General – Green Hydrogen
DEME and energy group OQ have signed a Project Development Agreement with Hydrom for the pioneering HYPORT Duqm project.
The project will produce green hydrogen and green ammonia.
Hydrom, orchestrating Oman’s national interest in green hydrogen, is fully owned by Energy Development OMAN and regulated by the Ministry of Energy and Minerals.
HYPORT Duqm is being developed by DEME Concessions and OQ on an area of 150 square km. The area, which is part of the Special Economic Zone at Duqm, is designed to produce wind power and solar energy with a combined renewable power capacity of around 1.3 GW in Phase 1 and potentially over 2.7 GW when Phase 2 is realised.
The first phase of the project is set to produce approximately 330,000 tonnes of green ammonia and more than 650,000 tonnes during the second phase.
The agreement was signed on behalf of the HYPORT Coordination Company by Najla bint Zuhair Al-Jamali, Chief Executive of Alternative Energy at OQ, and Martin D’Uva, Managing Director of DEME Concessions.
