Total Eren and Chariot Ltd have announced the launch of feasility studies to do-develop Project Nour, a large-scale green hydrogen project in Mauritania.
In September 2021, Chariot had already signed an MoU with the Mauritanian Ministry of Petroleum, Mines & Energy to progress the venture. The agreement notably gave Project Nour exclusivity over 14,400km2 of onshore and offshore area where pre-feasibility and feasibility studies would be conducted to generate solar and wind power used in electrolysis to split water and produce green hydrogen and oxygen.
The new 50:50 partnership between Total Eren and Chariot will pool additional resources into the project’s feasibility, with a view of developing up to 10 GW in Mauritania.
Total Eren already work together on several clean energy projects in Africa, under a long-term joint-development partnership signed in November 2021.
