A rocky island surrounded by waterThe scope of work includes analysing the various potential routes for the offshore pipeline to connect Barcelona to Marseille across the Mediterranean Sea. This comprehensive evaluation will allow to identify a preferred corridor for BarMar, and will consider technical, economic, environmental, and societal perspectives, emphasizing the commitment of the three Transmission System Operators (TSOs) to a well-rounded and sustainable approach.

Given the cross-border and multidisciplinary nature of the BarMar project, the societal and environmental impact will be conducted by Tecnoambiente, supported by Francom and Natural Power.

BarMar is part of the H2med project. The H2med project is composed of a hydrogen interconnection between Portugal and Spain (Celorico da Beira – Zamora) as well as a maritime pipeline connecting Spain and France (Barcelona – Marseille).

The H2med project is a transnational effort aimed at connecting the hydrogen networks of the Iberian Peninsula with those in Northwest Europe. Its goal is to enable Europe to be supplied with affordable, renewable hydrogen by 2030.

The project was launched in October 2022 by the President of the Government of Spain, the President of France, and the Prime Minister of Portugal.
