Abu Dhabi: CO2-Free Ammonia Thyssenkrupp to Conduct Study for First Green Hydrogen-Ammonia Plant in Abu Dhabi
The Emirati company Helios plans to build the Gulf state's first commercial plant for CO2-free ammonia in Abu Dhabi. Engineering planning for the green hydrogen-ammonia project has been entrusted to Thyssenkrupp.
Essen/Germany — Helios plans to build the first green ammonia plant in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Thyssenkrupp has been brought on board for the planning. The engineering company has been commissioned to carry out a technical study for the green hydrogen and green ammonia project. A water electrolysis plant and a plant for sustainable ammonia production based on Thyssenkrupp technology are to be built in Kizad in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The plant will integrate Thyssenkrupp's green hydrogen and green ammonia technologies into a green value chain. The first phase will include a multi-megawatt electrolyzer plant and an ammonia production plant with a capacity of 20,000 tons per year, to be increased to 200,000 tons per year in the next step.
M. K. Saiyed, Managing Director of Helios: “This project is another important milestone for in the UAE’s shift to a lower carbon renewable energy future. The new facility will produce green ammonia which is an energy carrier that enables easy transportation of renewable energy e.g. via ship. It can also be used as emission-free transport fuel and in the fertiliser and chemical industries.”
