Namibia is the ideal location to harvest green energy and to convert this energy into fuels of the future. Namibia is a political stable African country located near the largest shipping trade-lanes. The country also has one of the highest sourcing potential worldwide for cheap green electricity.
CMB.TECH believes that a sustainable project approach with local embedment is critical for project success. Therefore, a JV was established with a local Namibian company, Ohlthaver & List, and a phased project approach was developed. End of 2021, it was decided to start with the development of a Hydrogen Demonstration Hub.
A training and education centre will be developed to empower local Namibians with the required knowledge and skills.
The produced hydrogen will by supplied to local applications like trucks, locomotives and port & mining equipment.
The demonstration project will be operational by the end of 2023 and will comprise of a 4 MW electrolyser and a 5.5 MW(p) solar park.
03.06.2021 - Today CMB.TECH will open the first multimodal hydrogen refuelling station in Antwerp. It is the first refuelling station in the world that produces green hydrogen, which will be used to powerships, tube trailers, cars, trucks and buses. In addition to the hydrogen refuelling station, CMB.TECH will today launch a hydrogen truck.
