ABU DHABI, UAE, July 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- ADNOC today announced that it has started construction on the Middle East's first high-speed hydrogen refueling station. The station, which ADNOC is building in Masdar City, will create clean hydrogen from water, using an electrolyser powered by clean electricity from the grid.
Generating no carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions when used, hydrogen has the highest energy per mass of any fuel and can give vehicles longer driving ranges and faster refueling times compared to conventional fuels. battery electric vehicles.
ADNOC also announced a partnership with Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) and Al-Futtaim Motors to test the high-speed hydrogen refueling station using a fleet of clean hydrogen-powered vehicles.
His Excellency Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology and Managing Director and CEO of ADNOC Group, said: "The need to reduce carbon emissions to address climate change is clear and urgent. ADNOC is putting the sustainability and decarbonization at the heart of its strategy, and as we decarbonize our operations today, we are making strong investments to be a provider of choice for tomorrow's clean energy.
"Hydrogen will be a critical fuel for the energy transition, helping to decarbonize economies of scale, and is a natural extension of our core business. Through this pilot program, we will collect important data on how hydrogen transportation technology works at as we continue to develop the UAE's hydrogen infrastructure."
Under the partnership, Toyota and Al Futtaim Motors will provide a fleet of hydrogen-powered vehicles. The pilot program will help ADNOC understand how hydrogen with high-speed refueling can be best used in mobility projects to support the UAE's National Hydrogen Strategy, which aims to position the country among the largest hydrogen producers. by 2031.
ADNOC Distribution will operate the station once it is completed later this year. A second station, at Dubai Golf City, will be equipped with a conventional hydrogen fueling system.
ADNOC has allocated $15 billion (AED 55 billion) to promote and accelerate low-carbon solutions, investing in new energy and decarbonization technologies to reduce its carbon intensity by 25% by 2030 and enable its Net Zero ambition by 2050 .
ADNOC is a leading diversified energy and petrochemical group wholly owned by the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. ADNOC's objective is to maximize the value of the emirate's vast hydrocarbon reserves through responsible and sustainable exploration and production to support the economic growth and diversification of the United Arab Emirates.
