A 50:50 consortium composed of Chariot & Total Eren announced that it will launch feasibility studies in order to co-develop the Nour Project, a large-scale green hydrogen project to be located in Mauritania. The Consortium will benefit from the dedicated expertise of Total Eren's teams, holding a wide range of experience and knowledge in solar, wind, hybrid and green hydrogen projects globally. Chariot will co-lead on project development and permitting, local content, and stakeholder engagement The Consortium will seek to progress on the in-depth feasibility study and offtake for the green hydrogen. Chariot and Total Eren may evaluate further green hydrogen opportunities together in other African countries. Thanks to its unique solar and wind resources, Mauritania has proved to be exceptionally well-placed to implement Power-to-X solutions, providing Nour Project the possibility to produce among the most competitive green hydrogen in the world. With a potential reaching up to 10 GW of electrolysis to be installed, it could become, once fully implemented, one of the most significant green hydrogen projects in Africa. Through the Nour Project, the Consortium will contribute to a sustainable economic development in Mauritania, including potentially providing baseload power to the national grid, diversifying industrial activities, promoting job creation and developing local infrastructure. It will also be providing a cost-effective, transportable energy solution to replace CO2 emitting fuels for exportation to the European market.
