Uzbekistan has announced the establishment process of 3,000 tons of green hydrogen production capacity per year based on the ammonia plant in Chirchik.
The country has also shared that in the future wind turbines will be in the republic with a capacity of 2.4 GW. They have planned to achieve 500 thousand tons of green ammonia from green hydrogen per year.
Uzkimyosanoat JSC collaborated with ACWA Power Company of Saudi Arabia, and started a green hydrogen production project in Chirchik on a pilot basis.
In the initial face, they have planned to install wind turbines with a capacity of 52 MW in the Bukhara region to produce 3 thousand tons of hydrogen per year and process it into mineral fertilizers, as well as cover the consumption of electrolysers.
LONGi’s technologies have been used in this project.
Upon full project implementation, Uzbekistan will deploy wind turbines with a 2.4 GW capacity and produce 500,000 tons of green ammonia from green hydrogen annually. It’s been reported that fertilizers manufactured using green energy (green hydrogen) can command a 15-20% higher price in the global market. This shift to environmentally friendly energy sources in Uzbekistan is anticipated to enhance the competitiveness of local products worldwide, attracting more buyers.
As a result of the project’s completion, the consumption of natural gas in fertilizer production will substantially decrease, saving approximately 33 million cubic meters of natural gas each year.
