Namibian Ports Authority (Namport) and Port of Antwerp-Bruges International have joined forces and signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to accelerate the hydrogen economy. The agreement was signed in the presence of King Philippe of Belgium, Dr Nangolo Mbumba, President of the Republic of Namibia, and Belgian Minister of Energy, Tinne Van der Straeten.

Together, the two port authorities aim to co-develop a new port site north of the existing Walvis Bay, Namibia, facilities, covering 1,300 hectares. This dedicated port area will serve as a hub for green industrial and logistical activities, storage, and bunkering operations of green fuels.

By embarking on this ambitious venture, Belgium and Namibia are aligning in vision and taking decisive actions to make a significant impact towards their green transition targets and strategies. Their mutual goal is to enable and derisk the hydrogen economy by developing the requisite common infrastructure in Walvis Bay.
