Port of Antwerp-Bruges Plans to Build €250M Hydrogen and Ammonia Export Terminal in Namibia

The Port of Antwerp-Bruges has unveiled plans to construct a €250 million hydrogen and ammonia export terminal at Namibia’s Port of Walvis Bay within the next three to five years.

The proposed storage, bunkering, and export facility will be a collaborative effort between the Port of Antwerp-Bruges and the state-owned Namibian Ports Authority (Namport). Additionally, discussions are underway for a subsidiary of shipping firm MSC to operate the terminal, indicating strong industry interest and support.

In another groundbreaking initiative, the Port of Antwerp-Bruges, along with Cleanergy and Namport, aims to introduce Africa’s first dual-fuel hydrogen-powered ship. This multifunctional port utility vessel underscores the commitment to innovative and sustainable maritime solutions.

Cleanergy, in collaboration with local partners, is progressing with the development of Namibia’s first integrated hydrogen production and refueling site at the Port of Walvis Bay. The completion of this facility by the end of this year marks a significant milestone in the region’s hydrogen infrastructure development.

With the hydrogen and ammonia export terminal potentially eligible for EU funding, there is optimism surrounding the financial viability of the project. Moreover, Namibia’s status as a potential exporter of green hydrogen and ammonia to Europe aligns with broader sustainability goals and renewable energy initiatives.
