Engineering and environmental studies are building on a comprehensive wind & solar measurement campaign to further define and enhance the benefits of the GEO 25-gigawatt green fuels project.
An international consortium comprised of OQ, the Sultanate of Oman’s global integrated energy company, InterContinental Energy, the leading dedicated green fuels developer, and EnerTech, a Kuwait government-backed clean energy investor and developer, today announces further progress on the development of “GEO” the Green Energy Oman integrated green fuels mega project.
The consortium is collaborating on the project, which will consist of approximately 25 gigawatts (GW) of renewable solar and wind energy producing over 1.8 million tons of zero-carbon green hydrogen per annum.
Najla Zuhair Al Jamali, CEO Alternative Energy at OQ said: “The GEO team, together with our technical specialists, are at the vanguard of mega-scale green fuels project development. The work being undertaken will place Oman at the forefront of such projects, maximizing the utilization of Oman’s natural resources of wind and solar to produce green fuels, and build the country’s associated industry. We look forward to continuing development in collaboration with our partners.”
Having deployed a series of 140m high meteorological masts across the site since 2019 the consortium has gained significant understanding of site issues and opportunities, and last year awarded a series of key studies to progress the project:
Working with these specialists, the GEO team is further developing and refining the project, its export value, and the potential for expansive development of Oman’s skills base and technical expertise in renewable energy projects.
