Petrofac wins green hydrogen to ammonia study in Egypt (16.03.22)
Petrofac, one of the leading international service providers to the energy industry, has won its first new energies project in Egypt with an in-country subsidiary of Egypt-focused Mediterranean Energy Partners (MEP)
Green hydrogen is all set to play a critical role in the energy transition.
The project is an early-stage study assessing the feasibility of a new green hydrogen to ammonia facility that will target the production of 125,000 tonnes of green ammonia a year for export, using a mix of solar and wind energy.
Petrofac’s focus is on delivering the project and includes sizing the electrolysers and the feasibility of export facilities at Ain Sokhna Port on the Gulf of Suez.
Alex Haynes, head of business development, New Energy Services, Petrofac, said, “This award builds on our growing track record in the new energy space and recent green hydrogen projects in Australia, the UK, and other global locations. Egypt is moving fast to develop its natural advantages for green energy with its abundant solar and wind resources, coupled with its strategic geographic location for exporting zero carbon products, and Petrofac is thrilled to be supporting this growth.”
