Currently, SEZAD is implementing a number of green, renewable energy, and green hydrogen initiatives. Duqm is a renowned spot for attracting green industry and renewable energy projects due to the incentives offered by OPAZ to attract investments and offer opportunities for growth and the solar, wind, and logistic capabilities that make it easier to export green energy and green hydrogen products.
