Japanese giants explore renewable ammonia production in Chile

As part of the HyEx project, Mitsui & Co., Toyo Engineering and Enaex will develop a solar-powered, 18,000 tonnes-per-year renewable ammonia plant in Tocopilla, northern Chile. Just outside of Tocopilla, Sumitomo and Chilean transmission utility Colbún have teamed up to explore renewable ammonia production & export. The pair will also assess million-tonne-per-year production in Chile’s south. Also in South America, Proton Ventures have contracted Fitchner to assess the feasibility of planned renewable production projects.


Offshore ammonia production in Greenland

H2Carrier and wind project developer Anori will jointly develop Greenland’s first commercial wind farm, which will power the offshore production of ammonia via H2Carrier’s P2XFloater™ vessels. The project could produce as much as 900,000 tonnes of ammonia per year, targeting export markets. H2Carrier also announced that Larsen & Toubro will design & construct the “topside” sections of the P2XFloater™ vessels in India, with the hulls to be built in Asia.


Envision Energy – green hydrogen and green ammonia business

Envision Group is a world leading net-zero tech supplier that aspires to solve the challenges for a sustainable future, with the integrated full value chain of the green new industry from upstream wind power supply to downstream industrial gases. Envision targets decarbonization at scale and offers a variety of solution such as sales of equipment & system, turn-key project handover, operation & maintainance and chemical process design solution. With a firm start in Chifeng city & Jinzhou port, Envision is right now constructing large scale green hydrogen & ammonia projects in mainland China, which will be on-stream by the end…


New Canadian export projects unveiled

Last month, four significant production projects were announced in Canada’s maritime provinces:

  • An export facility producing ammonia fuel at the Port of Belledune, New Brunswick. The Port Authority has also signed an agreement to create a direct trade corridor with the Port of Wilhelmshaven in Germany.
  • Two projects powered by onshore wind in southwest Newfoundland: the 100,000 tonnes-per-year Project Nujio’Qonik, and the 900,000 tonnes per year Project Lynx, with the latter being developed by Fortescue Future Industries.
  • And the Spirit of Scotia: a sprawling, GW-scale renewable hydrogen project being developed by Green Hydrogen International.


Mauritanian mega-project takes next steps

New project details have emerged from the AMAN mega-project in Mauritania. CWP Global indicates the project will include 18GW of wind capacity and 12GW of solar capacity in northwest Mauritania, producing 10 million tonnes of renewable ammonia per year for export and local use.


Oman green ammonia Supergiant takes shape

InterContinental Energy, OQ and Enertech announced a number of key development updates last week for their 25 GW Green Energy Oman (“GEO”) project. Three specialist organisations have been contracted to perform feasibility, engineering & impact assessment work, and new details were announced about the project’s location, including a potential site for ammonia production on the Oman coast.


Ammonia exports from regional Russia

Eurasia Mining and H4Energy will develop two hydrogen/ammonia export projects at either end of Russia. The Kola Green Hydrogen Project in Murmansk (far west) seeks to take advantage of cheap, abundant zero-carbon energy, combined with easy access to key shipping routes. On Sakhalin Island (far east) a new, wind-powered P2X facility is being explored.
