The Prime Minister witnessed the signing of 7 new MoUs (Memorandum of Understanding) for the establishment of green hydrogen production industrial complexes in Ain Sokhna, part of the SCZone (Suez Canal Economic Zone). The agreements were signed with leading specialized international companies, including:

- Indian ACME (investing USD13bn to produce 2.2mn tons/yr of green hydrogen)

- British Globeleq (investing USD11bn to produce 2mn tons/yr of green hydrogen)

Previously, there were deals also signed with Norwegian Scatec, Fortescue Future Industries, Maersk, French EDF, French Total Energies, Belgian Demi, and UAE’s EMEA.

This flurry of activity comes as part of the Egyptian government’s expedited policy direction to become a regional and global hub for green hydrogen production, with the agreements set to be activated during the upcoming COP global climate summit hosted in the Red Sea coastal city of Sharm el-Sheikh. Egypt is pioneering the region’s drive towards the green transition with ambitious environmental and climate preservation goals.
