CWP Global has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the government of Mauritania for the development of a 30GW “Power-to-X” project.
This announcement sets the stage for development work to begin on what will be the world’s biggest renewable energy project, exporting green hydrogen and its derivatives to global markets. The project, called “AMAN”, will be located in the North of the country on a desert site of approximately 8,500km2.
“We are pleased to have the confidence and support of the Mauritanian government for the development of this ambitious project, which will create a stable export vector and generate thousands of new jobs in construction, local manufacturing, operations and #export facilitation,” said Mark Crandall, Founder and Chairman of CWP Global.
