To pursue its plans of developing green hydrogen projects., Jordan’s Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Saleh Kharabsheh has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Chairman of Mass Group Holding Company Ahmad Saleh to conduct feasibility studies for the development of green hydrogen projects in Jordan.
Kharabsheh said,” The agreement targets an annual production of 180,000 tonnes of green ammonia and outlines the general framework of cooperation to facilitate and empower the company to undertake a preliminary feasibility study for a new green hydrogen project.”
Highlighting the significance of partnerships with the private sector, he said, “The agreement is the eighth of its kind in the production of green hydrogen and green ammonia,” and further expressed hope in realising the ministry’s vision and the energy sector’s ambitions for Jordan to become a regional and global hub for hydrogen production and export.
The minister affirmed the commitment of the ministry and the sector to facilitating the investment in green hydrogen, which, he said, represents a “precious opportunity for the Kingdom and investors alike, as it is a promising sector in Europe”.
Kharabsheh noted that this MoU is in line with the government’s efforts to enhance Jordan’s role as a regional centre for green energy production.
He commended the government’s initiative to expand investments in the green hydrogen sector, highlighting the Kingdom’s strategic location and the abundance of renewable energy resources, such as solar and wind energies.
