The announcement comes after green energy firm Fortescue Future Industries unveiled plans in September to build a green hydrogen plant in Egypt, with 9.2 GW of solar and wind generation. 

The green hydrogen plant in Egypt expected to be constructed in phases

The project, which is intended for the Suez Canal Economic Zone, is expected to be constructed in phases. The first phase is expected to produce 20,000 tons of green hydrogen and its derivatives and be put into service in 2026.

However, there was no timetable provided for when the facility would reach its full capability to produce 220,000 tons of green hydrogen annually. Elsewedy Electric, a provider of energy solutions, and ReNew Power have joined to develop the project locally.
