DEME announced the signing of milestone cooperation agreement for hydrogen portfolio in Egypt

DEME is proud to announce the signing of a milestone Cooperation Agreement with the Egyptian Government to establish an industrial-scale green hydrogen production facility in Egypt’s western desert.

Leveraging the knowledge gained from developing Oman’s pioneering HYPORT Duqm green hydrogen project, DEME will apply its expertise to this innovative second facility.

The new HYPORT green hydrogen production plant will be located in the industrial zone of the Port of Gargoub, the country’s newest commercial and industrial zone on Egypt’s Mediterranean coast. The wind and solar renewable power generation infrastructure will be located 70 km southwest of Gargoub and connected to the production facility via a dedicated high-voltage power line. HYPORT Gargoub is a three-phase project, with the first phase targeting an annual green ammonia production of approximately 320,000 tonnes.

HYPORT Gargoub is the second project within DEME HYPORT Energy’s portfolio to achieve a comprehensive agreement and land reservation, following its flagship project, HYPORT Duqm, in Oman. DEME HYPORT Energy is pursuing a fully integrated strategy to ensure that each project generates and transmits all the necessary electricity and water – resulting in 100% green hydrogen molecules.
