HydroMaal joins the AHP

Hargeisa, (Somaliland), Port Louis (Mauritius) - 7th December 2022

The African Hydrogen Partnership (AHP) is delighted to welcome HydroMaal Ltd as a member.

HydroMaal is the first AHP member based in the Horn of Africa region, focused on the development of green energy infrastructure in the local area. The region, particularly, Somaliland, is amongst the areas of the world with the highest renewable energy potential. These renewable resources combined with the country’s strategic location and relatively good infrastructure (ports and roads) make the country an ideal green energy hub for the production of industrial scale hydrogen and its derivatives.

Mr. Saed Guled, Group Business Development Director, HydroMaal said,

“Joining the AHP has practical and strategic significance for Hydromaal, Somaliland and for the region. Firstly, the Horn of Africa’s renewable energy potential will receive the global exposure it deserves and this will hopefully, encourage potential investors seeking opportunities in the green energy sector in the region. Secondly, the country’s immeasurable renewable resources have the potential to significantly contribute to the global supply of green and sustainable energy which is needed to decarbonize the global economy and reduce global warming. Thirdly, with the right partners and investment, the green energy sector in the country offers a pathway to turning the country and the region into a major global provider of clean energy.”

Dr Innocent Uwuijaren, AHP Director and Chairman, stated,

“We are delighted that HydroMaal has joined the AHP. As a relatively new indigenous company, focused on developing Green Hydrogen energy projects in the Horn of Africa, we wish HydroMaal the greatest success. They are taking advantage of the huge opportunities and green energy resources in Somaliland. AHP will be helping them make a success of their efforts and look forward to working with them as they develop new local projects.”

Siggi Huegemann, AHP Secretary General, said,

“There have been tremendous developments since the first time I reached out to our Hydrogen friends in Somaliland in March 2021 when we started discussions about establishing the first Hydrogen organisation in the Horn of Africa. Flexibility is a valuable real option. In addition to its great potential for producing low-cost, price competitive green Hydrogen and its strategic location, Somaliland showcases the value of African flexibility which can greatly expedite developments, projects and value creation. The managers in 1 Somaliland have shown that the determination of a few good people can make a huge difference. I look forward to working with HydroMaal on transforming the Horn of Africa into a global Hydrogen Superpower.”
