Manufacturing News

Fortescue Future Industries has announced a new partnership with the government of Djibouti, signing a framework agreement providing the company access “to study the possibilities of renewable energy resources” in the East African nation.

According to a statement from FFI on Tuesday, the agreement was “a  major step towards the country’s first ever production of green hydrogen,” and that parties may negotiate on development and construction of green hydrogen facilities, depending on the results of FFI’s studies.

“This partnership with the Government of the Republic of Djibouti is a great step towards lowering emissions and driving green energy projects forward,” said Julie Shuttleworth, CEO of FFI, the clean energy division of Fortescue Metals Group.

“Djibouti’s solar, wind and geothermal sites as well as its access to port, makes it an attractive location for the production of green hydrogen.”

“Djibouti does not want to miss this historic moment when green hydrogen becomes the fuel for energy transition,” added Djibouti’s energy minister Yonis Ali Guedi.
