Haru Oni is the largest project of its kind in Latin America and one of the first worldwide. The plant will use renewable energy from the wind and a process called electrolysis to produce green hydrogen. The project will also capture CO2 and use a process of synthesis to combine the CO2 and Hydrogen to produce eFuels, including carbon neutral gasoline and carbon neutral LPG. The eFuel will create a way for existing infrastructure to become carbon neutral by continuously reusing and recycling the CO2.

Haru Oni Demonstration Plant


Estimated date for:

  • Construction start: first semester 2021
  • Start of operation: first semester 2022

The Location

Haru Oni will be located at the Tehuel Aike site in Magallanes, Chile, approximately 15 km north of Cabo Negro.

The Magallanes region provides some of the highest quality wind resources for renewable energy production that the world has to offer.

The project’s strategic location also provides access to both the Pacific and Atlantic Sea routes for export purposes.

The Companies

HIF is the owner and lead developer of the project.

Porsche, the world's largest sports car manufacturer, provided research and committed to purchase eFuels produced by the project.
Siemens Energy is the system integrator.

Enel Green Power, an Italian multinational operating in renewable energies, is a partner for wind generation and green hydrogen production at the plant.
ENAP, a Chilean state energy company, provides operational and logistics services.

Gasco contributes with research and development in relation to the production of carbon neutral LPG


With the help of the wind. A wind as constant and unique as the one that blows in southern Chile.

The wind will provide us with energy, the clean energy we need to make this happen.
