Egypt And Norway Cooperates In Renewable Energy Sector
Egypt and Norway signed agreements for various projects to cooperate in the renewable energy sector in Cairo. In November 2022, Egypt will host the 27th U.N. Climate Change Conference in the Red Sea resort. Both the countries collaborated on green hydrogen, renewable energy, and others and will focus on building infrastructure in Africa. Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry, Prime Minister Mustafa Madbouly, representatives of Egypt’s Sovereign Fund, the Norwegian Norfund, and Scatec were also present during the signing ceremony.
Hydrogen Rise And Jindal Shadeed Iron & Steel To Use Green Hydrogen
Hydrogen Rise, Jindal Shadeed Iron & Steel, and SOHAR Port and Freezone have signed an agreement to evaluate the development of the first green hydrogen plant at Sohar, which will decarbonize the steel production process at Jindal Shadeed´s steel manufacturing plant. Together, the partners will assess the potential to produce steel in a completely sustainable manner to reduce emissions, lower the complex’s carbon footprint and preserve gas reserves for other applications across the country. After conducting techno-economic feasibility studies, the first phase will include the operation of a 35MW electrolyzer capacity by mid-2024, paired with a solar renewable energy plant. Following this first phase, an upscaling path to a potential 350 MW electrolysis capacity will be evaluated.
Worley To Support Green Energy Oman Project
Worley is providing concept feasibility study services to develop and challenge Green Energy Oman (GEO)’s defined green hydrogen energy project. This includes optimizing around 25 GW of wind and solar generation, transforming this renewable energy through electrolysis into green hydrogen, as well as the production, storage, and export of green ammonia. The GEO project consortium comprises OQ – the Sultanate of Oman’s global integrated energy company, InterContinental Energy (ICE) – the leading dedicated green fuels developer, and EnerTech (ETC) – a Kuwait government-backed clean energy investor and developer.
LONGi To Supply Hi-MO 5 Modules To Red Sea Project
LONGi has announced that it has won a contract to supply 406MW of its Hi-MO 5 bifacial modules to SEPCOIII Electric Power Construction Co., Ltd. for Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea Project. Located on the Kingdom’s west coast, the project will be completely powered by renewable energy on a scale not previously achieved anywhere in the world, with energy to be generated via solar panels and wind turbines to meet the initial demand of 210MW, with further expansion planned. The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC), the developer behind what is viewed as the world’s most ambitious regenerative tourism project, awarded its highest-value contract to date to a consortium led by ACWA Power to design, build, operate and transfer the project’s utilities infrastructure, generating up to 650,000 MWh of CO₂ free power. The CO₂ emissions saved are the equivalent of some half a million tons annually.
5 More Schools In Bahrain To Get Solar Panels
5 more schools in Bahrain to get solar panels in the first phase of a new solar project launched by Education Minister Dr. Majid Al Nuaimi and Electricity and Water Affairs Minister Wael Al Mubarak. Both the ministers were visiting the National Charter Preparatory School for Boys. Around 2,263 solar panels will be installed during this phase. Dr. Al Nuaimi said more solar panels will be installed at 20 schools in the country in the next phase. Only environmentally friendly materials will be used while constructing these buildings. The total electricity which will be generated by these solar panels will be 3 MWs. Recently, according to a report, the country generated 237 MW of green energy in the year 2021.
