In support of South Africa’s transition to a low-carbon economy, Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) has issued a request for information (RFI) for the development of a terminal facility and related facilities for hydrogen initiatives at its commercial seaports.

The RFI assesses market interest in developing, designing, building, financing, operating and maintaining an import and export terminal for hydrogen initiatives.

This includes green hydrogen, green ammonia, green methanol and/or grey hydrogen at the ports of Cape Town, Durban, East London, Mossel Bay, Ngqura, Port Elizabeth and Saldanha Bay.

“The introduction of this initiative is part of TNPA’s strategic projects that enable a just transition, making it a step closer to enabling greener shipping and decarbonisation of the company’s marine fleet in order to remain globally competitive,” says TNPA Renewable Energy sector specialist Amanda Makgoga.

The project is also in line with the Hydrogen Society Roadmap for South Africa, approved by National Cabinet in 2021.

It also supports the National Development Plan 2030, which advocates for increased investment in an energy sector that is both economically inclusive and environmentally sustainable.

The deadline for response to the RFI is 16:00 on January 31.
