The company, which was recently awarded a grant to set up a Hydrogen pilot plant and refueling station at the coast of Namibia, is a joint venture between the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group and its international Belgium-based partner, CMB.TECH.
“One of these four projects include our Cleanergy pilot plant and refueling station. We plan to be up and running at the end of 2023. We are immensely proud of this initiative which is a first in Namibia. With our training centre we want to upskill Namibians to kickstart the hydrogen economy in Walvis Bay,” said O&L Group Director: Innovations Eike Krafft.
This comes as green hydrogen is being touted globally as a vital carrier of non-fossil energy at a time when developed countries are trying to decarbonise their industries and guide economies towards a greener energy future.
“We know that Namibia has vast potential to develop a strong green hydrogen industry and become a key player in global energy markets. We have all the ingredients necessary (wind, sun and seawater) to develop a sustainable green hydrogen industrial base to drive socio-economic growth and O&L is pleased to be one of the forerunners in this new industry in our country,” said Krafft.
Roy Campe, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at CMB.TECH, said green hydrogen will transform Walvis Bay to become the first hydrogen port in Africa. Stay informed: Hydrogen Namibia
