Wood secures FEED work on Norwegian large-scale green hydrogen project
Gen2 Energy has contracted consulting and engineering firm Wood for the front-end engineering design (FEED) scope of its green hydrogen production facility, located in Mosjøen in northern Norway.
In the first phase, Gen2 Energy plans to build a 100MW plant with continuous production of around 45 tonnes of green hydrogen per day. This is the first large-scale commercial green hydrogen production facility in Norway.
The award follows Wood’s initial conceptualisation of the plant as well as other production facilities that Gen2 Energy is developing to accelerate the distribution of hydrogen produced in Norway via zero-emission renewable energy to the UK and across Europe.
The contract will be delivered by Wood’s existing teams in Norway, with support from the company’s global experts from within the Operations and Projects business units.
Wood will execute the FEED study jointly with personnel from Gen2 Energy.
Lars Fredrik Bakke, Wood’s Vice President of Norway, said: “We are excited to support Gen2 Energy and enable the acceleration of green hydrogen production in Norway. With our deep domain expertise in hydrogen projects, we are well-positioned to support the delivery of large-scale production facilities which will play a critical role in enabling a transition to a lower-carbon energy mix.
“We look forward to building our relationship with Gen2 Energy to support their continued growth and uniting in our shared ambition to create a greener, more sustainable future.”
Jonas Meyer, CEO of Gen2 Energy, added that the contract with Wood represents a milestone in the company’s targeted work to realise large-scale production of green hydrogen in Norway.
“In close collaboration with Wood, we will build a facility that turns green hydrogen into a commercial product for markets in Norway and northern Europe. Gen2 Energy’s hydrogen expertise matches very well with Wood’s industrial project capabilities.”
