Jordan, Masdar ink deals to produce green hydrogen, wind power

AMMAN, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- Jordan on Wednesday signed two agreements with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) state-owned Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar) for green hydrogen production and wind power generation in the kingdom.

The green hydrogen facility will be located near Jordan's Aqaba port with an annual production capacity of 50,000 tons of cost-competitive hydrogen, using desalinated seawater and renewable energy, Jordan's Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Saleh Kharabsheh said in a statement.

Under the other deal, Masdar will develop a 1-gigawatt wind power station in Jordan with a Battery Energy Storage System, according to the statement.

The deals were signed on the sidelines of the COP28 conference ongoing in the UAE, the statement added.
