CWP Global has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Mauritian government to build a Power-to-X project with an electrolysis capacity of 30GW. The green hydrogen project will cost the partners €32 billion and will be the largest of its kind in the world. The project, named AMAN will be built on a desert site measuring 8,500 kilometres. AMAN is expected to have transformative effect on the Mauritian economy by generating jobs, providing access to inexpensive electricity and water and boost export trade in utilities.

Ørsted established an important milestone recently by installing the first turbine at its Hornsea Two offshore wind farm off the coast of Greater Manchester. Hornsea Two is located 89 kilometres from Hornsea One, currently the world’s largest offshore wind farm with a capacity of 1.2GW. Once Hornsea Two is ready for operations in 2022, it will generate up to 1.4GW clean energy, enough to power over 1.3 million homes in the UK, and all homes in the Greater Manchester area.

Germany and Norway announced the successful completion of an ambitious project to connect the two countries via a submarine cable to exchange renewable energy. Called NordLink, it is currently one of the longest submarine cables in the world: it starts at Tonstad, a town in southern Norway and terminates at Wilster in northern Germany, covering a distance of 623 kilometres. NordLink will facilitate the exchange of wind and solar energy from Germany with hydroelectric power from Norway. This will also help the two countries strengthen the reliability of renewable energy and overcome gaps in supply caused due to varying levels of sunshine, wind and rain. NordLink is the first direct power connection between Germany and Norway. The high-voltage DC link enables the exchange of 1,400 megawatts.
