The German investment company Conjuncta announced on Wednesday a new green hydrogen project involving the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Mauritania.
Conjuncta said it signed a memorandum of understanding with the Egyptian renewable energy firm Infinity, the Emirati renewable energy firm Masdar and the government of Mauritania to build a green hydrogen plant in the North African country. The plant will be located northeast of the capital, Nouakchott, and have a capacity of 10 gigawatts. This amounts to 8 million tons of green hydrogen per year. Conjuncta said the facility will also produce ammonia or fuel produced from plants and the energy will be used for exports, according to a press release.
