Oman Shell and Oman Airports Management Company made land allocations for Shell’s Green Hydrogen for Mobility Project during Oman Sustainability Week.
Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), which owns the land, is near Oman International Airport. Construction will begin as soon as permits are obtained. The station is expected to be operational by 2024.
Walid Hadi commented on the milestone by saying, “This station will become the first Shell station worldwide to have the hydrogen production plant on site. This will allow for maximum energy efficiency. The station will use an integrated energy approach and be partly solar-powered. It will also include multiple mobility solutions, including hydrogen fuelling units and electric vehicle (EV), charging units.
Sheikh Aimen Al Hosni is the CEO of Oman Airports. He stated that Oman Airports’ environmental sustainability strategy aims to work with all stakeholders to create a cleaner Oman for future generations. Oman Shell and Green Hydrogen for Mobility Project are important investments in the infrastructure. This will reduce carbon emissions, as well as provide a more sustainable environment for residents near Muscat Airport. Oman will make a significant step toward a more sustainable future by introducing hydrogen cars to its fleet and setting up a hydrogen station near Muscat Airport. This is in line with Oman Vision 2040, Oman’s Net Zero By 2050 ambitions.
