Infinity Power Holding, the joint venture between Egypt’s Infinity and UAE’s Masdar along with Conjuncta GmbH, a German project developer, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the government of Mauritania, represented by the Ministry of Petroleum, Mines, and Energy to develop a Green Hydrogen plant over four phases, which is expected to produce up to 8 million tons of Green Hydrogen or other renewable fuels of non-biological origins, upon completion.


The plant, which will be located near the Northeast of Nouakchott, can reach an Electrolyser capacity of up to 10GW, making it capable of producing up to 8 million tons of Green Hydrogen or its equivalent in renewable fuels of non-biological origins. The green hydrogen, ammonia, and/or other renewable fuels produced from the plant will be used for exports. The first phase of the plant of 400 MW is expected to be operational by 2028. The overall project will provide employment to approximately 3,000 workers during construction and 1,000 workers when operational.
