The project is part of Gunvor’s program to transform their Rotterdam facility into a green energy hub. The import terminal is expected to provide green hydrogen to the Netherlands in 2026.

Under the contract, CB&I will provide the FEED of the ammonia tank and associated inside battery limits equipment. McDermott will help with FEED activities for the interconnecting pipeline, tie-ins, and other outside battery limits (OSBL) scope.

As part of the FEED, a project execution cost estimate will be developed as the basis for potential conversion into an engineering, construction, and procurement (EPC) contract for the implementation phase.
