Egypt is set to bolster its hydrogen ecosystem with Scatec revealing a new green hydrogen and ammonia production facility that will be exported to lucrative international markets.
With the aligning of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZone), a study will be conducted that will look to implement hydrogen production facilities within the key trade route and provide Egypt with a basis to export hydrogen aboard.

This could be a key development for Egypt as it transitions to green power. As the production capacity increases within the nation, it is well situated to provide hydrogen to Europe and the Middle East.
This could provide the nation with more economic resources to continue its hydrogen production and become a powerhouse for the clean energy carrier.
Raymond Carlsen, CEO of Scatec, said, “We are excited to announce our participation in the development of a largescale green ammonia manufacturing facility in the SCZone, which is a key milestone in the implementation of Scatec’s Power-to-X strategy.
“We are very proud to be partnering again with the Egyptian government to turn Egypt into a green ammonia hub for export, leveraging the Suez Canal strategic location and the support of the country’s leadership for green initiatives.”
