Hydrogen export cluster to GCC countries

Korkia, together with its partners LUT University, Rejlers and Kova PMC, is implementing a project in which we will start exporting Finnish hydrogen cluster companies to the GCC region and help companies to participate in large investment projects in the target region.

GCC countries

Combining Finnish expertise with the GCC countries' interest in the hydrogen industry offers business opportunities in the hydrogen value chain

POLICY OBJECTIVES

The GCC countries recognize the need to move from fossil energy production to renewable energy production. Countries in the region want to diversify local industry beyond the oil and gas industry and see hydrogen as a key factor in change.

WIND AND SOLAR POWER

Renewable energy in the GCC countries offers opportunities for green hydrogen production. The United Arab Emirates hosts two of the world’s top ten solar power plants (1.2 GW and 2.0 GW), one completed and the other under construction.

HYDROGEN PARKS

Several hydrogen pilot plants and parks are planned in the GCC countries. The Emirates’ first renewable energy hydrogen electrolysis pilot plant is under construction. Several companies and government agencies are exploring the use and further processing opportunities of hydrogen.

ENERGY COMPETENCE

The GCC countries have a long history in energy production and the process industry. They have expertise of their own, especially in the petroleum and petrochemical industries, which already are major users of hydrogen. This gives the GCC countries a solid foundation and inherent expertise in the hydrogen economy.
