The first at-scale green hydrogen production facility at NEOM in northern Saudi Arabia has begun construction.
The large-scale facility, in which ACWA Power is partnering with Air Products, will despatch 600 tonnes of green hydrogen per day – enough to power 20,000 buses, or abate 5m tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
