Wood gets contract for green ammonia facility

Article by Amanda Doyle

WOOD has announced that it will provide conceptual engineering for a large-scale green hydrogen production facility in Chile, where the hydrogen will be used to produce ammonia.

Total Eren’s H2 Magallanes Project will be located in San Gregorio, Southern Chile, and will use the green hydrogen to produce ammonia. The facility will have up to 10 GW of wind capacity, up to 8 GW of electrolysis capacity, a desalination plant, and an ammonia plant. It will also have port facilities to transport the ammonia to domestic and international markets. Wood’s scope covers the development of the complete off-grid integrated complex.

Thomas Grell, President of Renewable Energy & Power at Wood, said: “We are very pleased to have been selected by …Total Eren to work on the H2 Magallanes Project. This highly pioneering and innovative project represents the significant investment needed to realise not only the future of green hydrogen production but the potential of green ammonia, which is vital for ensuring sustainable food production, and an alternative clean fuel source in accelerating the energy transition.

“This contract signals our continued growth in the region and our determination to realise the bold ambitions shared by both our client and Chile.”
