The signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) comes as an important step for FFI’s Project Lynx, which is planned to be developed in and around the Stephenville, St. George’s and Channel-Port Aux Basques areas, which anticipates to see between 700,000 and 900,000 tonnes of green ammonia produced annually.

H2 View understands the MoU offers a framework to facilitate discussions and planning to evaluate the potential of hydrogen production in the region for export to Europe.

Together, FFI and MFN will assess commercial viability, cooperate on the development and operation of the wind energy to green hydrogen project in the province.

Chief Mi’sel Joe of the Miawpukek First Nation, said, “We are very pleased with FFI’s approach to development in Newfoundland.

“We have been stewards of this land since the beginning of time and using renewable energy to produce green hydrogen and green ammonia to get the world to net carbon zero aligns with our values as a nation. We fully support this strategic partnership.”

The latest agreement follows on from FFI revealing it had signed agreements with three Canadian Indigenous Nations within Canada to support the growing demand for hydrogen.
