RWE energy business

RWE and Hyphen Hydrogen Energy have signed a memorandum of understanding that could see RWE offtake up to 300,000 tons of green ammonia per year from Namibia.

The Namibian government has appointed Hyphen as the preferred bidder to develop the green hydrogen project in Namibia for export. The project aims to annually produce 1 million tons of green ammonia by 2027. German renewable energy project developer Enertrag is a joint venture partner of Hyphen.

RWE announced in March its plan to build a terminal for green ammonia in Brunsbuttel (Germany) by 2026. This terminal could serve as one port of destination for Namibian ammonia.
