Black & Veatch said that it is in talks with the developer at Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in Duqm, Oman, for a huge clean energy project.
Black & Veatch is a leading global engineering, consulting, and construction conglomerate in the global renewable and green hydrogen space headquartered in the US.
Recently, the Public Authority for SEZ and Free Zones (OPAZ), which supervises the kingdom’s SEZs and OPAZ developments, signed an agreement for a world-scale Green Hydrogen & Green Ammonia project promoted by ACME Group (India’s largest solar power developer.)
The plant will be an integrated facility using 3 GWp of solar and 0.5 GWp of wind energy to produce 2,400 TPD of green ammonia with an annual production of approx. 0.9 million tons.
“Black & Veatch is very pleased to be in discussion with ACME in supporting the company’s green hydrogen and ammonia project in Oman. Black & Veatch is finalizing its engagement plan with ACME for the various stages of the project,” a spokesperson of the company said.
Collaborating with ACME Group as its partner in the Oman venture is the Oman Company for the Development of SEZ at Duqm SAOC (Tatweer), a wholly-owned subsidiary of OPAZ. The two sides had signed an MoU to this effect in March.
