Germany’s thyssenkrupp has been appointed by the UAE’s Helios Industry as technical adviser for a planned green hydrogen and green ammonia project in Abu Dhabi, the first green ammonia project in the UAE
thyssenkrupp will deliver a technical study for the planned green hydrogen and green ammonia scheme, which will involve the development of a water electrolysis plant as well as a facility for sustainable ammonia production. Both are planned to be located at the Kizad industrial development in Abu Dhabi.
The planned facility will integrate thyssenkrupp’s green hydrogen and green ammonia technologies with the first phase set to incorporate a multi-megawatt electrolyser plant and an initial ammonia production facility with a capacity of 20,000 tonnes per annum, with plans to increase this to 200,000 tonnes per annum.
M.K Saiyed, managing director of Helios, stated, “This project is another important milestone for in the UAE’s shift to a lower carbon renewable energy future. The new facility will produce green ammonia which is an energy carrier that enables easy transportation of renewable energy e.g. via ship. It can also be used as emission-free transport fuel and in the fertiliser and chemical industries.”
“We are very excited to work together with Helios to support the UAE on its way into a sustainable future. In doing so, we are building both on our innovative technology solutions as well as on thyssenkrupp’s regional and local footprint and long heritage as a partner to the region,” concluded Sami Pelknonen, CEO of thyssenkrupp’s Uhde business.
