Chariot has announced the completion of the Feasibility Study for the large-scale green hydrogen project ‘Project Nour’ in Mauritania which has now been presented to the Government of Mauritania.

Project Nour is equally owned through a 50%/50% partnership between Chariot’s fully owned subsidiary Chariot Green Hydrogen and TE H2, a company co-owned by TotalEnergies and EREN Group, and is being developed with the support of Mauritania’s Ministry of Petroleum, Energy and Mines.

H.E. Minister Nani Chrougha of the Mauritanian Ministry of Petroleum, Mines and Energy, commented: “With the completion of the feasibility study of Project Nour, Mauritania has just taken an important step forward on the path to realising its green hydrogen ambitions. We are fully committed to the development of this sector, our aim is to be the largest producer and exporter of hydrogen on the African continent and we believe that Project Nour could support this objective.

We are pleased to have recently received considerable, high-level support from the European Commission, with Mauritania being selected as a key partner in the EU's Global Gateway initiative for future hydrogen exports and green steel production. This highlights opportunities that will be mutually beneficial in the long term. Our will is firm to continue to coordinate with our partners and encourage the industry through the development of major energy projects such as Nour.”

Laurent Coche Chariot Green Hydrogen CEO commented, “This Feasibility Study further corroborates how important this project stands to be within the context of the future green hydrogen market. Nour’s size and scale has the potential to have a material impact both as a domestic and export producer and we are 2 proud to have set the development along this path. With TE H2 and the Government we will continue to look at how best to bring it into production to maximise value in the near and long term for the benefit of all stakeholders.”
