Approved by the Ministry of Higher Education, the Oman Hydrogen Centre is the first-of-its-kind and will serve as the centre of knowledge in hydrogen technology in Oman and GCC.
It will cater for Green Hydrogen Research, Technology, Education, Application and Economy to develop and enable Oman’s competences for the Green Hydrogen economy.
