The Daures Green Hydrogen Village is a green hydrogen project that benefits from the amazing natural resources available in Namibia. The project site measures 15,000 hectares of land with an ongoing metrological mast campaign assessing wind data that commenced in October 2023.

The pilot proof of concept facility will produce 18 tons of green hydrogen and 100 tons of green ammonia and will be launched in Q3 2024. The DGHV has completed its pre-feasibility and feasibility works with Fichtner GmbH and is in the process of commencing its commence pre-FEED and FEED. The feasibility study indicates that maximum generation on site ranges between 6GW amd 7GW of renewable energy, a 2.5GW Electrolyser producing in excess of 180k tons of hydrogen and 1m tons of green ammonia per annum.
