Envision Energy signs contract for 1.67 GW wind turbines for NEOM green H2 plant
Envision Energy has announced the signing of a contract to supply 1.67 GW wind turbines for NEOM Green Hydrogen Company, the world's largest utility-scale hydrogen plant powered entirely by renewable energy.
The hydrogen plant is coming up at Oxagon in the NEOM region of Saudi Arabia. Under the contract, Envision's 171-6.5MW wind turbines will be installed at the site, and are expected to be fully operational by 2026.
"This contract represents a significant milestone for both our companies and the industry at large," said Zhang Lei, CEO of Envision Energy. "We are proud to be associated with such an ambitious project that will pave the way for other companies to follow suit in pursuing sustainable initiatives."
"We are extremely excited to collaborate with Envision on this groundbreaking project," said Wolfgang Brand, Vice President of NEOM Green Hydrogen from Air Products. "This milestone demonstrates our shared commitment towards meeting sustainability objectives through project deliveries."
NEOM Green Hydrogen Company 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.
Further, this initiative 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, according to the developers.
David Edmondson, CEO of NEOM Green Hydrogen Company, said "Partnering with Envision Energy to deliver sustainable energy will enable NGHC to drive our 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."
As a global green technology company, Envision claims to promote wind and solar power as the "new coal", batteries and hydrogen fuel as the "new oil", the AIoT network as the "new grid", the net-zero industrial parks to the "new infrastructure", and to promote the construction and cultivation of green "new industry".
