NEOM Green Hydrogen Complex

ANEOM Green Hydrogen Company Logon equal production joint venture of ACWA Power, Air Products and NEOM incorporated in August 2021, NEOM Green Hydrogen Company (NGHC) is establishing the world’s largest green-hydrogen-based ammonia production facility run on renewable energy. Supporting Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030, this mega-plant will produce up to 600 tons per day of carbon-free hydrogen in the form of green-ammonia as a cost-effective solution for transportation globally.

This project is based on proven technologies. Novel aspects include the integration of these technologies, particularly at this scale and utilizing ammonia to transport the hydrogen for the mobility market globally. Producing and exporting green ammonia to global markets, this project will save the world almost five million metric tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year compared to diesel trucks or buses.

Air Products is the primary EPC contractor and will be the exclusive off-taker of the green ammonia and intends to transport it around the world to be dissociated to produce green hydrogen for the transportation market.

How It Works

Green hydrogen is produced by electrolysis of water using only renewable energies – solar and wind. Economical green hydrogen production is highly dependent on the cost of electricity. The Kingdom is an ideal location for the NGHC megaproject driven by its abundant sun and wind. Air Products will be the exclusive off-taker of the green products produced at the facility, and NGHC’s jetty will be used for the direct transfer of green ammonia to tanker ships, close to global shipping lanes at the crossroads of world distribution.

We are honored and proud to partner with ACWA Power and NEOM and use proven technologies to make the world’s dream of 100% green energy a reality. Harnessing the unique profile of NEOM’s sun and wind to convert water to hydrogen, this project will yield a totally clean source of energy on a massive scale and will save the world about five million tons of CO2 emissions annually.
