CWP Global, based in the US, has partnered with Germany’s Hydrogenious liquid organic hydrogen carriers (LOHC) technologies to look into the feasibility of shipping Moroccan-produced green hydrogen to Europe. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by the partners to carry out the feasibility study this year. They intend to look into the possibility of exporting 500 tonnes of green hydrogen per day using Hydrogenious’ LOHC technology.
The AMUN hydrogen project of CWP Global near Tan Tan, Morocco, will be explored as a starting point in the study. The complex will supply green hydrogen and ammonia to the fertiliser and maritime shipping industries, among others, and be powered by 15 GW of wind and solar energy. As per the company’s statement, the LOHC solution has great potential for long-distance hydrogen shipments because it can be handled safely at urban ports.
In December 2022, Squadron Energy announced that it acquired CWP for an undisclosed fee. With more than 1.1 GW of operational wind assets, CWP is a corporation that specialises in wind, solar, and battery farms. The Sapphire Wind Farm in New South Wales is one of its asset holdings; it has 75 turbines and the ability to generate up to 270 MW of clean energy. The energy company also owns the Crudine Ridge wind farm, which has a 142 MW capacity, and the Murra Warra I and II projects, which have an installed total of 435 MW.
