Oman-based green hydrogen developer Hyport Coordination Company (Hyport Duqm) has invited companies to bid for a contract to provide project management consultancy services for its planned green hydrogen project in Duqm.  

It expects to receive technical and commercial proposals on 4 October.

The scope of work includes design review and project management during the front-end engineering and design (feed) stage, as well as procurement technical support. 

Hyport Duqm is a joint venture of Belgium’s Deme Concessions and OQ Alternative Energy.

In June, the consortium signed a second land reservation agreement for a green hydrogen and ammonia production plant with the Public Authority for Special Economic Zones and Free Zones (Opaz) in Duqm.

The project will include a solar and wind park with a total installed capacity of about 1.3GW; a dedicated, high-voltage green electricity transmission line; and a utility-scale electrolysis and ammonia conversion plant.

Hydrogen will be produced from desalinated water and converted into green ammonia, which will be stored and shipped from the Port of Duqm to target export markets.

This entails a green hydrogen and green ammonia production facility with a 500MW electrolysis capacity on a site of 793,000 square metres.

The project’s first phase aims to produce more than 50 kilotonnes a year of green hydrogen by 2029.

The renewable energy farms will be located in the Special Economic Zone at Duqm’s (Sezad) renewable energy area, where a site of 150 square kilometres has been allocated.

Hyport signed its first land reservation agreement with Opaz in 2021 for the green hydrogen and ammonia production facility it plans to set up in Sezad.

The agreement preceded the early engineering work and site data collection for the project.

In July 2021, MEED reported that the joint venture had signed a cooperation agreement with German energy firm Uniper to provide engineering services and negotiate an exclusive offtake agreement for the green ammonia produced at the planned facility.
