The first set of wind turbines, successfully delivered on October 8, is now en route via road to the Wind Garden site near the Gulf of Aqaba. There, they will be meticulously assembled and installed. This delivery marks a crucial step in the development of NGHC’s mega project, which aims to revolutionize clean energy production.
Anticipating further progress, NGHC plans to receive additional turbines by year-end. The Wind Garden, when complete, will feature over 250 turbines, directly powering the green hydrogen plant through a dedicated electricity transmission grid.
Situated in Oxagon, NEOM’s reimagined industrial city, NGHC’s facility will seamlessly integrate up to 4 gigawatts of solar and wind energy. This colossal capacity will yield a remarkable 600 tonnes of carbon-free hydrogen daily.
By 2026, once the NEOM plant is fully operational, 100 percent of the green hydrogen produced will be available for global export in the form of green ammonia, thanks to an exclusive long-term agreement with Air Products.
David R. Edmondson, Chief Executive Officer of NGHC, expressed enthusiasm about the project’s trajectory. He stated, “This initial equipment delivery is the first in a series of major milestones we anticipate over the coming year. Our commitment to green hydrogen remains unwavering, and we are on track to commence green hydrogen exports by 2026. This achievement not only positions NGHC as a leader in sustainable energy but also propels Saudi Arabia and the broader region toward a cleaner, more resilient energy future.
