Orascom Construction to Help Build Egypt's First Green Hydrogen Plant

Orascom is slated to execute the work locally, bringing the facility online before the start of the global climate change conference COP27 at Sharm El Sheikh in November 2022.

Orascom Construction PLC has joined a green hydrogen consortium alongside The Sovereign Fund of Egypt, Scatec and Fertiglone, which will oversee the development of Egypt's first green hydrogen production facility.


The facility will include a 100-megawatt polymer electrolyte membrane electrolyzer, making it not just the first electrolyzer in Egypt, but the largest independently owned facility worldwide.


The green hydrogen produced by this facility will be used as feedstock for Fertiglobe's EBIC ammonia production facility in Ain El-Sokhna, for up to 90,000 tonnes of green ammonia.
