Ohmium International has signed an agreement to provide 343MW of green hydrogen electrolysers to Tarafert for the development of a green ammonia and urea fertiliser production facility in Mexico. Hydrogen Industry Leaders looks at how this will support Mexico in moving away from fossil fuels.
The green hydrogen produced by the electrolysers is said to enable the production of up to 200,000 tonnes of green ammonia per year and is planned to be powered by solar.
It is said that Ohmium will deliver electrolysers over three tranches, with the first 69 MW expected to be delivered in 2025.
Arne Ballantine, CEO of Ohmium International said: “Ammonia shortages this year have shown the importance of countries developing their own production that doesn’t rely on fossil fuels. The Tarafert project is among the most ambitious in the world and we’re excited to be a part of it,”
For too long, ammonia production has been an energy-intensive process that produced tonnes of greenhouse gas. Green Hydrogen can reduce those carbon emissions to zero.”
