Kent wins major contract for vertex hydrogen, part of HyNet Northwest
Kent is providing technical advisory support to Vertex Hydrogen.
Kent (engineering company in energy transition) has been awarded a major contract for the Hydrogen Production Plant Project.
As a part of the new contract win, Kent will:
- Optimise the design prepared for the FEED phase to meet the latest requirements for the project
- Update the cost estimates
- Advice on the planning application and consents (which have already been submitted for the plant) and support through to full approval
- Provide the technical tender documentation for delivery contractors
Vertex Hydrogen is designing, developing and building the UK’s first large scale, low carbon hydrogen production plant that will be a core part of HyNet.
Kent has a long-standing relationship with the Vertex Hydrogen team and was part of the consortium for the Pre-FEED and FEED phases of the project; the familiarity with the project from previous phases, and the understanding of CCS enabled hydrogen, helped Kent secure this contract with Vertex Hydrogen.
HyNet, the UK’s leading industrial decarbonisation cluster, was selected by the UK Government as a Track 1 cluster. The project will unlock a low carbon future for North West England and North Wales, producing and distributing low carbon hydrogen to replace the fossil fuels used in industry, transport, and homes, and capture and store carbon dioxide.
Kent’s new awards hit $400 million in Q1 2022 after big wins across the globe. It is a leading engineering company in energy transition such as carbon capture, utilisation, and storage (CCUS), hydrogen (H2), low carbon fuels and chemicals, and offshore wind (OSW) has been awarded a major contract for the Hydrogen Production Plant Project.
Matt Wills, Market Director, Low Carbon and Onshore Projects at Kent, said, “Our ambition is to build long-term relationships with businesses that share our values and vision and together help make a difference.”
John Egan, Director of Vertex Hydrogen, said, “Vertex Hydrogen and Kent share the same commitment to playing an active role in the energy transition and service excellence, helping our clients meet their net-zero targets.”
