Mitsubishi Power has signed a full turnkey contract with Egypt’s Alexandria National Refining & Petrochemicals Company (ANRPC) to provide advanced hydrogen fuel conversion technology solutions, supporting the company to achieve its decarbonisation goals
The solution will be installed at the ARNPC refinery plant in Alexandria, which provides 30% of Egypt’s gasoline supply for domestic consumption.
Mitsubishi Power will be responsible for the design, engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning of fuel conversion solutions for the existing 100 ton/hour boiler, enabling it to fire up to 100% hydrogen by the end of 2023. This includes the installation of state-of-the-art hydrogen burner technology and advanced control solution to ensure efficient and safe operations.
Salah Gaber, chairman & CEO of ANRPC, said, “We are thrilled to partner with world technology leader Mitsubishi Power on innovative fuel conversion solutions that will help us to achieve our commercial goals while reducing our carbon footprint by 22,000 tons annually. Modernising existing conventional boilers by enabling fuel conversion is a practical and important milestone to enable Egypt to deliver on its ambitious energy efficiency and decarbonisation goals under the national Integrated Sustainable Energy Strategy. We look forward to working together with Mitsubishi Power to achieve all milestones and deliver the project on schedule.”
Khalid Salem, president, Middle East and North Africa at Mitsubishi Power said, “The ANRPC hydrogen fuel conversion project is a landmark project for Egypt’s energy industry and we are honoured to partner with O&G leader ANRPC to help them fulfill the country’s ambition to become a low carbon energy leader. In the lead up to COP27, the ANRPC project is especially significant as it reflects Egypt’s commitment to the development of a national hydrogen industry. At Mitsubishi Power, we will continue to work with our partners in Egypt and across the Middle East and North Africa to help them achieve decarbonisation and deliver a sustainable future for the region.”
