This will be the first green ammonia plant in the country, according to the local government of Campeche, which added that the ammonia produced would be exported to Germany for use in the fertiliser industry.

Power will be provided through 208MW of solar PV and 415MW of onshore wind with the green ammonia plant expected to start operations in 2027.

Hy2gen also signed a cooperation agreement for further feasibility studies of the Marengo project, with local representatives present.

Cyril Dufau-Sansot, CEO of Hy2gen, said: “For Marengo, everyone involved is pulling in the same direction. The cooperation with the local authorities, the governor and also the preliminary work with (German development agency) GIZ were always characterised by a sustainable pioneering spirit – progressive thinking and action is what it takes to achieve a climate-neutral future.”
