Conjuncta GmbH and Infinity Power Holding have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Mauritania for a renewable hydrogen production facility in Mauritania that will see another import avenue for Germany.

Expected to be developed over four phases, the renewable hydrogen plant will be located to the northeast of Nouakchott.

According to a joint press release from Conjuncta and Infinity, the facility is set to see around 10GW of electrolyser capacity, enough to produce up to 8 million tonnes per year of renewable hydrogen or other renewable fuels of non-biological origin.

Speaking on this occasion, Abdessalam Mohamed Saleh, Minister of Petroleum, Mines and Energy said, “Our country is determined to play a leading position on the global map of the green hydrogen economy in the coming decades. We strongly believe that the development of the green hydrogen industry in Mauritania will bring environmental, economic and social benefits to our country and the world. I am very pleased today to have signed this MOU with the Consortium (Infinity Power & Conjuncta GmbH) which has very strong technical and financial capabilities and deep relationships allowing it to enter the European green hydrogen market, particularly in Germany”.

Speaking of the agreement, Mohamed Ismail Mansour, Chairman, Infinity Power said, “We are extremely delighted to partner with the government of Mauritania in building this green hydrogen plant, which will provide not only the North-West but the entire continent of Africa with a clean, renewable energy source that will in turn foster a cleaner, greener future for us all. We look forward to many such partnerships as we continue to drive forward a sustainable shift to renewable energy for the entire continent and its people.”

Professor Stefan Liebing, CEO, Conjuncta GmbH added, “We are extremely proud that we have been able to agree this project with the Government of Mauritania. It will have a strong link to Germany both as a technology provider and a potential offtaker of green energy. It is by far the largest bilateral investment project ever and we look forward to making it a success story that will attract a lot more business activities between the two countries.”
