    ReNew Power signs MoU for USD 8bn green hydrogen plant in Egypt

    July 28, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      July 28 (Renewables Now) - Indian renewables company ReNew Power (NASDAQ:RNW) is planning to build a facility in Egypt's Suez Canal Economic Zone which is expected to produce eventually up to 220,000 tonnes of green hydrogen annually.

      A memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed between ReNew Power, the General Authority for the Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZONE), Egypt's Sovereign Fund, the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company and the Authority for the Development and Use of Renewable Energy, the Egyptian Cabinet said on Wednesday.

      Under the terms of the MoU, ReNew will start a preliminary feasibility study to establish a production site with investments totalling USD 8 billion (EUR 7.88bn).

      The project will be implemented in several phases. Initially, a pilot electrolysis plant with a capacity of 150 MW will be set up and powered by 570 MW of renewable energy. The factory is expected to produce 20,000 tonnes of green hydrogen annually at this stage.

      In the next phase, the annual output of the plant will be raised by up to 200,000 tonnes of green hydrogen, bringing the total production to 220,000 tonnes. To reach this goal, ReNew will add 1.5 GW of electrolysis capacity which will be powered by a total of 5.68 GW of green energy.

      The sites for the renewable energy plants will be selected by the New and Renewable Energy Authority and the electricity will be delivered through the national power grid, said the minister for electricity and renewable energy Mohamed Shaker El-Markabi.

      The plan for the large-scale facility is the latest addition to Egypt's ambitious pipeline of green hydrogen projects. Earlier this year, SCZONE signed six MoUs for the development of green hydrogen and green ammonia projects in the Ain Sokhna region with total investments reaching USD 10 billion.
