DEME develops green hydrogen plant in Port of Duqm

Belgium's DEME Concessions, which specialises in dredging and land reclamation, fluvial and marine aggregates, project development, infrastructure marine, and environmental solutions, has entered an agreement with its Omani partners to develop a green hydrogen plant in Duqm, Oman.

Oman's Port of Duqm offers cheap renewable energy, and large, accessible sites, on-and offshore, making it an ideal location for operations.

The facility is estimated to significantly contribute towards the decarbonisation of the sultanate's regional chemical industry, as well as provide green hydrogen and/or its derivatives to Europe-based customers.

The electrolyser capacity for Phase 1 is estimated between 250 and 500MW. Phase 1 will comprise an in-depth feasibility study, which will be followed by detailed design and engineering, further project development, and finalisation of offtake routes and financing. 

A final investment decision for the project is expected during 2021.
