Jordan Green Ammonia (JGA) is embarking on this feasibility study with the goal of establishing a new green hydrogen project in a greenfield site near the Port of Aqaba, utilizing desalinated seawater and dedicated renewable power. 

Minister Kharabsheh emphasized the Ministry’s dedication to its sustainable vision, highlighting the alignment of this initiative with the Economic Modernization Vision (2020-2030), which places a strong emphasis on investment in green hydrogen in Jordan. 

The primary focus of this memorandum is to generate cost-competitive green hydrogen and green fuels, contributing to Jordan’s development and supporting the global transition towards a net-zero emissions future.  Dr Wael Suleiman, JGA and Fidelity Group CEO, commented, “Today’s signing ceremony is a symbol of Jordan’s resolute determination to harness its abundant renewable energy resources. Our MoU serves as the blueprint for the collaborative efforts between private sector entities and the government to expand the potential of green hydrogen.” 

JGA will provide a detailed Work Plan outlining “Key Milestones” of the project. A technical report will offer a comprehensive prefeasibility level desktop assessment of the full project value chain, encompassing renewable energy, energy storage, power transmission, and green hydrogen/ammonia production.
