The first wind turbines have arrived at what Saudi officials bill as the world's biggest green hydrogen plant, in the futuristic NEOM megacity.

Around 30 turbines are expected to be delivered by the end of the year along with the project's first solar panels, Edmondson said, laying the groundwork for eventual production of some 600 tonnes of green hydrogen per day.

The $8.4 billion NEOM green hydrogen plant is expected to reach full production by the end of 2026 and all its products will be for export.

The green hydrogen plant is located in the Oxagon region of NEOM, which officials describe as "an advanced and clean industrial ecosystem".

NEOM has primarily garnered headlines for The Line, planned parallel mirror-encased skyscrapers extending over 170 kilometers (105 miles) of mountain and desert terrain.

The green hydrogen produced at the plant will be converted into green ammonia for ease of transport and then converted back into green hydrogen at its destination "for use (as a fuel) in sectors including transport and heavy industry", according to a briefing note released by the company.
