The 2.2 GW Neom Green hydrogen megaproject will use one of its test electrolyzers to start supplying green hydrogen to an e-fuels facility run by Saudi Arabian State oil company Aramco. The facility will produce 35 barrels a day of synthetic gasoline from green hydrogen and captured carbon dioxide. The total estimated cost of the NEOM green hydrogen plant is USD 8.4 billion. Both the electrolyzer and e-fuels project will be located at the HIDC (Hydrogen and Innovation Development Centre).
Thyssenkrupp Nucera will supply a 20 MW alkaline electrolyzer for the said facility. The first of the 2.2 GW set is to be installed for a wider Neom green hydrogen and ammonia complex. The electrolyzer will supply eight tonnes of hydrogen per day. The 20 MW electrolyzer will be installed at HIDC for test purposes ahead of the installation of 2 GW electrolysis capacity at the nearby Neom hydrogen and ammonia complex which is scheduled to start operation by 2026.
Aramco expects to convert eight tonnes of hydrogen from HIDC to 12 tonnes of methanol per day using technology supplied by ThyssenKrupp. E-fuels were considered a controversial route for reducing transport emissions. While on paper they are carbon neutral or even carbon negative depending on the source of CO2. They have also been criticized as less efficient use of renewable electricity than powering battery electric vehicles.
The NEOM green hydrogen project is the world's largest utility-scale commercially based hydrogen facility powered entirely by renewable energy. An equal joint venture between NEOM, Air Products, and ACWA Power, the project is based on proven world-class technologies that will include innovative integration of a combined capacity of around four gigawatts of renewable energy. When commissioned in 2026 the project is expected to produce 600 tonnes per day of clean hydrogen. The project will mitigate the impact of 5 million metric tonnes of carbon emissions per year.
