McDermott, New Energy wrap up green hydrogen projects engineering
U.S. firms McDermott’s CB&I Storage Solutions and New Energy have completed engineering for two 50-megawatt hydrogen projects.
The facilities will produce nearly 24,000 kilograms per day of renewable hydrogen using New Energy’s proprietary design to power a series of electrolyzers to produce green hydrogen and oxygen.
This New Energy’s design also provides the flexibility to incrementally expand production and storage capabilities through modular additions.
The hydrogen design is made for grid-scale blending with natural gas pipelines, blending existing or new power generating facilities and energy storage injection into salt caverns and above ground storage tanks.
The facility design allows for incremental 15 megawatts of 100 per cent hydrogen-fueled power generation to support grid-scale energy storage applications.
Cesar Canals, senior vice president of CB&I Storage Solutions, said: “Companies all over the world are looking for tangible solutions to reduce their carbon footprint and this design provides a valuable hydrogen solution to accomplish that goal.”
“Working closely with our strategic partner, CB&I Storage Solutions, we believe New Energy’s innovative, flexible design can provide the most cost-effective application of green hydrogen technologies for the natural gas industry,” said Alexander “Hap” Ellis, New Energy managing partner.
“As we look toward the future, we strongly believe that hydrogen will have a very prominent role and we will continue to apply our collective expertise to make that future a reality,” said Matthew Harwood, McDermott’s senior vice president of strategy, risk and sustainability.
