    Total Eren, Chariot to probe potential for up to 10 GW of electrolysers in Mauritania

    September 6, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      September 6 (Renewables Now) - Africa-focused energy firm Chariot Ltd (LON:CHAR) and France’s Total Eren have joined forces to study the potential for building a large-scale green hydrogen production plant in Mauritania that could reach an electrolyser capacity of up to 10 GW.

      The Nour project is planned to be realised through a 50/50 partnership between the two firms, renewable power producer Total Eren said on Tuesday.

      Under the arrangement, the duo plans to carry out an in-depth feasibility study for the production of green hydrogen through electrolysis and the potential off-take of the output.

      The partners may assess additional opportunities for producing green hydrogen in other African countries.

      Chariot will co-lead on project development and permitting, local content and stakeholder engagement for the Mauritanian project. “Our skillsets complement Chariot's well and we intend to share our expertise throughout the project's development,” said Fabienne Demol, Executive Vice-President & Global Head of Business Development of Total Eren.

      According to the partners, Mauritania is “exceptionally well-placed” for Power-to-X initiatives due to its abundant wind and solar resources.

      Total Eren, of which French energy major TotalEnergies owns about 30%, is already partnering with Chariot on several projects involving the installation of wind and solar power capacity for mining customers across Africa.

      Adonis Pouroulis, Chariot's CEO added: "We are keen to continue to expand our green hydrogen project portfolio and, as with our renewables business, we look forward to collaborating on further opportunities alongside Total Eren in the future."
