Namibia’s large-scale planning for hydrogen production was discussed at MEA Energy Week, with a plans advancing for a $9.4bn project.
he $9.4 billion project will be developed in phases with construction to commence in early 2025. An initial phase will deploy $4.4 billion to build 2GW of renewable generation capacity to produce 125,000 tonnes of green hydrogen by 2026. The project is planned to attain 5GW of renewable power, and 3GW electrolyser capacity, to produce 300,000 tonnes of green hydrogen annually by 2030, for regional and global markets. Output will be sold as hydrogen or processed into green ammonia.
Namibia selected Hyphen Energy, a joint venture between German renewable energy company Enertag and the investment and project development company Nicholas Holdings, last November to develop the project. The Namibian government has an option to take a 24 per cent equity shareholding in the project.
