Sasol to develop a hydrogen economy in South Africa
The Boegoebaai “green hydrogen” development has been designated a Strategic Integrated Project (SIP) in the South African National Development Plan and is located in the Namakwa Special Economic Zone (SEZ). The project’s location and classification as a SIP are key enablers to exploring Boegoebaai’s potential as a global green hydrogen hub.
Sasol has been engaging with the Infrastructure and Investment Office (IIO) of the Presidency to develop a hydrogen economy in South Africa. The company has signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Northern Cape Development Agency (NCEDA) to lead the feasibility study to explore the potential of Boegoebaai as an export hub for green hydrogen and ammonia. This study is expected to take approximately 24 months. The outcomes of this feasibility study will determine the next step of development.
Sasol has signed a MOA with the Gauteng Provincial Government (GPG) to leverage Special Economic Zones (SEZs) that have been earmarked as enablers to unlocking South Africa’s green hydrogen market potential for domestic use, such as mobility and aviation. In parallel, Sasol has partnered with the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) who will provide joint funding for the feasibility study.
