Muscat: During Oman Sustainability Week, Oman Shell and Oman Airports Management Company announced land allocation for Shell’s green hydrogen for mobility project.

The land assigned for this project is owned by Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and is located near Oman International Airport. Construction will commence as soon as the necessary permits are secured, with the station expected to be on stream in 2024.

Commenting on this milestone, Walid Hadi said, “This station will be the first station in Shell globally to have the hydrogen production unit on site, which will help achieve the maximum energy efficiency. Taking an integrated energy approach, the station will be partially solar-powered and will include multiple mobility solutions including electric vehicle (EV) charging units, hydrogen fuelling units as well as other fuelling products and non-fuel retail products and services.”

Sheikh Aimen Al Hosni, CEO of Oman Airports, stated, “The vision of Oman Airports' environmental sustainability strategy is to work together with all our stakeholders towards a greener Oman for generations to come. The green hydrogen for mobility project in partnership with Oman Shell is an important investment in the existing infrastructure, which will reduce carbon emissions and provide a more sustainable environment for the residents around Muscat Airport. The introduction of hydrogen cars to our fleet and having a state-of-the-art hydrogen station set up near the premises of Muscat Airport will be a major step towards a more sustainable future for Oman, in line with Oman Vision 2040 and Oman’s Net Zero by 2050 ambitions.”
