NEOM Green Hydrogen Company’s (NGHC) board announced last Sunday (May 8) the appointment of David Edmondson as Chief Executive Officer of the company.
Edmondson, an Air Products veteran, whose career at the company has span for more than 34 years, has experience of leadership roles in engineering and global gases globally.
NGHC is a joint venture between NEOM, ACWA Power and Air Products to build a world-scale, green-hydrogen-based ammonia production facility powered by renewable energy in the northwest of Saudi Arabia.
NGHC will establish the green hydrogen facility, which will be the first of several similar plants expected to make it a hub for green hydrogen production going onstream in 2026. NEOM will use the green hydrogen it produces to fuel clean, autonomous electric vehicles, among other solutions.
Nadhmi Al-Nasr, CEO at NEOM and Chairman of NEOM Green Hydrogen Company, said, “The appointment of David Edmondson as NGHC’s CEO is a natural follow-up to our recent agreement to build the world’s largest green hydrogen plant, which will produce 1.2 million tonnes of hydrogen per year.
“We aim to revolutionising the global energy market and creating a circular economy as we redefine the parameters of sustainable living and abundant resource production, all in harmony with nature.”
