Cleanergy Solutions Namibia kicks off construction works for Africa's first public refuelling station with onsite green hydrogen production
Cleanergy Solutions Namibia, a joint venture between the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group and CMB.TECH, announces a premiere: the bricklaying of Africa’s first public green hydrogen refuelling station. The hydrogen production plant established in Walvis Bay, Namibia, uses solar energy for hydrogen production onsite. This innovative facility will supply hydrogen to trucks, port equipment, and railway applications. As an integral part of this project, a Hydrogen Academy will be established to educate and train local individuals on hydrogen technology and its wide-ranging applications. The hydrogen refuelling station is expected to be fully operational by mid 2024.

O&L group & CMB.TECH launch Namibia's first green hydrogen production plant
On Tuesday, 22 February 2022, the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group and CMB.TECH launched Namibia's first green hydrogen production plant. The plant, a demonstration hub for hydrogen applications, will be built in the Erongo region. The construction will start during 2022 with the aim to be operational by the end of 2023. Depending on the results of the demonstration plant, a larger scale production plant will follow in a second phase, possibly using ammonia as transport fuel.
