TOTAL in a Consortium for Green Hydrogen Feasibility in Mauritania

There’s a potential of up to 10,000MW of Electrolysis to be Installed

TOTALEnergies’ renewables subsidiary, TOTAL Eren, is in a consortium with Chariot Limited to launch feasibility studies to    co-develop the “Nour Project”, a large-scale green hydrogen project to be located in Mauritania.

“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”, Chariot says in a release. “It will also be providing a cost-effective, transportable energy solution to replace CO2 emitting fuels for exportation to the European market”.

The consortium is equally owned (50%/50%) partnership between Chariot and TOTAL Eren. It 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; and

“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”, Chariot says. 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.
