ACWA Power, a developer, investor and operator of power generation, water desalination and green hydrogen plants worldwide, and LONGi Hydrogen, a green hydrogen production equipment and solution provider and a wholly-owned subsidiary of LONGi Green Energy Technology, have partnered up for the first phase of a 3,000 tonne-per-year green hydrogen project in Uzbekistan.

Specifically, the two parties will cooperate on the 3,000-tonne green ammonia pilot project, LONGi Hydrogen said, noting that the company will supply the ALK electrolyzer stacks as well as full BoPs for this project.

To note, the 3,000 tonne-per-year green hydrogen project in Uzbekistan will be an integrated facility, with a commissioning target set for December 2024.

Zhou Wei, General Director of Manufacturing and Overseas Sales, LONGi Hydrogen, stated: “We are thrilled to receive recognition from the global partners for our technologies and capabilities. LONGi Hydrogen is dedicated to providing safe and reliable products to accompany our customers for global project development. Leveraging on our innovative products and experienced team, we will continue to drive down the LCOH and make green hydrogen an affordable energy in the near future.”

Marco Arcelli, ACWA Power CEO, commented: “This project marks a significant milestone in Uzbekistan’s energy history, representing the first phase of our collaboration. We are proud to be working with our partners to deliver the green hydrogen project, which will make a deep impact on the country’s ambitious energy transition plans. Looking ahead, we are committed to progressing further in the near future to achieve even greater milestones.”

ACWA Power and officials from Uzbekistan and Saudi Arabia inaugurated the first phase of a 3,000-tonne-per-year green hydrogen project in Uzbekistan in November 2023. According to ACWA Power, once the second phase is complete, 2.4 GW of wind energy will power the production of 500,000 tonnes of green ammonia per year.

When completed in full, ACWA Power said this will be the company’s second utility-scale green hydrogen project after the NEOM green hydrogen project in Saudi Arabia, which is a joint venture between ACWA Power, NEOM and Air Products.
