Andrew Forrest’s Fortescue Future Industries Inks Deal With Kingdom of Jordan For Green Hydrogen Study

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on The West Australian.

I can’t read the contents without subscribing, but I assume the title says it all.

However, I have a few thoughts.

This Google Map shows the Kingdom of Jordan.

Jordan is outlined in red.

The map suggests how hydrogen could be produced.

  • I would assume that there is plenty of sun in Jordan and there appears to be plenty of space for solar panels.
  • What is the potential for wind energy in the desert?
  • It would appear to me, that there are two routes to export the hydrogen. By pipeline across Israel to the Mediterranean Sea or by tanker from a port on the ed Sea, which just creeps onto the map in the South-West corner.
  • Perhaps, a giant electrolyser and export terminal could be built near Aqaba, which is Jordan’s only seaport.

What I like about this plan, is that to the North-East and South-East of Jordan, lie the deserts of Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Could these in future be carpeted with solar panels, where the electricity is fed to Aqaba to create more green hydrogen?

Andrew Forrest is a busy man and seems to be organising a one man project to provide the world with green hydrogen.

He is the second richest Australian according to Wikipedia.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see some more hydrogen deals at COP26, where Andrew Forrest is involved.
