U.K. - Cameroon Investment Forum Partnership to Realize Cameroons Resource Potential for Sustainable Prosperity May 7, 2014
Hydromine – Who we are Partnership for Cameroons Sustainable Prosperity Hydromine is a project and technology development company. Our areas of expertise are in natural resources, sustainable energy, and infrastructure. We are involved globally on a variety of value-add projects in the power generation, minerals, agriculture, and transportation sectors. Headquarters in New York 4 Europe, Middle East, and Africa regional offices: o Bern, Switzerland o Riyadh, Saudi Arabia o Yaoundé, Cameroon o Conakry, Guinea
Hydromine – Global Project Development Partnership for Cameroons Sustainable Prosperity Cameroon Mining - 1,600 km 2 bauxite concession with 3 million ton alumina refinery Energy - 1,200 MW and 300 MW hydroelectric dams on Sanaga River system Agriculture - 250,000 hectare food & biomass project in Adamawa Province Guinea Mining - Simandou region iron ore concession with on-site pig iron production Energy - Countrywide hydrokinetic program to install GW capacity Brazil Energy - Countrywide hydrokinetic program to install multiple GWs capacity Agriculture - Two 100,000 hectares food & biomass projects in Northeast Other ventures in additional 9 countries in North America, Europe, and Asia
Hydromine – Advanced Technology R&D Partnership for Cameroons Sustainable Prosperity Hydromines internal research and development has innovated 4 groundbreaking renewable energy technologies 1)Hydrokinetic Turbines o Harnesses natural flow of river or tidal current to produce 3 to 8 times more energy than comparable marine technologies with ability for flood control & irrigation 2)Wind Turbines o Highly aerodynamic ducted design generates 20 times more energy per acre than standard existing windmills at 1/3 rd the height and with significant cost savings 3)Energy Storage o Decoupled to accept various power sources like hydro, wind, solar, & biomass; energy storage does not degrade and is 15% more efficient than batteries 4)Electricity Generators o Heat recovery system to recycle energy, while 1/5 th to 1/10 th of the weight per megawatt of conventional generators with 30% less costly rare earths
Hydromine – Advanced Technology R&D Partnership for Cameroons Sustainable Prosperity Modular, containerized design allows rapid build-out for localized micro-grids, which will facilitate Cameroons rural electrification. 1) 3) 2) 4)
Hydromine – Mining in Cameroon Partnership for Cameroons Sustainable Prosperity Hydromine is developing world-class 1,600 km 2 high- grade gibbsite bauxite concession in the Adamawa Region. In addition, Hydromine, as minority shareholder with partners Hindalco of India and Emirates Aluminum of the United Arab Emirates (EMAL), and possibly others, under their Joint Venture Cameroon Alumina Limited, will erect and operate a 3 million tons per year smelter. A pre-feasibility has been completed as of last year, and the consortium is awaiting the grant of its Mining License. Hydromine is of the belief doubling the scale of the project can lower the cost per ton, thereby increasing efficiency and profitability, and is offering alternatives to its partners.
Hydromine – Hydropower in Cameroon Partnership for Cameroons Sustainable Prosperity In response to a Government request to add more value to Cameroon, Hydromine negotiated concessions for 1,200 MW Grand Eweng and 300 MW Mouséré hydroelectric dam sites. o Both sites have pre-feasibility study finished o Bankable feasibility study for Grand Eweng nearing completion Hydromines Grand Eweng recognized by African Development Bank as the largest private power development project in Africa and transformational for Cameroon and Central Africa. o Grand Eweng alone will double Cameroons installed electric capacity In addition to Hydromines original intent to utilize its ultra low-cost hydropower for CALs alumina smelter, Hydromine is in discussions to sell up to 50% of its dams electricity generation to Nigeria.
Hydromine – Hydropower in Cameroon Partnership for Cameroons Sustainable Prosperity Hydromine can tap Cameroons hydroelectricity potentialthe third highest in Africathrough the installation of our proprietary river turbines along the Sanaga River basin without the need to build further subsequent dams. Including our traditional hydropower projects, Hydromine could produce up to 3,000 MW new total capacity, thereby positioning Cameroon to be a major electricity exporter. Grand Eweng Mouséré
Hydromine – Agriculture in Cameroon Partnership for Cameroons Sustainable Prosperity Hydromine has been offered 250,000 hectares in Adamawa Province, which will be for agriculture and biomass production. The presence of crater lakes, due to a history of volcanism in the region, is a promising water storage option to facilitate irrigation. Hydromine will develop its agribusiness projects in partnership with premier foreign investors and renowned research institutes such as: o John Innes Centre of the U.K. o National Institute of Agricultural Botany (NIAB) of the U.K. o Brazilian Enterprise for Agricultural Research (EMBRAPA) of Brazil Hydromine is committed to maintaining 50% of production in country for Cameroonians, supporting national food security, job creation, and workforce training.
Hydromine – Agriculture in Cameroon Partnership for Cameroons Sustainable Prosperity Adamawa Province Cerrado Region Adamawa Province possesses savanna vegetation that closely resembles the Brazilian Cerrado region. Hydromines Brazilian agriculture contacts and experience will vastly advantage Cameroon.
