Oman’s HYPORT Duqm green hydrogen project has signed a cooperation agreement with Uniper, which will see the energy company provide engineering services and negotiate an exclusive offtake agreement of green ammonia.
As previously reported, in the first phase, the HYPORT Duqm project will develop a 250 to 500 MW green hydrogen facility in the Special Economic Zone at Duqm. The facility is planned to come into operation in 2026 and is expected to respond to the global demand for green hydrogen and its derivatives.
Moreover, future expansion is foreseen across subsequent phase with the ambition of transforming the Special Economic Zone into a green Hydrogen hub in Oman and the wider region.
Luc Vandenbulcke, CEO DEME Group, said: ‘The DEME Group has always been at the forefront of sustainable solutions on a global scale. The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals are the compass to our present and future activities. With HYPORT Duqm, DEME is proud of taking the initiative in the global energy transition whereby green hydrogen has been identified as one of the major energy vectors.
‘This project will not only contribute to the challenging European ambitions to reduce CO2 and GHG emissions (as expressed in the Green Deal and Fit for 55 objectives), but will also strengthen Oman and the Sultanate’s visionary future.’
