Commenting on the agreement, 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. Modernizing existing conventional boilers by enabling fuel conversion is a practical and important milestone to enable Egypt to deliver on its ambitious energy efficiency and decarbonization 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."
Falk Hoffmeister, Head of Service at Mitsubishi Power Europe GmbH, said: "We are proud to partner with Egypt's leading O&G refinery ANRPC, providing them with our groundbreaking hydrogen fuel conversion technology solutions, which will enable ANRPC to lower its CO2 emissions. The addition of hydrogen, considered to be the fuel of the future to ANRPC's fuel mix will deliver the flexibility they need to support them in achieving cost efficiencies. This latest contract is part of our continued commitment at Mitsubishi Power to develop technologies that convert existing thermal power systems to hydrogen and thus support our customers in the region to achieve their decarbonization goals."
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 honored 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 decarbonization and deliver a sustainable future for the region."
