Oman intends to supply one million tons of hydrogen by 2030. To achieve its goal of becoming one of the world’s greatest green hydrogen generators, the country has established Hydrom, a wholly-owned subsidiary of EDO SAOC.
Hydrom is a regulatory agency within Oman’s Ministry of Energy and Minerals. The company’s role entails the segmentation of government-owned land regions as well as the construction of related large-scale world-class green hydrogen initiatives.
The company administers the process of allocating assets to developers and facilitates the creation of shared infrastructure. It is also in charge of interconnected network industries and hubs in intimate association with the Opaz area.
On November 6, Hydrom launched the first public bidding process to grant the first land blocks toward the 2030 production target. Hydrom, in collaboration with the ambitious government objectives, will use the Sultanate of Oman’s site and decent solar and wind capabilities to manufacture green hydrogen and boost the government’s efforts to meet decarbonization ambitions.
Hydrom also looks forward to collaborating with worldwide partners to shape the energy future. The announced bid round is the first of its type in the world, and the company believes it will assist in expediting the growth of the green hydrogen sector.
These innovative and bold sustainability measures arrived just a few weeks before the COP27 meeting in Egypt. Earlier, at a media briefing, Minister Salim Nasser Al Aufi announced the Sultanate of Oman’s future climatic commitment and comprehensive green hydrogen program.
Oman has committed to achieving Net Zero Emissions by 2050 in order to meet the Paris Agreement’s aim of preventing global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Moreover, His Majesty established a sustainability center to lead the country’s transformation to a green economy.
