Abu Dhabi: ADNOC and Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) have signed a strategic collaboration agreement (SCA) to explore potential opportunities to build low carbon energy supply chains and advance carbon neutral solutions.
Under the agreement, ADNOC and MHI will aim to enhance their strengths and generate synergies to accelerate the development of global hydrogen and ammonia value chains. Additionally, they will explore research and deployment of carbon management technologies.
Mr. Musabbeh Al Kaabi, Executive Director of Low Carbon Solutions, and International Growth at ADNOC, stated that, “This agreement with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries builds on the UAE’s longstanding and successful strategic energy relationship with Japan. By matching Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ related technologies with our assets, we will not only assess opportunities to develop the important hydrogen and ammonia value chains but also explore synergies that have the potential to benefit ADNOC and the broader new energy ecosystem. Our combined expertise and commitment to advancing carbon neutral technologies offers great potential to help accelerate ADNOC’s journey to net zero by 2045.”
Low carbon hydrogen and ammonia are essential to decarbonizing hard-to-abate industries and meeting the growing global demand for cleaner feedstock for power generation.
Dr. Hitoshi Kaguchi, Senior Executive Vice President at MHI, remarked that, “It is a great honor to collaborate with a leading company in decarbonizing hard-to-abate industry sectors and in developing a low carbon fuel value chain globally. We look forward to contributing to ADNOC’s net zero ambition through our reliable technology in the coming projects under this agreement.”
ADNOC is a pioneer in developing international markets for ammonia and clean hydrogen. The company is constructing a low-carbon ammonia production facility at the TA’ZIZ industrial ecosystem and chemicals hub in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, with an annual capacity of one million tons.
