Plans progress towards a pioneering green ammonia and hydrogen facility in Oman


Plans for a world-leading green ammonia and green hydrogen facility are advancing in Oman – and the development is considered one of the largest of its kind in the world.

ACME Group announced on Monday (August 23) that it had signed a land contract for development to be established in the Special Economic Zone, Port of Duqm, Oman.

The Duqm Special Economic Zone offers a strategic and competitive location for the development of large-scale production of green hydrogen, as it is central to world trade, the cheap wind and solar resources, the existing large port facilities and the proximity to a booming industrial area.

After commissioning, the plant will make a significant contribution to the decarbonization of regional industry in Oman and provide green hydrogen and / or derivatives (such as green ammonia) to international customers in Europe and Asia.

Commenting on the signing of the land contract that will drive the project forward, Manoj Upadhyay, Founder and Chairman of the ACME Group, said: “The signing of the land reservation contract will allow us to begin construction preparation activities.

“We have hired environmental consultants and builder engineers Black & Veatch and plan to start construction in Oman as soon as we start up our first green hydrogen and green ammonia facility in Bikaner, India. The plant in Oman would be built up in phases and the first phase is expected to go into operation at the end of 2022. “

In addition to the above-mentioned development in Oman, the ACME Group is also in the process of commissioning the world’s first integrated plant for green hydrogen and green ammonia in Bikaner, India.
