RIYADH: While South Korea’s Posco has commenced work on a green ammonia project in Oman, UAE’s Emaar has extended the bid deadline for a package regarding the Dubai-based Creak Beach project. Meanwhile, contractors are expected to wait another year until Saudi’s Neom project becomes the region’s largest project by contracts. On another note, Saudi’s Myclinic has been chosen to build, own, and operate Al-Ula hospital project.
· South Korean steel making company Posco Group has announced that it has started work on a green ammonia project in Oman, MEED reported. With a potential capacity of 4 GW, the project is part of at least 10 hydrogen and green ammonia projects that are being planned in the country.
