CWP and Mauritania sign MoU for the development of a US$40 billion green hydrogen project

Date 30.5.2021

The government of Mauritania and renewable energy developer CWP Global
have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the development of a 30GW
“Power-to-X” project. This momentous announcement sets the stage for
development work to begin on what will be the world’s biggest renewable
energy project, exporting green hydrogen and its derivatives to global markets.
The project, called “AMAN”, will be located in the North of the country on a
desert site of approximately 8,500km2.

CWP, one of the developers behind the 26GW Asian Renewable Energy Hub, is a
global pioneer in the development of ultra-large-scale green hydrogen hubs.
The company identified Mauritania as one of the best locations on the planet for
the production of low-cost green hydrogen. The project’s hybrid wind and solar
generation benefits from a stable, high-capacity factor profile at the desert site,
promising some of the cheapest clean energy in the world, and making it ideal
for massive-scale green hydrogen and its derivatives. The 30GW of wind and
solar will power electrolysers for the production of green hydrogen, and will play
a significant role in reducing carbon pollution from energy generation, transport,
agriculture and steel production, and contribute towards the net zero emissions
trajectories required to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.

The Mauritanian government has opened the door to international investors and
committed to accelerate progress on the project’s development and approvals
process.

 

Mr Mark Crandall, Founder and Chairman of CWP Global said:
“We are pleased to have the confidence and support of the
Mauritanian government for the development of this ambitious
project, which will create a stable export vector and generate
thousands of new jobs in construction, local manufacturing,
operations and export facilitation. The project will have a
transformative effect on the Mauritanian economy, generating
billions of dollars in export and providing access to inexpensive
electricity and water for the population and economy. Projects like
AMAN are immensely important in order to address the world’s
most pressing challenges – sustainable development and climate
change mitigation – and we are very proud to have the
government of Mauritania as our partner in this monumental
endeavour.”

Mr. Abdelsalam Mohamed Saleh, Minister of Petroleum, Mines and Energy of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania said:

“ The Government of Mauritania has put the exploitation of its immense renewable resources as a top priority in line with the commitment of his excellency the President of the Republic to promote accelerated, sustainable, and equitable economic growth for all the people of Mauritania.

The Government of Mauritania is grateful to CWP and to its CEO Mr. Mark Crandall for his trust and express its unwavering commitment to this monumental endeavored”
