Total and Chariot progress 10GW Mauritania plant


March 12, 2024

Total Energies and Africa’s Chariot Energy have completed a key feasibility study for their proposed 10GW Project Nour green hydrogen development in Mauritania.

The companies are developing Project Nour in a 50:50 joint venture between Chariot’s fully-owned green hydrogen subsidiary and TE H2, which is co-owned by Total Energies and Eren Group.

The pair plan to start development at the scheme with an initial phase of 3GW renewables powering up to 1.6GW of hydrogen electrolysers. They intend to use the green hydrogen they produce for the green steel industry and green ammonia exports to regions including Europe.

Laurent Coche, chief executive at Chariot Green Hydrogen, said: “Nour’s size and scale has the potential to have a material impact both as a domestic and export producer and we are 2 proud to have set the development along this path. With TE H2 and the Government we will continue to look at how best to bring it into production to maximise value in the near and long term for the benefit of all stakeholders.”
