Vallourec Commits To Green Energy Transition In The Middle East And Africa

Vallourec, a world leader in premium tubular solutions, announces its effective membership in Dii Desert Energy, a global organisation dedicated to energy in the desert regions of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

Consequently, the Group also joins the MENA Hydrogen Alliance, a collaborative network committed to the development of green hydrogen projects across this region.

Created in 2020 by Dii Desert Energy, the MENA Hydrogen Alliance supports initiatives aimed at developing the hydrogen value chain. It brings together private and public industrial players as well as scientists and academics to stimulate the growth of the green hydrogen market.

The Dii Desert Energy Initiative

Dii Desert Energy is an international, independent industry network operating from Dubai. With its footprint in the MENA region, it connects people, countries and markets to clean energy on a global scale, paving the way to “net zero emissions”, secure and affordable energy from the deserts. The organisation launched the MENA Hydrogen Alliance in 2020. Dii’s platform, which includes over 110 companies and organisations from more than 35 countries, mobilises senior executives, government decision-makers, R&D institutions and academics.

The network serves as a valuable resource for the entire hydrogen ecosystem, including by providing expert guidance, developing feasibility studies, structuring R&D projects, and facilitating roundtable discussions. Additionally, the Alliance offers a platform for partners to connect and meet. Vallourec’s membership reflects its unwavering commitment to reducing emissions and promoting low-carbon energy solutions alongside international partners.

A New Hydrogen Storage Solution

As part of the Dii Partner Meeting, taking place in France from June 5 to 7, Vallourec is hosting 27 members of the organisation for a visit to its R&D facilities, as well as the demonstrator of its Delphy hydrogen storage solution. This visit, organised today, will showcase Vallourec’s expertise and innovative, sustainable solutions in the hydrogen sector.

Vallourec’s membership in the MENA Hydrogen Alliance underscores its ambition to further strengthen its industrial and commercial performance in New Energies. “We are honoured to join a network of leading industry players in the MENA region. This collaboration reinforces our commitment to the energy transition and empowers us to support the development of hydrogen in a key, high-potential region where we have a strong presence.” says Vincent Designolle, Delphy Director at Vallourec.
