Svevind plans 45GW wind- and solar-to-green hydrogen


Svevind plans 45GW wind- and solar-to-green hydrogen

The German developer has gained government backing for 45GW of renewables and 30GW of electrolysers in western and central Kazakhstan - Windpowermonthly

Svevind has signed a memorandum of understanding with Kazakhstan’s government investment agency, for 45GW of wind and solar PV capacity that would power 30GW of electrolysers.

If built, it would become the world’s largest green hydrogen facility.

The project’s costs are unclear, as is the wind / solar split and its likely commissioning date.

The generating capacity is planned for sites in the steppe areas of western and central Kazakhstan.

The associated electrolysers could produce about three million tonnes of green hydrogen annually, for export to the Eurasian market, or for local use in the manufacture of ammonia, steel or aluminium, the developer explained.

Svevind has a history of delivering supersized onshore wind projects, having developed and built the Markbygden project in Sweden.

It recently reached the milestone of having 1GW operational there, with a further 1.5GW under construction.
