Pennsylvania-headquartered Air Products has awarded thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers a contract to supply over 2 GW electrolysis plant for one of the world’s largest green hydrogen projects at NEOM in Saudi Arabia.
 
As per the scope of the contract, thyssenkrupp would engineer, procure and fabricate the plant based on their large-scale 20 MW alkaline water electrolysis module.
 
Upon commissioning, the project partners i.e. NEOM, ACWA Power and Air Products, (NEOM Green Hydrogen Company) – will operate the facility, which will produce hydrogen to be synthesized into carbon-free ammonia for export exclusively by Air Products to global markets. Engineering and procurement activities have been initiated, and the start of production is scheduled for 2026.
 
In July last year, Air Products, together with ACWA Power and NEOM, announced the signing of an agreement for a world-scale green hydrogen-based ammonia production facility powered by renewable energy.
 
thyssenkrupp was selected by its strategic partner Air Products early in the project as a technology supplier and has worked intensively on early engineering and project development.
 
Commenting on the development, Dr. Samir J. Serhan, Chief Operating Officer at Air Products, said “This project milestone with thyssenkrupp furthers our strong progress at NEOM to deliver carbon-free hydrogen on a massive scale in the Kingdom and for the world. The development and execution of this innovative megaproject is one of many required to drive a successful energy transition, and we look forward to continuing to develop, build, own and operate facilities that help address the world’s significant energy and environmental challenges. This project is the kickoff to become a frontrunner in the green hydrogen economy.”
 
“As a world market leader in electrolysis, we bring in two decisive factors to realize such gigawatt projects: With our large-scale standard module size and gigawatt cell manufacturing capacity per year together with our Joint Venture partner De Nora, we are able to deliver large capacity projects today,” said Denis Krude, CEO of thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers.
 
Krude further added “with this gigawatt project, we are committed to investing into ramping up our manufacturing capacities further. We also aim for a strong local setup which is key to delivering customized service solutions throughout the entire plant life-cycle and enables our strategic partner in their vision to become a global decarbonization pioneer.”
