Oracle Power signs cooperation agreement for green hydrogen facility in Pakistan

PowerChina, one of the largest Chinese state-owned-enterprises, has partnered with Oracle, with the intention to set up a hydrogen facility in Pakistan to produce hydrogen with electrolysers powered by photovoltaics. The partners are targeting a 400 MW capacity hydrogen plant, with planned hydrogen production of approximately 150,000 kg per day.

Green hydrogen, hydrogen that is generated from renewable sources, is widely regarded as one of the most important energy sources to support the transition to a carbon neutral future. It is becoming a competitive fuel source in multiple sectors, including steel and fertiliser production, cars, power generation, long-range shipping and aviation.

The Government of Pakistan is reviewing proposals from international investors and has also set up a dedicated team to review options and strategy. PowerChina has reported its interest to its government in China and the project is expected to receive bilateral support through the CPEC programme. PowerChina is working on a technical pre-feasibility and both parties have begun collaborating with their respective governments for required support.

“Green hydrogen is potentially the single most important tool the international community has in our collective bid to transition to a carbon neutral future” said Naheed Memon, CEO of Oracle. “I am delighted to announce our agreement with PowerChina as we explore options of jointly developing a green hydrogen facility in Pakistan, which would represent the first production facility of its kind in the country and could support multiple industries including steel and fertiliser production, power generation, shipping and the aviation industry”.
