Ohmium to supply 343 MW of green H2 for ammonia to Tarafert
Ohmium International, Inc. has announced that it has signed an agreement to provide 343 megawatts of green hydrogen electrolyzers to Tarafert, the developer of large-scale urea fertilizer and green ammonia production facility in Mexico.
Electrolyzer delivery will happen over three tranches, with the first 69 megawatts to be delivered in 2025 on schedule for Tarafert's project completion. The green hydrogen from the project will enable the production of up to 200,000 metric tonnes per year of green ammonia.
"Ammonia shortages this year have shown the importance of countries developing their product that doesn't rely on fossil fuels. The Tarafert project is among the most ambitious in the world and we're excited to be a part of it," said Arne Ballantine, CEO of Ohmium International.
"For too long, ammonia production has been an energy-intensive process that produced tonnes of greenhouse gas. Green hydrogen can reduce those carbon emissions to zero."
"Utilizing green hydrogen to produce ammonia is a major advantage for our project. Green hydrogen means our ammonia will no longer be subject to the volatile price spikes and pollution inherent in fossil fuel use," said Jean Perarnaud, CEO of Tarafert. "Ohmium's leading edge, cost-effective, modular PEM technology is the perfect choice for this project, it can scale rapidly and efficiently to support the production expansion in phases."
