Watson Farley & Williams (“WFW”) has advised Envision Energy on its arrangements to supply 1.67 GW of onshore wind turbines to NEOM Green Hydrogen Company, which is building the world’s largest utility-scale hydrogen plant powered entirely by renewable energy in Saudi Arabia.
The 3.9 GW NEOM Green Hydrogen Project is a mega-plant to be located in the Oxagon region of NEOM, a planned smart city in north-western Saudi Arabia. From 2026, the mega-plant will produce up to 600 tonnes per day of carbon-free hydrogen in the form of green ammonia.
Under the contract, Envision Energy’s cutting-edge 171-6.5 MW wind turbines will be installed and are expected to be fully operational by 2026. WFW advised on the agreement and execution of all onshore and offshore project and construction documentation required to finalise the turbine supply and long-term service agreement.
Envision Energy, part of the Envision group, is a world-leading green technology company and net-zero technology partner. Envision designs, sells and operates smart wind turbines, energy storage systems and green hydrogen solutions through Envision Energy.
Emmanuel commented: “This is a landmark green hydrogen project, thought to be the biggest in the world and the first to be financed. We are delighted to have been able to advise our client on such a milestone project that will act as a pathfinder for future sustainable initiatives”.
