As we transition into a sustainable and future-proof energy supply that is less dependent on fossil fuels, industrial organizations play a major role in the transition of nations and governments. This is where global companies like Bilfinger have an important role to play, to lead the process, nurture innovation, and investments for a sustainable future towards a low carbon energy system. Bilfinger has gained experience in the field of energy transition by delivering a comprehensive portfolio of products and services where it has further developed its capabilities and references in newer technologies such as the production of green Hydrogen, various power-to-liquid processes as well as carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS). This enables Bilfinger to help its customers focus on their core competencies and to take advantage of the many opportunities presented by the energy transition.

Therefore to promote promising cooperation between German and Arab partners in the energy sector, Ghorfa Arab-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry organized in cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Economy and Energy and the Society for International Cooperation (GIZ), the 11th Arab-German Energy Forum, on November 24th to 25th, 2020. In the Energy Transition Forum, Bilfinger highlighted its key contribution towards Hydrogen potential in the Middle East landscape. With a region best known for its prowess in Oil & Gas production, it now has plans to transition to a new future committed towards Hydrogen and other low carbon emission solutions. 

During one of the panel sessions focused on Hydrogen and its potential in Arab countries, Bilfinger emphasized how it is able to lead hydrogen opportunities and focus on exporting H2 energy using safe means to global consumer markets. “I believe the region and its leadership has the vision and ambition to become not just a consumer but a major exporter to other regions of high energy demand such as Europe & Far East – it has the perfect conditions, location, and sun.” stated Charles Price, Global Development Director, Bilfinger SE.

“Bilfinger possesses and has a proven track record of its capability and skills to develop mega-scale projects and support governments and organizations in their strategy towards energy transition. We hope that fruitful collaborations result to strengthen and expand business relations” stated Abdulaziz Al-Mikhlafi, General Secretary Ghorfa Arab-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
