Consultancy for the Feasibility Study on three (3) Hydrogen Valleys
The overall purpose of the consultancy is to conduct a feasibility study on the identified hydrogen valleys to assess the viability of green hydrogen production and its derivatives in the identified valleys.
Three hydrogen valleys have been identified to form part of the green fuel ecosystem. The three hydrogen valleys will produce ammonia, synthetic fuels and hot briquetted iron (HBI) in the southern region (Karas), the central region (including Walvis Bay port and the capital Windhoek) and the northern region (Kunene).
The southern Karas region is blessed with a world class blend of wind and solarrenewable power resource, providing an excellent platform for the production of low-cost green hydrogen. In 2021 the Namibian Government launched the Southern Corridor Development Initiative (SCDI) aimed at hydrogen catalysed development in the region. This development includes Green Steel, Green Mining, and Green Agriculture all within the Southern region.
This central region includes the Erongo, Khomas and Otjozondjupa regions which are home to a large portion of Namibia’s workforce. It is also well positioned from an infrastructure perspective with road, rail and port facilities linking the three (and farther afield) regions and has an abundance of solar resource. It is envisaged that this region become a “hub” for the production of Synfuels and related green hydrogen equipment manufacturing facilities.
The northern Kunene region is blessed with a world class blend of wind and solar renewable power resources, providing an excellent platform to produce low-cost green hydrogen. The coastline is relatively uninhabited and remote from existing infrastructure which will enable bespoke development for the needs of a green hydrogen and related derivatives industry.
