Green hydrogen production technology has attracted so much attention that Saudi Arabia has aimed to come onstream with the world’s largest hydrogen project. The project will be constructed in a sustainable and smart city which is called NOEM. The project is to produce around 650 tons of hydrogen per day as well as 1.2 million tons of green ammonia each year.
The energy capacity required by the project is 4 GW. The total capacity of the project will be powered up by solar, wind coupled up with battery storage. According to PV-Tech, these energy sources will be integrated into a facility housing electrolysis units supplied by ThyssenKrupp, nitrogen production technology from Air Products, and green ammonia production units from Haldor Topsoe. The project will be completed by 2025.
When completed, it would save the world from over 3 million tons of CO2 emissions annually and eliminate smog-forming emissions and other pollutants that are equivalent to over 700,000 cars.
