South Africa’s Phelan Green invests US$2.5bn in a green hydrogen project in Peru

The South African-based developer Phelan Green Energy plans to invest US$2.5bn in a green hydrogen facility in Peru. The company intends to build a large-scale green hydrogen production plant in the Arequipa region where the Peruvian government has approved the concession of 4,000-ha. In addition, Phelan Green Energy has obtained a 50-ha concession for the construction of a processing plant in the coastal port of Matarani (Peru); the company would leverage 1.8 GW of solar PV capacity to produce 80 kt/year of green hydrogen to be converted into 440 kt/year of ammonia. The company has also announced the discontinuation of its hydrogen projects in Chile, Egypt, and Spain.

Peru has announced the interest of several companies in investing in the installation of green hydrogen plants in Peru, in line with the country's ambition to become a leader in renewable energy.
