Getech has entered into a partnership with LIAG (Leibniz Institute for Applied Geophysics), a key player in the HyAfrica consortium. The collaborative effort aims to expedite the exploration and development of natural hydrogen in Morocco, Mozambique, South Africa, and Togo.
The primary goals of the 3-year HyAfrica project are to identify viable natural hydrogen deposits, also known as white and geological hydrogen, in the specified African regions. The project will not only focus on the scientific aspects but also assess the economic and social impacts of harnessing natural hydrogen as a sustainable energy source. The insights gained from this exploration will play a pivotal role in shaping strategic plans for leveraging hydrogen in the continent’s energy transition.
Getech, a leading geoscience company, brings its best-in-class potential fields data, machine learning capabilities, and geoscience expertise to support the research efforts of the consortium. By joining the geophysical research already underway, Getech aims to identify promising natural hydrogen resources and enhance the project’s overall capabilities in resource prediction.
The collaboration between Getech and LIAG not only accelerates the understanding of natural hydrogen but also positions Getech as a key player in the evolving landscape of low-carbon energy sources. With the global focus on clean energy solutions, the findings of the HyAfrica project are anticipated to contribute significantly to Africa’s sustainable energy transition.
