NEOM Green Hydrogen Company (NGHC), a joint venture created by ACWA Power, Air Products and NEOM, has reached a milestone in the construction and development of the NEOM green hydrogen plant, by receiving its first delivery of wind turbines at the Port of NEOM in Northwest Saudi Arabia.
The wind turbines are now being transported via road to the Wind Garden site near the Gulf of Aqaba, where they will be assembled and installed.
NGHC, a joint venture between ACWA Power, Air Products, and NEOM, noted that 250 wind turbines will be installed to power the facility, and more deliveries are expected to occur before the year’s end.
“This is the first of a series of major equipment deliveries arriving over the next year. We continue to make great progress since achieving financial close earlier this year and are on track to start exporting green hydrogen in 2026,” - David Edmondson, CEO of NGHC
Additional turbines are expected to be delivered by the end of 2023, with NGHC’s Wind Garden said to ultimately feature more than 250 to directly power the green hydrogen plant via a dedicated electricity transmission grid.
