Mitsubishi Power, a power brand of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. (MHI) signed a full turnkey contract with Egyptian O&G Company Alexandria National Refining & Petrochemicals Company (ANRPC) to provide advanced hydrogen fuel conversion technology solutions, supporting the company to achieve its decarbonization goals. The solution will be installed at the ARNPC refinery plant in Alexandria, which provides 30% of Egypt’s gasoline supply for domestic consumption.

Under the arrangement, Mitsubishi Power will provide the design, engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning of fuel conversion solutions for the existing 100 ton/hour boiler, enabling it to fire up to 100% hydrogen by the end of 2023. This includes the installation of state-of-the-art hydrogen burner technology and advanced control solution to ensure efficient and safe operations.

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.”

Falk Hoffmeister, Head of Service at Mitsubishi Power Europe GmbH, said, “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, “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.”

ANRPC works under the umbrella of Egyptian general petroleum corporation (EGPC).
