Signature of an agreement for the construction of a first industrial plant for "green" hydrogen in Morocco on 10.06.2020 in Berlin
Upon unveiling its €9 Billion National Hydrogen Strategy, Germany selects Morocco for developing the first industrial plant for "green hydrogen" in Africa. Hydrogen is key for decarbonising steel and chemical industries as well as the transport sector. As Morocco imports over 1 Million tons of grey ammonia to support its global phosphate-based fertilizer industry, an opportunity arises to produce green hydrogen for ammonia synthesis from renewables, mostly wind energy. A Memorandum of understanding has been signed between the two governments to support this project.
Besides the aforementioned to be carried-out with MASEN, the German-Morocco collaboration also includes the building of a Power-to-X research/demonstration platform for knowledge transfer with IRESEN in partnership with other stakeholders.
