Sulzer pump enables renewable hydrogen production

Sulzer pumps have been selected by natural gas process technology supplier Air Products to enable a 100% renewable and carbon free biofuel facility in the smart city of NEOM, Saudi Arabia. The facility’s capacity is projected at some 220’000 tonnes of carbon-free, green hydrogen per year.

Sulzer will deliver a range of business-critical pumps to the NEOM Green Hydrogen Project’s renewable energy source production plant. The green biofuel can be transported to destinations worldwide, where it can be further used as carbon-free hydrogen. As a sustainable fuel, carbon-free hydrogen is used to power local vehicles, minimizing their impact on the environment.

Sulzer’s Flow Equipment President Jan Lüder says: “We are pleased to see our technology supporting this progressive and innovative project. It is our long-term and ongoing investment in research and development and our proximity to the customer that positions us to help Air Products drive improvements in sustainable fuel production.”

Wolfgang Brand, Air Products’ Vice President NEOM Green Hydrogen, adds: “We selected Sulzer based on its broad technical capabilities and operational flexibility. With a manufacturing facility and a service center in Saudi Arabia, Sulzer can provide comprehensive and cost-effective in-country support. We look forward to working with them on this project to demonstrate how to reduce carbon emissions from the transport sector and ultimately establish a more sustainable future.”
