Proton Ventures, in collaboration with Geldof, has announced its latest achievement – the award of a FEED contract for a first green ammonia terminal in Western Africa.

This project marked a significant step towards exporting green ammonia from Western Africa to the wider world. Proton Ventures’ proficiency in ammonia storage and handling solutions and Geldof’s proven track record in ammonia tanks are an ideal fit to take on this venture together.

The location in Western Africa is situated near major shipping trade-lanes, making it an ideal spot for the production of renewable energy. Furthermore, it holds enormous potential for competitive green electricity sourcing, making it an excellent choice for eco-friendly fuel development.

The green ammonia terminal project demonstrates dedication to environmentally friendly energy solutions. The upcoming terminal will not only store and distribute green ammonia, but also contribute to the development of clean energy infrastructure and create jobs in the region.

The project is intended to kick-off the entire ammonia supply chain in Western Africa. This new terminal will incorporate available technologies and systems to be the first zero-ammonia emissions terminal in the continent.

At its core, it will feature a full containment ammonia storage tank, ensuring both the safety and reliability of ammonia storage. Connected to an existing jetty, the terminal will simplify the loading and unloading processes, streamlining operations. Further facilitating distribution, the terminal will include dedicated rail and truck loading facilities. An efficient refrigeration system will be designed to manage the boil-off gas and load/unload ammonia gas carriers, providing independent operations. High flow rate pumps and utilities will support the ammonia handling processes, while an emergency-only flare system for the safe disposal of gases will guarantee the highest safety measures and lowest emissions. Dedicated fire prevention water systems are integral to ensuring the safety of personnel and assets, and a modern control building, along with necessary instrument rooms, will be established to effectively monitor and manage the terminal’s operations.

As Proton Ventures move forward with the development of the green ammonia terminal in collaboration with its client and Geldof, it is committed to promoting sustainability and clean energy. The company looks forward to the prospects the project holds and aims to keep achieving new milestones in the green energy sector.
