Sasol has signed a memorandum of agreement with the Northern Cape Development Agency for a feasibility study to explore a green hydrogen project in Boegoebaai in the province.
Sasol’s executive vice-president for energy, Priscillah Mabelane, made the announcement on Wednesday, during the 2021 Sustainable Infrastructure Development Symposium SA.
It is envisioned that Boegoebaai could be an export hub for green hydrogen and ammonia. The study could take approximately 24 months. Its outcomes would determine the next steps, Mabelane explained.
The project would be located at the Namakwa Special Economic Zone, Sasol indicated in a separate statement.
