The Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar) has signed a cooperation agreement with Total energies to cooperate in the energy sector and to contribute to the initiatives led by Masdar to produce sustainable fuel for aircraft using green hydrogen technology.
The agreement was signed on the sidelines of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week 2022, in the presence of a number of senior officials and CEOs from Masdar, Siemens Energy and Total Energy, with the aim of enhancing cooperation between the three parties to develop a pilot plant in Masdar City in Abu Dhabi, one of the most sustainable cities in the world.
The agreement was signed by Francois Good, Senior Vice President for Refining and Petrochemicals in Africa, the Middle East and Asia at Total Energies; Dietmar Siersdorfer, General Manager Middle East and UAE, Siemens Energy; and Mohammed Jamil Al Ramahi, CEO of Masdar.
“We are pleased to collaborate with Masdar and Siemens Energy to address the challenge of decarbonizing the air transport sector by producing sustainable aviation fuel from green hydrogen,” said Francois Good, Senior Vice President Refining and Petrochemicals for Africa, Middle East and Asia at Total Energy. The project aims to invest its expertise in the field of renewable energy, manufacture sustainable fuel for aircraft, and market and produce sustainable and advanced fuels with the aim of working directly on the carbon intensity of energy products used by our customers. This move is also in line with our strategy to build a multi-energy company with the aim of supporting the community in achieving our shared goal of achieving full carbon neutrality by 2050.”
Dietmar Siersdorfer, General Manager Middle East and UAE at Siemens Energy, said: “Green hydrogen plays a pivotal role in the decarbonization endeavors of various sectors, especially the aviation sector, and the ideal opportunities it provides in this field, based on our extensive experience in electrolyzer technologies. and station integrations, we are fully aware of the importance of this cooperation in achieving our common goal. We also look forward to developing a strong and solid partnership with Total Energies, whose expertise will contribute to accelerating the implementation of this unique project.”
For his part, Mohamed Jamil Al Ramahi, CEO of the Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar), said: “The signing of the cooperation agreement with Total Energy today represents a major step in the path of this ambitious project. This pilot station will contribute to proving the commercial viability of green hydrogen as one of the most important types of carbon-neutral fuels, in a step that confirms Abu Dhabi’s leading position in this field, and we are confident in the importance of cooperation with international partners in this type of project that enhances efforts to develop the hydrogen market, which is considered It is relatively new and contributes to revealing the full potential of this sector and opening new horizons in the coming years.”
Prior to the launch of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week 2021, Masdar had announced its plans to cooperate with the Abu Dhabi Department of Energy, Etihad Airways, Lufthansa Group, Khalifa University of Science and Technology, Siemens Energy and Marubeni Corporation, to build this station. The aim of the initiative, after Total Energies signed the agreement, is to produce sustainable aviation fuel and supply it to partner airlines.
Since January 2021, the partners have successfully completed a range of technical service provider assessments, feasibility studies and preliminary designs, as well as collaborating with regulators on compliance issues. The move aims to move towards the initial engineering design phase later this year.
The project partners intend to benefit from their specialized expertise in all the details of the energy sector, its capabilities, and its presence in the local and global markets, to enhance the ability of the pilot plant to pave the way for the start of commercial operations towards the manufacture of sustainable fuel for aircraft, contribute to reducing production costs and enhance the commercial viability of the project.
