In fact, hydrogen had previously been declared at Sustainable Infrastructure Development Symposium South Africa (SIDSSA) in 2021 that hydrogen was a “Big Frontier” presenting key economic and energy growth for South Africa.

Through coordination in the Presidency; Sasol, the Northern Cape Provincial Government (NCPG) and the Gauteng Provincial Government (GPG) had launched several agreements at the SIDSSA 2021 which underpin their green hydrogen ambitions.

This includes a memorandum of agreement between the NCPG and Sasol, for Sasol to be the anchor developer of the planned Boegoebaai Green hydrogen Special Economic Zone pending a detailed feasibility study.
