Enegix Energy to Build $5.4 Billion Green Hydrogen Facility in Brazil

1
Enegix Energy Pte Ltd has unveiled the Base One green hydrogen project in cooperation with the State Government of Ceará, an investment of $5.4 billion. Under the terms of the MoU signed on February 19 with the state governor Camilo Santana, Enegix will set up a  green hydrogen plant that will produce over 600 million kg of green hydrogen per year from already contracted 3.4GW of combined baseload wind and solar power through a partnership with Enerwind.

Base One will be established in the state of Ceará, northeast of Brazil and will provide a strategic location for Enegix’s renewable hydrogen production with direct access to all major international markets via ocean freight. 500 hectares of commercial land has been scoped in the Port of Pecém, a world-class deep sea port with established infrastructure and access to the required quantities of water - to enable the electrolysis process to separate hydrogen and oxygen elements.

Enegix’s planned next-generation facility will be run completely using renewable energy with zero emissions and will harness the great renewable energy potential that Ceará has available with solar and onshore and offshore wind to be realised allowing Base One to be expanded to over 100GW to meet global demand.

Wesley Cooke, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Energix, said, “Our partnership with the Ceará State Government is a major milestone for the company. Base One will turn Ceará into a major hydrogen export location and establish Enegix as a global renewable power producer aligning with our vision and strategy to replace expensive, high emission power grids with renewable, baseload, and cost-effective zero-carbon grids. Through this partnership, we plan to create a new model of sustainable energy for the world’s fast-growing population while reducing dependency and cutting end-user costs on high carbon-emitting fuel sources like diesel.”

Enegix’s Base One facility is expected to create thousands of jobs during the construction phase and will allow for the employment of hundreds of full-time operational staff to manage the facility, with far-reaching, positive social benefits to the local community and the state. The planned next-generation facility will be run completely using renewable energy with zero emissions.

“For us, hydrogen represents a version of the future we aspire to. A new way to power our lives without polluting and destroying what matters most, our home, the one we all share and must protect. A hydrogen economy is possible now, we must take the initiative and build it so that everyone can benefit from the universe's most abundant element.” says Cooke.

The project is expected to take 3-4 years to build. Enegix has signed a MoU with a leading international engineering firm and technical consultant to undertake a feasibility study, and will soon start the process of obtaining environmental and social licenses.
