Norway’s Yara International has agreed to buy 100,000 tonnes of green ammonia annually from Phase 1 of Acme and Scatec’s Omani project.
A previous announcement by Acme indicated the port site would be able to produce around 876,000 tons of the green fuel per year but the Indian developer today said that figure would be 1.2 million tons. The 100,000-ton-per-year first phase of the facility may be operational this year.
The Indian solar developer said the Oman facility would use 3 GWp of solar and 0.5 GWp of wind energy to produce 2,400 tons of green ammonia daily and approx. 0.9 million tons annually. Construction is planned in phases with an investment of $3.5 billion over the next three years.
The latest addition is the Indian multinational’s second project in Oman after a 125 MWp solar plant commissioned in June last year.
The plant—Oman’s first renewables-based independent power project—is also the world’s biggest single-unit solar park to use bifacial modules.
