Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD), a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Ports, is hosting the formation of a green ammonia production facility, targeting regional and international markets.
Helios Industry, a privately-owned company, plans to invest over AED3.67 billion (USD1 billion) in the construction of the facility over the next few years, developing it with local and international partners in two phases. When complete it is projected to produce 200,000 tonnes of green ammonia from 40,000 tonnes of green hydrogen.The Helios facility at KIZAD, will be powered by a dedicated 800 MW solar power plant that will be set up within the Freezone. The plant will use solar power to electrolyse water and split molecules into hydrogen and oxygen.
Abdullah Al Hameli, Head of Industrial Cities & Free Zone Cluster, Abu Dhabi Ports, said: “The adoption of sustainability and green technology has gained significant traction within the GCC and greater MENA region over the past few years. Abu Dhabi Ports is proud to be the host of an innovative company like Helios Industry, and will strive to continue supporting responsible manufacturers who are helping bring about increased sustainability, whilst simultaneously enhancing the level of green knowledge and awareness within the UAE.”
