UAE-based technology company Helios Industry will build the plant an the Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD), KIZAD said in a statement on its website on Tuesday. The project will cost about $1 billion.

"It will be one of the first plants in the GCC to produce green ammonia from hydrogen, using renewable energy from an 800MW dedicated solar power plant," the organisation said.

At peak production levels the facility will be able to produce 40,000 mt/year of hydrogen, which can make up to 200,000 mt of green ammonia.
