InterContinental Energy, along with consortium partners OQ and Enertech, announced some key project development updates last week (click to download pdf). Three specialist organisations have been contracted for feasibility work on the 25 GW Green Energy Oman (“GEO”) project in the Al Wusta governorate:
- DNV is currently completing Energy Yield Assessments, using three years of meteorological data collected across Al Wusta.
- Engineering giant Worley Group is contracted to further develop GEO and bring the project to life: optimising wind and solar power generation and then “transfer & transforming” this renewable energy into hydrogen and subsequently ammonia.
- HMR will conduct environmental & social impact assessments, based on two decades of experience in Oman.
The announcement also includes a graphic visualisation of the wind and solar generating areas being studied, and a site for ammonia manufacturing on the Oman coast, south of Duqm city:
InterContinental’s three other green Supergiants – the Asian Renewable Energy Hub, the Western Green Energy Hub (both in Australia), and the SAREH project in Saudi Arabia – are in various stages of development.
The GEO team, together with our technical specialists, are at the vanguard of mega-scale green fuels project development. The work being undertaken will place Oman at the forefront of such projects, maximizing the utilization of Oman’s natural resources of wind and solar to produce green fuels, and build the country’s associated industry. We look forward to continuing development in collaboration with our partners.CEO Alternative Energy at OQ Najla Zuhair Al Jamali in the official press release, 5 Apr 2022
