NORTH AFRICA – Renewable energy development company CWP Global, has partnered with Bechtel Energy Technologies & Solutions (BETS) to support developments of large-scale green hydrogen and ammonia facilities in North Africa.
CWP is a pioneer developer of innovative, large-scale renewable energy across four continents, with a proven record of designing, financing, and operating utility-scale wind and solar, and a fast-growing portfolio of groundbreaking green hydrogen projects.
The agreement will facilitate ongoing conceptual and early planning solutions in selecting optimally integrated configurations for the facilities.
The deal is set to add a boost to the two green hydrogen projects currently being developed by CWP, the 15GW wind and solar Amun project in Morocco, and the 30GW wind and solar Aman project in Mauritania.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Bechtel on conceptual and planning solutions for one of our flagship green hydrogen projects in Africa,” said Alex Hewitt, CWP Global CEO.
CWP will benefit from leveraging Bechtel’s record in engineering large-scale projects combined with the rich process optimization and energy integration expertise of BETS.
A move that will help CWP Global support the decarbonization of key global industries on the road to net zero.
Bechtel will support CWP on their next steps toward developing and building complex green hydrogen hubs.
The company continues to provide both technical solutions and global megaproject planning and execution capabilities to help its customers deliver these projects.
“Bechtel is focused on energy transition projects as part of our commitment to support the world’s path to Net Zero,” said Jamie Cochrane, manager of Energy Transition at Bechtel.
“We are excited to work with customers like CWP who are committed to decreasing carbon emissions and shaping the future of energy.”
According to Cochrane, large-scale, complex green ammonia production projects will decarbonize global energy consumption.
The overall assessment will include recommendations for a techno-economic implementation plan, starting with how electrolyzer capacity requirements align with location-specific design challenges.
Other considerations include cooling water supply and wastewater disposal for CWP Global’s portfolio of green projects.
Since 1898, Bechtel has completed more than 25,000 projects in 160 countries on all seven continents that have created jobs, grown economies, increased access to energy, and made the world a safer, cleaner place.
