Siemens Energy joins Project Ra

DAI Infrastruktur and Siemens Energy will collaborate on the renewable ammonia project in Egypt, with Siemens to supply electrolysers and equipment for hydrogen production. In June, DAI Infrastruktur announced that Naftomar Shipping & Trading has committed to offtake 400,000 tonnes per year of ammonia for a decade from Project Ra, meaning 85% of production capacity is now covered by offtake agreements.


Electrolyzer solutions play a fundamental role in Green and Hybrid Ammonia Plants

The first section of the presentation will cover the current technology status of electrolysis with a special focus on industrial and large-scale plants. It will explain different electrolyzer plant configurations according to project size to be used as reference for existing Ammonia plants and different integration capacity. The second part of the presentation will cover main technical and commercial considerations that need to be considered in integrating electrolysis to decarbonize existing gas ammonia facilities, such as: electrolysis integration, impact of the renewable power source, SMR flexibility, auxiliary systems to consider, land availability, O&M considerations, technology scale up, etc.


Trade mission to Chile: report from the AEA President

AEA President Hans Vrijenhoef recently participated in an official hydrogen trade mission to Chile, addressing the audience at the Santiago Green Hydrogen Summit and securing interest to start planning Chile’s first ammonia-focused event. With a number of key challenges facing ammonia project developers in Latin America and the need to train & educate so many ammonia “newcomers”, 2024 will be the perfect opportunity to bring together all the key stakeholders.


US hydrogen hubs revealed: coast-to-coast projects to anchor new industry

The US Department of Energy has selected seven hydrogen hub applications to proceed to a funding negotiation stage, with $7 billion to be split between them. Fertiliser, power generation, industrial decarbonisation and heavy vehicle transport are all target markets for the new hubs, with locations to range from the Gulf Coast, Appalachia, the Midwest to the Californian coast.
