MICINN Financing
Project Peixe Verde with reference number PSE-370300-2006-1, has been financed by the Science an Innovation Ministry.

Project co-financed by the European Union


The Spanish fishing sector has very diverse companies, but if there is an outstanding characteristic it is the abundance of small companies, frequently owners with an only ship that are continuing the family tradition.

In the Port of Celeiro, forced by the necessity that generates the distance, they understood a while ago that they should join efforts to negotiate the solution jointly to their problems. The company "Puerto deCeleiro S.A." was born this way, whose shareholders are near 100 fishing vessel owners. They were able to build the one that was the best rasher of Spanish fishing, they increased their fleet, they acquired fishing rights, and they approached the first projects of R+D.

In that context, with the support of the Regional Government of Galicia, it begins to dream of the "Celeiro Fishing Technological Center " that will center their efforts in three areas : Product, CIT and Energy.

In that moment was when the promoter of R+D in Celeiro and Director of SERVICEL, Andrés Díaz, begins to look for information on hydrogen. He wanted to know if it will be an option. One of those days that is "time to dream", very advanced the afternoon after solving the daily work of the ships, he called by telephone to ARIEMA and he asked: "hi, is it possible to use hydrogen in fishing ships?"

At the other side of the telephone was Rafael Luque, Director of ARIEMA that was very clear after exchanging impressions: "it will be a future option, very interesting to investigate, but short term it cannot compete in price. You are sure that there are not other options: consumption reduction, other transition fuels...?"

Joining efforts, people of SERVICEL and ARIEMA (for their respective specialization in fishing and energy) were organized and after almost two years of work in which they were adding partners (and friends...) Green Peixe showed up. And of course that anything had been made without the support of the Brotherhood of Fishermen of Celeiro and Puerto de Celeiro S.A., singular company that included in a Council of Administration an conference on the possible uses of the hydrogen in their vessels.

From the administrations it is very important the support of the Regional Government of Galicia, promoter and partner of CETPEC, Fishing Technological Center, that was born in the summer of the 2005 also having the support of the City council of Viveiro.

 And, like a very "singular" administration, it has been vital the support of people of IDAE, technical arm in Energy of the Ministry of Industry. They have always been there.

The first contest of ideas "Peixe Verde", has been realized.
