NEOM green hydrogen facility begins construction

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).

The project’s 2.2GW electrolysers will be fed by 4GW of renewable energy, and it aims to produce 1.2 million tonnes of green hydrogen-based ammonia annually.

“We now can show what’s really possible and we are confident to multiply that,” said Paddy Padmanathan, Vice-Chairman and CEO of ACWA Power, speaking on a panel at the Dii Desert Energy Leadership Summitin Cairo (November 3-5), announcing the start of the project’s construction.
