Mubadala and Siemens Energy create a strategic partnership

Mubadala TRMEMubadala Investment Company (Mubadala) and Siemens Energy have signed a MoU to create a strategic partnership to drive investment and development of advanced technology, manufacture of equipment and green hydrogen and synthetic fuel production

The initial focus of activity will be in Abu Dhabi and it is intended this will be expanded to international markets over time.

Together with Masdar and other energy players in the Mubadala Group, the companies will work closely towards the following goals:

Utilising renewable energy to produce green hydrogen and synthetic fuels, providing clean and transportable energy to fuel new hydrogen-based ecosystems that are supplied from the UAE

  • Establish an Abu Dhabi-headquartered world-class player in the synthetic fuels sector
  • Jointly advance technology and drive down the costs of green hydrogen and synthetic fuels production
  • Enable Mubadala and Siemens Energy to access emerging hydrogen markets and create value for both parties

Commenting on the importance of the MoU Musabbeh Al Kaabi, CEO of the UAE Investments, Mubadala, said, “Through this strategic partnership, we expect to be able to leverage Abu Dhabi’s strong foundations for the production and sale of green hydrogen, prove a strong business case and attract investment for the development of new facilities, and establish Abu Dhabi as a reliable supplier of green hydrogen to global markets.” 

“This strategic partnership highlights the UAE’s visionary commitment towards developing a sustainable, green hydrogen economy,” said Dietmar Siersdorfer, managing director Siemens Energy Middle East .

This agreement is testament to the strategic Abu Dhabi Hydrogen Alliance formed between Mubadala, ADNOC and ADQ. The first initiative under this agreement and the broader Abu Dhabi Hydrogen Alliance will be the consideration of a demonstrator plant located at Masdar City, to be developed under a specific agreement involving Siemens Energy and Masdar, and a number of other key players in the technology, distribution, and end-use portions of the green hydrogen value chain.

Earlier this year, Mubadala Investment Company joined the Investor Group of the Hydrogen Council, reinforcing the company’s commitment to the emerging sector. The MoU is further proof of Mubadala’s confidence in the commercial and technological potential of the industry, as well as its capacity to accelerate the energy transition.
