Brooge Energy engages Thyssenkrupp for hydrogen plant in the UAE
Brooge Energy plans to commence the study shortly with the final report expected to be delivered during Q4 2022.
Brooge Energy Ltd has engaged Thyssenkrupp Uhde to undertake the technical study of its planned Green Hydrogen and Green Ammonia plant.
The study will cover the green hydrogen production facilities, the ammonia plant, and the associated utilities. The study aims to provide cost estimates for capital and operating expenditures, EPC timeline, and selected process and layout documents.
In June this year, Brooge Renewable Energy Ltd (BRE), a wholly owned subsidiary of Brooge Energy was established to focus on green energy-related infrastructure activities. At the same time, Brooge Energy announced that BRE, as a first step, planned a Green Hydrogen and Green Ammonia plant in Abu Dhabi that is targeted to now produce up to 600,000 MT green Ammonia per annum in its second phase and has signed a preliminary land lease agreement for a 150,000 square meter plot that will accommodate the project. BRE currently expects to begin construction of this facility in 2023.
Brooge Energy is excited to begin the process of bringing this highly anticipated project to reality by engaging with the appropriate partners to see the project to completion. It has been at the forefront of the clean energy movement, and our goal is to be one of the first private companies to successfully implement a green hydrogen/ammonia project in UAE and demonstrate its economic and environmental benefits on a local and global scale.
Mr. Nicolaas Paardenkooper, Chief Executive Officer of Brooge Energy, said, “Engaging thyssenkrupp Uhde is another important step in our transition to clean energy. Global demand for clean energy sources has been strong and is expected to accelerate in the coming years.”
