Green Energy Oman (GEO) is one of the most promising clean fuels hubs in the world with the potential to be a leading project in this sector, supplying the globe with green fuels in a decarbonized economy. It is a 25 GW wind and solar green fuels facility sited in the southern region of Oman in Al Wusta and Dhofar governorates where it will utilize Oman’s natural resources of wind and sun to turn seawater into green fuels: hydrogen, ammonia, methanol, and synthetic fuels. Additionally, the project has a potential to supply the local economy with cheap clean power.
Oman is blessed with strong wind and solar resources, especially within the centre and southern regions. High wind speeds(at 150m) combined with a low population density qualifies it as a prime location for a project on a global scale. The targeted Upstream land will accommodate long rows of large wind turbines, about 1,800 turbines and 20 million solar panels, which will be installed over a 10-year period. Green fuels would be produced, stored, and exported in the Downstream area within the Special Economic Zone south of Duqm.
