Renewable energy firm Casa dos Ventos and Comerc Eficiência have signed a partnership with the TransHydrogen Alliance (THA) to create new supply chains for the energy transition of European countries.
The agreement is to enable the export of green ammonia produced in the Industrial and Port Complex of Pecém (CIPP), in Ceará.
The plant is to be built on a 60-hectare site with a capacity of up to 2.4 GW of electrolysis, producing 960 tons of hydrogen per day, and with all phases implemented, will enable the production of 2.2 million tons of ammonia per year.
The parties signed a memorandum of understanding to jointly develop a viable partnership targeting production of the first phase for export to Europe through the Port of Rotterdam, in the Netherlands in 2026.
“We want to use the abundant renewable resources in Ceará and neighbouring states to expand our low carbon energy solutions abroad,” said Lucas Araripe, CEO at Casa dos Ventos.
“We are joining forces with a group of companies that will be able to contribute to the technological development of the project and with a portfolio of international clients.”
The company and Comerc have already signed a pre-contract with the CIPP.
“The essence of Comerc is the energy transition, combining economy, excellence, and sustainability in all its solutions. And together with Casa dos Ventos and THA, through green hydrogen and ammonia, we take an important step towards decarbonization, both nationally and globally,” added Marcel Haratz, president of Comerc Eficiência.
