Orascom Construction PLC announced that it has joined the Green Hydrogen Consortium with Fertiglobe, Scatecm and The Sovereign Fund of Egypt to develop Egypt’s first green hydrogen production facility.

The production facility will be equipped with a 100 MW PEM (Polymer Electrolyte Membrane) electrolyzer, making it the world’s largest independently owned facility and the first in Egypt, the company said in a statement.

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

It is worth noting Orascom Construction will execute the local works in order to showcase the green hydrogen facility during COP 27 in Egypt.
