State-backed energy holding company Abu Dhabi National Energy Company PJSC (TAQA) and port operator Abu Dhabi Ports revealed plans to develop an industrial scale green hydrogen to ammonia export project in Abu Dhabi.
As explained, the partnership would be a significant step towards placing Abu Dhabi at the heart of a new emerging global market for green energy.
Under a memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed on 7 July, the duo will work together on developing proposals for a green ammonia export facility to be based in Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD). The new plant would be fuelled by hydrogen produced by an electrolyzer facility paired with a 2 GW solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant.
The green hydrogen would be turned into liquid ammonia to supply ships converted to use ammonia as a bunker fuel and for export from Abu Dhabi Ports via specialized gas carriers. Ammonia, which is relatively easier to transport than pure hydrogen, has a number of industrial uses and can also be easily turned back into hydrogen, TAQA explained.
