Envision Energy, a large Chinese multinational headquartered in Shanghai that supplies wind turbines and energy management software, has signed a contract to supply 1.67 GW of wind turbines for Neom Green Hydrogen Co, believed to be the world's largest utility-scale hydrogen plant powered entirely by renewable energy. The megaplant is located at Oxagon, in Saudi Arabia's Neom special economic zone. Under the contract, Envision's 171-6.5 MW wind turbines will be installed and are expected to be fully operational by 2026.
Neom Green Hydrogen Co aims to produce carbon-free hydrogen using solely renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power to produce up to 600 tonnes per day of carbon-free hydrogen by the end of 2026. This initiative also serves as a critical step forward in promoting Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030 mission of reducing carbon emissions while simultaneously encouraging economic growth and job creation.
David Edmondson, CEO of Neom Green Hydrogen Co, said "Partnering with Envision Energy to deliver sustainable energy will enable NGHC to drive [its] vision of leading the global energy transition. We look forward to working closely as one team over the next few years during the project execution phase and subsequently into long term reliable operation."
