Plagazi to work with Petrofac on development of Köping Hydrogen Park

Cleantech company Plagazi has announced it will collaborate with services provider Petrofac on the development of Köping Hydrogen Park in Sweden.

Petrofac’s Engineering and Consultancy team will assist Plagazi in establishing and defining the plant battery limits in addition to refining the plant design before the project will enter the core front-end engineering and design (FEED) development phase later this year.

According to Plagazi, the early works on the project will be carried out over an eight-week period.

The partnership comes after a bidding process to determine the most suitable contractor for the development of the early works and FEED.

Torsten Granberg, Plagazi AB (publ), said: “After a long and thorough selection process, we are very excited to be working with Petrofac in the development of Köping Hydrogen Park. We believe they are the perfect fit for us as we share many of the same outlooks on how to best develop projects of this nature.”

As the early works stage kicks off, we are sure to deepen not only our understanding of the engineering scope for Köping Hydrogen Park but also our relationship with Petrofac for the coming project stages and potentially future projects. It will be very valuable to have such an experienced partner to collaborate with and learn from.”

Graeme Jack, Operations Director, Engineering, Petrofac, commented: “We are deploying our significant project engineering, procurement and construction expertise in support of Plagazi’s Köping Hydrogen Park development. This partnership builds on our growing track record in delivering front-end engineering for gasification and renewable hydrogen projects and we look forward to supporting Plagazi on this exciting project.”

To note, according to Plagazi, Köping Hydrogen Park is expected to annually produce 12,000 tonnes of green hydrogen from 66,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste and provide the Köping municipality with 10 MW of district heating.
