South Africa’s R105-billion green hydrogen, green ammonia project in the Eastern Cape took another major leap forward on Tuesday with the announcement of its underpinning by a cluster of nine solar projects in the very high solar yielding area of De Aar. The giga scale 1 230 MW solar project is the co-development of a consortium made up of Hive Hydrogen, Akuo Energy Afrique, Africoast Investments and Golden Sunshine Trading, which has been working towards this milestone for the past two years, and follows Hive Hydrogen signing an agreement earlier this year with Genesis Eco-Energy to implement 372 MW of wind power in the Western Cape, also in support of the green hydrogen, green ammonia project at Coega.
