We are very proud to have signed this agreement with such a recognized leader and long-standing partner with whom we have delivered many key energy projects. By sharing the experiences, capabilities, and know-how of our companies, we are confident that NT Energies will be able to rapidly bring to life the energy transition infrastructures that the UAE and MENA region require both domestically and for exports, particularly in the areas of Power to Gas, blue/green hydrogen and ammonia, CO2 management, sustainable fuels and circularity. Beyond policies, it is industry leaders like T.EN and NPCC who will develop, scale up and integrate credible solutions towards a low-carbon environment. Our collaboration will help to further develop local competencies, increase in-country value, and cooperate to break down barriers to engineer a sustainable future together.”
