Projet d'ammoniac vert de Coega

Hive Hydrogen SA ouvre la voie à un avenir durable en développant des projets innovants d'ammoniac vert dans le monde entier.

Hive Hydrogen South Africa is backed by Hive Energy and Built Africa. The team has been operating since September 2019. In 2021 we announced the establishment of a $5.7bn Green Ammonia Plant, to be powered by 3.5 GW of renewable energy. The plant will have a dedicated power supply at the Coega Special Economic Zone, alongside the Port of Ngqura.

There is a massive surge in demand for ammonia globally to meet current agricultural, chemical, and mining requirements. Furthermore, Green Ammonia is expected to become the chosen fuel in the maritime industry. Because of the changes in the renewable energy sector, now is the perfect time to invest in this commodity.

Southern Africa is one of a few regions around the world with very favourable conditions for green hydrogen and ammonia production and export. South Africa has world-class renewable resources, good harbours, and a high standard of local skills. Because of these features, it is the ideal location for green hydrogen and green ammonia plants. Based in Nelson Mandela Bay, the plant will produce 1,000,000 tons of green ammonia a year. Green ammonia produced in SA will be exported to world markets. The export list will include the Far East, Europe, and the USA.

En décembre 2021, nous avons annoncé notre intention de créer l'une des plus grandes usines d'ammoniac vert au monde à Nelson Mandela Bay, en Afrique du Sud. 

Working alongside Built Africa we are developing large scale hydrogen and ammonia plants across South Africa, powered by renewable energy.

Following COP26 and mounting global pressure to reduce fossil fuel use, we are going to leverage our renewable energy expertise to develop green ammonia across the globe. The Hive site is located in Coega, Nelson Mandela Bay.

It is a rare site as it is operating in a deep-water harbour with available berths, liquid bulk storage and shipping capability, large-scale on-site power generation capacity, water availability, large capacity grid connections for power wheeling, and defined and permitted servitudes, as well as skilled local contractors. We have local land secured close to the plant for the establishment of a solar farm with a capacity of up to 1,230 MW. Once complete, the solar farm will be the largest PV park in South Africa. Our goal is to pave the way for environmental best practice in South Africa with this development.
