Projects under development

Hyphen Technical is actively pursuing projects in several industry sectors. These include the following actively developed projects:

Green Locomotive Conversion

Green Steel Production

Green Mining Equipment and Mineral Refining

Green Hydrogen Power and Utility Stations

GH2 Dual Fuel Locomotive pilot project - Namibia

A consortium, lead by Hyphen Technical, proposed a green hydrogen locomotive pilot project for Namibian Railways, which was awarded Namibian and German government grant funding on 16 August 2022. In partnership with CMB.TECH, TransNamib, Traxtion and University of Namibia, the project will showcase the conversion of the first hydrogen powered train in Africa, using dual-fuel hydrogen combustion technology and a pioneering hydrogen fuel tender car. Once the pilot has been completed within the next 18 months, plans will be finalised to roll-out this technology to the rest of the Namibian fleet of roughly 40 locomotives and thereafter to the rest of the Sub-Saharan African locomotive fleets.

Hyphen Hydrogen - SCDI hydrogen Project - Namibia

Our sister company, Namibian registered Hyphen Hydrogen Energy, successfully tendered for and has been awarded preferred bidder status for the development of Namibia’s first gigawatt-scale vertically integrated green hydrogen project near Lüderitz, Namibia, as part of the Southern Corridor Development Initiative (SCDI).  The US$10 billion project, to be developed in phases, is targeting 300,000 tons of green H2 production from 5GW of renewables (wind and solar) and 3GW of electrolyser capacity.  The green H2 will be converted into green ammonia to supply international and regional customers.

Hydrogen Transport Corridors in Southern Africa

Hyphen Technical maintains a systems view on hydrogen, seeking the best combination of multi-modal opportunities combined with multi-use cases for hydrogen off-take. We have developed a road map for the development of various corridors in Southern Africa, that will see the introduction of GH2 as a primary driving fuel for these corridors where it makes sense. This work will link industrial and economic activity to the sustainable transportation options for the identified corridors.
