Orascom joins alliance to establish Egypt’s first hydrogen plant

November 25, 2021

Cairo-based Orascom Construction is joining the Green Hydrogen Consortium with Fertiglobe, Norway’s Scatec and the Sovereign Fund of Egypt to develop the first Egyptian green hydrogen production facility.

The facility will consist of 100-megawatt polymer electrolyte membrane electrolyzer, making it the world’s largest independently owned facility and the first in Egypt, Orascom said in the statement.

The green hydrogen produced will be supplied as feedstock for up to 90,000 tons of green ammonia to Fertiglobe’s EBIC ammonia production facility in Ain Al Sokhna, Egypt.

The company plans to execute the local works to showcase the green hydrogen facility during COP 27 in Egypt in November 2022.
