Norwegian fertilizer firm Yara has signed “a term sheet for offtake” for all 100,000 t/y of green ammonia output from Phase-1 of a JV project Norway’s Scatec and India’s Acme Group are developing at Duqm in Oman. The initial 100,000 t/y output will come from 500MW of solar power, with plans to expand production to 1.1mn tons (MEES, 1 July).
