H2Tech - Q1 2021 - 11

Locomotive Program will retrofit a
line-haul locomotive with H2 fuel cells
and battery technology to drive the
locomotive's electric traction motors.
Once operational, CP will conduct rail
service trials and qualification testing
to evaluate the technology's readiness
for the freight-rail sector.
The work builds on CP's prior
experience with testing low-emitting
locomotive technologies, including
biofuels, compressed natural gas (CNG)
and battery-powered solutions. Nearly the
entire freight locomotive fleet of all railway
operators in North America consists of
diesel-powered units, representing the
rail industry's most significant source of
greenhouse gas emissions.

fuel use cases. The first phase of the
demonstration program will focus on the
production of green H2 for passenger
cars and buses in the Masdar City area. In
parallel, a kerosene synthesis plant will be
built to convert the majority of the green
H2 into sustainable aviation fuel.
In the second phase of the program,
production of decarbonized fuels for the
maritime sector will be explored. Through
the program, the organizations involved
can help significantly reduce the UAE's
carbon footprint, create domestic demand
for sustainable fuels and establish a local
industry base for their production.


DEME and OQ Alternative Energy
(OQ) intend to launch a JV project to
develop a green H2 plant in the Special
Economic Zone (SEZ) at Duqm, Oman,

Siemens Energy,
Mubadala drive Middle East
green H2 development
Siemens Energy has signed two
MOUs with Mubadala Investment Co. and
Masdar, and other partners, to jointly
drive the UAE's green H2 sector and the
production of synthetic fuels.
With Mubadala, Siemens Energy
intends to:
*	 Utilize renewable energy to
produce green H2 and synthetic
fuels, providing clean and
transportable energy to drive
new H2-based ecosystems that
are supplied from the UAE
*	 Establish an Abu Dhabiheadquartered player in the
synthetic fuels sector
*	 Jointly advance technology and
drive down the costs of green H2
and synthetic fuels production
*	 Enable Mubadala and Siemens
Energy to access emerging
H2 markets and create value
for both parties.
The agreement stems from the Abu
Dhabi Hydrogen Alliance between
Mubadala, ADNOC and ADQ. The first
initiative under this agreement and the
Abu Dhabi Hydrogen Alliance will be the
consideration of a demonstration plant
located at Masdar City, to be developed
under an agreement among Siemens
Energy, Masdar and a number of other
key players in the green H2 value chain.
The second MOU, signed with Masdar,
intends to establish a photovoltaic
(PV)-powered electrolyzer facility
to demonstrate green H2 production
technology and present sustainable

HYPORT H2 project
greenlighted for Oman

in cooperation with the Public Authority
for Special Economic Zones and
Free Zones (OPAZ).
The project falls under the renewable
energy and decarbonization targets of
the country's Oman Vision 2040 strategy.
The Duqm SEZ provides a strategic
location for large-scale green H2
production due to its centrality to global
trade, its abundant wind and solar
resources, its existing large port facilities
and its proximity to a large industrial zone.
The facility will also provide green
H2 and/or derivatives (such as green
ammonia) to international customers
in Europe, including the Port of
Antwerp. The planned, first-phase
electrolyzer capacity is estimated at
250 MW-500 MW, with upscaling to
follow. A site has been reserved with
OPAZ to allow the installation of a
solar and wind park along the Omani
coastline of the Arabian Sea.


Siemens, ExxonMobil provide tech
for green fuel project in Chile
Chile's Highly Innovative Fuels (HIF) has signed an MOU to supply German
oil trader Mabanaft with up to 500 MM liters per year (lpy) of synthetic gasoline
produced from green methanol. HIF, a unit of Chilean power company AME, is
building the project in Chile's windy Magallanes region, which will provide the
project, dubbed " Haru Oni, " with renewable energy.
HIF plans to move forward with construction of the Haru Oni project's first
commercial-scale unit in 2022. The project will use wind energy to convert
water into H2 and O2 through electrolysis. Siemens Energy will supply the
proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzer. HIF will also extract CO2 from
the atmosphere, which will be combined with H2 to produce methanol for
conversion into gasoline. ExxonMobil will supply its methanol-to-gasoline process
technology for the synfuel conversion.
The pilot plant will produce 750,000 lpy of methanol by 2022. Some of the
methanol will be used to produce 130,000 lpy of gasoline. By 2024, gasoline
capacity is expected to reach 55 MMlpy and to exceed 550 MMlpy by 2026. Other
companies participating in the project include Porsche, Enel Green Power and
Chilean national oil company ENAP.
