During the meeting with the management of Svevind Energy Group, the parties addressed matters related to the preparatory phases of a "green" hydrogen production project in the Mangistau region.

President was briefed on the initiation of preliminary design and survey work (Pre-FEED) as part of the Investment Agreement, signed during the visit of President of the European Council Charles Michel to Kazakhstan last year.

This ambitious project encompasses the construction and operation of a desalination plant, a 40 GW renewable energy facility (utilizing wind and solar power), and a 20 GW water electrolysis plant. The combined annual production capacity is projected to reach 2 million tonnes of green hydrogen or 11 million tonnes of green ammonia. The initial investment amount exceeds €50 billion.

Wolfgang Kropp noted that the project documentation is set to be finalized by 2026. Infrastructure construction is scheduled to start in 2027, with commissioning expected in 2032.

President Kasym-Jomart Tokayev emphasized the strategic significance of the timely implementation of the Hyrasia One project for Kazakhstan. He expressed his confidence that this project will become a flagship initiative for advancing renewable energy in the country and will make a substantial contribution to achieving the goal of carbon neutrality.
