Samsung Engineering Announces H2biscus Green Hydrogen & Ammonia Project in Malaysia

Samsung Engineering announced that with Lotte Chemical, Korea National Oil Corporation, and Malaysia’s Sarawak Economic Development Corporation Energy (SEDC Energy) the FEED contract for the Sarawak H2biscus Green Hydrogen & Ammonia project(H2biscus) in Malaysia was launched with a kick-off meeting.

The H2biscus project is a project to produce clean hydrogen based on renewable energy in Malaysia and introduce it to South Korea. Launched in early 2022, the project has started and is on track, including signing a renewable power MOU with the Sarawak Electricity Authority in September of the same year.

The alliance on this project predicts that H2biscus will greatly contribute to achieving South Korea’s carbon neutrality goal and revitalising the hydrogen economy. Some of the clean hydrogen to be produced through this project will be used locally in Sarawak, and the rest will be converted to ammonia form and shipped to South Korea to be used in various forms.

The Malaysian state of Sarawak plans to contribute to revitalizing the local economy and implement a hydrogen economy in earnest through the successful development of the H2biscus project.

Hong Namkoong, President and CEO of Samsung Engineering said, “We have taken the first step for carrying out the main project of the H2biscus project, which has great significance both domestically and internationally. We will successfully develop the project as well as the FEED, making H2biscus the role model for global hydrogen projects.”

Samsung Engineering is seeking to expand business opportunities by securing technology through partnerships with domestic and foreign companies as well as utilising its network with major overseas clients.

In particular, similar to H2biscus, Samsung Engineering’s Hydrom Clean Hydrogen Project in Oman, which produces clean hydrogen from overseas and introduces it into South Korea, and the Shepherd CCS Project, which transports and stores domestically generated carbon and stores it overseas, are gaining traction.
