240516003689 - Proposed Construction and Operation of the Alkaline Electrolysis and Green Ammonia Synthesis Plants, and Associated Infrastructure on the Remainder of Farm Geluk No.116 and Portion 7 of Farm 58, Walvis Bay, Erongo Region

Elof Hansson Hydrogen Namibia (Pty) Ltd, a company incorporated in Namibia and its strategic partners intends to develop a green hydrogen manufacturing plant in Namibia. The proposed project will be located in Erongo Region with Walvis Bays earmarked as the port of export. Overall, the production of green hydrogen will consist of; (i) a state-of-the-art photovoltaic solar plant that will power the all-production processes, (ii) a seawater desalination plant that will supply distilled water to the electrolysis plant, (iii) an electrolysis plant that will produce hydrogen (iii) an ammonium synthesis that will produce ammonia and ammonia storage facility. This report provides an environmental assessment for the alkaline electrolysis and ammonia synthesis plants, and associated infrastructure. The electrolysis plant will be located on desert land, at remainder of Farm Geluk No.116. The farm is situated at coordinates 22.551793°S, 15.34992°E, which is located about 80km north-east of Walvis Bay. The Farm covers an aerial extent of 7100 ha.
