Background

Bizkaia Energia, the company founded to own Amorebieta, was originally owned 50/50 by Osaka Gas and Electricity Supply Board (ESB). In 2014 they sold their shares to Arclight Capital Partners LLC.[1] In 2020 an unnamed subsidiary of Castleton Commodities International acquired ownership of Bizkaia Energia as majority owner, along with White Castle Capital.[2][3][4]

The White Castle and Castleton Commodities partnership, along with Nortegas and SENER, intend to build a 20 MW green hydrogen facility at the site and to eventually run the gas units on a dual-fuel mix of natural gas and hydrogen.[5]
