Exploring feasibility of a giga-watt-scale green hydrogen and ammonia production plant to introduce new decarbonization technologies to the region. 


Project Amun, sister project to Aman and clearly not ones to waste a good moniker - or even syllables - CWP Global has selected Bechtel to support developments of large-scale green

hydrogen and ammonia facilities. The agreement creates a platform for the partnership to provide ongoing conceptual and early planning solutions in selecting optimal integrated configurations for the facilities.  


“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Bechtel on conceptual and planning solutions for one of our flagship green hydrogen projects in Africa,” said Alex Hewitt, CWP Global CEO. “Their technological and scientific expertise will allow us to accelerate the next stage of project development,and keep us on the right track to deliver the first million tons of green hydrogen and ammonia by 2028, helping CWP Global support the decarbonization of key global industries on the road to net zero.”



“Bechtel is focused on energy transition projects as part of our commitment to support the world’s path to Net Zero. We are excited to work with customers like CWP who are committed to decreasing carbon emissions and shaping the future of energy,” said Jamie Cochrane, manager of Energy Transition at Bechtel. “Large-scale, complex green ammonia production projects will decarbonize global energy consumption. We continue to provide both technical solutions and global mega project planning and execution capabilities to help our customers deliver these projects.”


CWP has successfully developed, financed and built over 1.5 GW of renewable energy projects in Europe and Australia, and is currently developing upwards of 140 GW of renewable energy capacity intended for the production of green hydrogen and its derivatives on three continents.


Bechtel Energy Technologies & Solutions (BETS), a group focused on helping customers accelerate their path to net zero, will support CWP on their next steps towards developing and building complex green hydrogen hubs. CWP benefits from leveraging Bechtel’s track record in engineering large-scale projects combined with rich process optimization and energy integration expertise of BETS.

The overall assessment for the Morocco scheme will include recommendations for a techno-economic implementation plan, starting with how electrolyser capacity requirements align with location specific design challenges, cooling water supply, and wastewater disposal for CWP Global’s portfolio of green projects and developing 2 GW of grid-connected renewables projects in Bulgaria, Serbia and Romania.

We will see.  This would seem to conflict with the announcement of the project in Mauritania, since the governments of Morocco and Mauritania are not on good terms.
