Yara and ACME signed a binding agreement for supply of green ammonia

The long-term offtake agreement between Yara and Acme covers the supply of 100,000 tonnes per year of renewable ammonia and is likely to be the world's first arm's length contract for renewable ammonia of this scale and duration.

Yara, a leading Norwegian crop nutrition company and a global leader in ammonia trade and shipping, and GHC SAOC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Acme Cleantech, a leading renewable energy company in India, today signed a firm and binding agreement for supply of ammonia with reduced CO2 emissions from Acme to Yara on a long-term basis.
Both companies had previously signed a non-binding offtake Term Sheet and the current agreement concludes 18 months of negotiations during which the regulatory framework and certification regime have evolved significantly, creating a suitable environment for such long-term contracts.
The long-term offtake agreement between Yara and Acme covers the supply of 100 000 tons per annum of renewable ammonia and possibly the world’s first arm’s length contract for renewable ammonia of this scale and tenure. Over its life cycle, the project will help reduce global GHG emissions by up to 5.0 million tons of CO2 equivalents. In the base case, the renewable ammonia will be supplied by Acme from Phase-1 of its Oman project with an expected start date in 2027 and will comply with the EU RFBNO and Renewable Energy Directive requirements.
“Yara Clean Ammonia is a frontrunner in enabling the hydrogen economy across the shipping, food, power, and industrial sectors. The renewable ammonia from Oman will be part of our scalable distribution system, developing a reliable, safe, and cost-efficient supply chain for low emission ammonia across different market segments. This agreement demonstrates the power of partnerships and collaboration to develop value chains that reduce emissions” says Magnus Ankarstrand, President Yara Clean Ammonia.
Mr. Ashwani Dudeja, Director ACME Group said “We are pleased to have concluded the deal with Yara who will serve as an anchor customer for our solar based ammonia project being developed in Oman. This agreement is only a start and will facilitate further cooperation between the two companies while playing a vital role in accelerating the adoption of green hydrogen and its derivatives. We have had a number of firsts to our credit in this sector and with the signing of this contract, we aim to become the world’s first large scale producer of green ammonia.”
Oman's favorable conditions for renewable energy, its strategic location, and the proactive approach by the government, makes it an appealing hub for producing green ammonia. ACME is spearheading the construction of green ammonia project in Oman with a planned capacity of 900 000 ton per annum to be developed in phases. Yara, renowned for its expertise in global ammonia production, logistics, and trade, is actively expanding the market for renewable ammonia, essential for decarbonizing various industries.
