Hydrogen production could become cost competitive in the next five years, says MHPS MENA President

For hydrogen to take centre stage as a fuel source in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, Khalid Salem says the infrastructure to make, move, store and utilise large quantities of hydrogen requires significant investment. With significant investment, the President of Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) MENA, thinks hydrogen production could become cost competitive in the next five years.

“By providing a major new market for stored hydrogen, as well as the means to produce green hydrogen from renewable energy, the power generation industry can serve as the springboard to a new energy economy in the MENA region,” Salem told H2 View. “Ultimately, the hydrogen economy could transform many critical sectors in the region such as transportation, manufacturing, construction and more.”

Working in the hydrogen space for nearly 50 years providing hydrogen-fuelled gas turbines, MHPS plays a central role in power generation and is continuously working towards reducing environmental impact through technological innovation. The company is developing energy solutions and processes that will enable hydrogen’s transition from powering rockets to being the clean fuel that will drive a net zero carbon future.
