Dubai’s Enoc Group and Japanese heavy-industry manufacturer IHI Corporation signed a Memorandum of Understanding to explore establishing a low-carbon hydrogen and low-carbon ammonia supply chain in the UAE.
The move is aligned with the UAE’s overall efforts to diversify its energy sources to transition into a clean energy model for the world to emulate.
The produced fuel will be exported to Japan and supplied within the UAE and across the region for bunkering and other purposes.
As part of the agreement, both parties will execute corresponding studies in consecutive phases for green ammonia production in the UAE, including pre-feasibility and feasibility studies for the first-of-its-kind full-scale production plant, pre-FEED (Front End Engineering Design) and FEED studies for the demonstration plant, and pre-FEED and FEED for the full-scale production plant.
The agreement was signed by Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO, Enoc, and Jun Kobayashi, Executive Officer, General Manager of Solution & Business Development Headquarters of IHI Corporation.
Al Falasi said, “At Enoc, we continue to explore partnerships that safeguard the future for generations to come. Our collaboration with IHI Corporation demonstrates our commitment to supporting the UAE’s energy transition efforts whilst advancing Dubai’s Clean Energy Strategy 2050. We are excited to work with IHI Corporation to explore the potential of green ammonia production in the UAE.”
