Moroccan utility system construction company ‘Falcon Capital Dakhla’ has inked a pivotal partnership with French HDF Energy to construct new green hydrogen production plant.
The project, named ‘White Dunes,’ not only aspires to produce highly competitive green hydrogen but also aims to establish itself as a benchmark operator in Morocco’s rapidly expanding renewable energy sector.
The primary objectives of the ‘White Dunes’ project are multi-faceted. With an investment totaling $2 billion, the venture envisions reaching a staggering capacity of 10 GW in wind energy, 7 GW in photovoltaic energy, and 8 GW in electrolysis. This ambitious undertaking positions Morocco as a key player in the global green energy landscape, setting the stage for groundbreaking advancements in hydrogen production and renewable power generation.
The project’s technological backbone involves cutting-edge infrastructure for green hydrogen production and utilization. HDF Energy, a trailblazer in large-scale green hydrogen infrastructure and high-power fuel cells, brings its expertise to the venture. The collaboration promises to leverage advanced technology to position Morocco as a frontrunner in the production of cost-effective and sustainable green hydrogen.
The ‘White Dunes’ project holds the potential to reshape Morocco’s energy future and make a significant impact on the global stage. By harnessing the abundant wind resources in the Dakhla region, the project aims to capitalize on an average wind speed of 10 m/s at a height of 100 meters. This places Dakhla among the coveted Class I sites for wind energy production, emphasizing the strategic selection of the location for maximum impact.
