President of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, held discussions with the leadership of the German company Svevind Energy Group, marking a crucial step toward the initiation of a groundbreaking project for the production of “green” hydrogen within the republic.
The venture outlines an ambitious plan encompassing the construction and operation of key components, including a desalination plant, a 40 GW renewable energy station leveraging wind and solar power, and a substantial 20 GW water electrolysis plant. The latter is poised to become a powerhouse, yielding an annual production capacity of 2 million tons of “green” hydrogen or an impressive 11 million tons of “green” ammonia.
The heart of the project lies in its technological prowess, amalgamating renewable energy sources such as wind and solar to generate a colossal 40 GW of power. This energy will be channeled into a state-of-the-art water electrolysis plant, employing cutting-edge technology to produce “green” hydrogen. The approach underscores a commitment to sustainable practices, minimizing environmental impact.
If successfully realized, the project is poised to be a game-changer, not only for Kazakhstan but on a global scale. The annual production capacity of “green” hydrogen and ammonia at such a substantial scale positions the country as a key player in the burgeoning green energy sector. The initiative aligns with global efforts to transition toward cleaner, more sustainable energy alternatives.
