WORLEY has been awarded the project management services contract for Vertex Hydrogen’s low-carbon hydrogen plant, located at the Stanlow Manufacturing Complex, in Ellesmere Port, UK.
Worley will support the creation of infrastructure needed to connect feedstocks, products, and modifications within the Stanlow refinery, to accept low-carbon hydrogen for power production, instead of fossil fuels.
The 350 MW plant is the first to complete front-end engineering and is expected to be one of the first large-scale, low-carbon hydrogen plants in the world. Earlier this year, joint-venture company Vertex released a report to share lessons learned through the front-end engineering design (FEED) process. As well as helping industry to transition away from fossil-fuels, it will capture around 600,000 t/y of CO2.
Chris Gill, VP of Low-Carbon Hydrogen at Worley, said: “Hydrogen has the potential to decarbonize hard-to-abate sectors, and this project is essential to the decarbonization journey of the HyNet low-carbon cluster in the UK.”
Vertex’s plant is a part of HyNet, a UK Government Track 1 cluster for industrial decarbonisation. It is among 20 projects shortlisted to enter the next phase of the UK’s carbon capture, use, and storage (CCUS) cluster process.
