US-based H2-Industries Signs MoU for $1.4bn Waste-to-Hydrogen Project

US-based H2-Industries has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Oman’s Public Establishment for Industrial Estates (Madayn) to develop a $1.4bn waste-to-hydrogen plant in Oman.


Technical and engineering consultancy firm Worley has been appointed to provide a study for the planned 25 GW green hydrogen project in Oman.


Worley was appointed by Green Energy Oman, a consortium of state energy firm OQ, Hong Kong-based Intercontinental Energy and Kuwait’s Enertech, to develop the 25 GW green hydrogen scheme.


The study will identify opportunities to enhance value from the expected 10-year development period of the project. The areas to be included in the study will include employment and development of Omani nationals and manufacturing opportunities for local firms across the supply chain.


“Hydrogen has the potential to decarbonize hard-to-abate sectors," said Hans Dieter Hermes, Vice President of Clean Hydrogen at Worley. “This project means Oman can use its renewable energy potential to produce green hydrogen and green ammonia for itself and for export."


The Green Energy Oman consortium began undertaking a solar and wind monitoring study for the project in 2019, and has identified an area in the central Al-Wusta governorate that has significant solar radiation during the day and strong wind at night to enable the development of both solar and wind capacity for the green hydrogen scheme.
