    NEOM plant to produce 600 tonnes of green hydrogen per day

    May 25, 2023 - TradeArabia


      NEOM, a sustainable development coming up in northwest Saudi Arabia, has outlined a clear path towards the at-scale production of green hydrogen in NEOM for the global market.

      The NEOM Green Hydrogen Company (NGHC) facility being built in Oxagon is set to be the world's largest commercial-scale green hydrogen production facility in the world. Once operational in 2026, it will produce an initial 600 tonnes of green hydrogen per day, which will be available for global export, saving as much as 5 million tons of CO2 emissions per year.

      During the announcement of its recent financial close, NGHC - an equal joint venture between NEOM, Acwa Power and Air Products - highlighted a total of SR22.9 billion of financing secured from 23 financial institutions, including Saudi Industrial Development Fund (SIDF), National Infrastructure Fund (NIF), as well as local and international banks. This funding is not only a critical milestone on the way towards delivering NGHC's global ambitions, but a vote of confidence from partners and financiers in NEOM as an incubator for renewable energy solutions and a hub for carbon-conscious investment.

      Nadhmi Al-Nasr, Chief Executive Officer, NEOM and Chairman, NEOM Green Hydrogen Company, said: "NEOM is committed to addressing global challenges, which includes minimising carbon emissions through the advancement of clean energy solutions such as Green Hydrogen. Along with our partners Air Products and Acwa Power, NEOM is investing in technology and industry innovations that will support a global transition to clean and sustainable energy. Through this work, we will create jobs, attract and develop local and international talent, as well as help drive economic diversification in the Kingdom."

      Oxagon, the home of advanced and clean industries in NEOM, was selected as the location for NGHC due to its natural resources, strategic coastal location and the opportunity for industrial efficiency as a result of proximity to supporting cutting-edge facilities and future tenants based there.

      With NGHC as the renewable energy flagship tenant within the manufacturing eco-system being developed at Oxagon, immediate downstream and upstream localization opportunities are already emerging. NEOM's Hydrogen Innovation and Development Center (HIDC) is already located in Oxagon's research and innovation district. Announced in 2022, HIDC seeks to accelerate lab-to-market solutions and business development across the spectrum of hydrogen, green fuel production, utilization, and transport.

      Land preparation was completed and handed over by NEOM to NGHC. Construction of the plant is well underway with the first teams from NGHC already on-ground - making them the first tenant workforce in Oxagon.

      Electricity generation using fossil fuels is the largest worldwide contributor to carbon emissions and global warming, and NGHC's volume of green hydrogen could directly cut carbon emissions by up to 5 million tons of CO2 per year, as well as support indirect decarbonization of a range of industries and sectors. Reports suggest that green hydrogen could make up 12% of the global energy mix and the regional green hydrogen industry worth up to SR750 billion by 2050. - TradeArabia News Service
