McDermott International Ltd and New Energy Development Company LLC today (12 April) confirmed the completion of the engineering part of two 50 MW energy projects, H2 Bulletin reports.
Each modular will produce about 24 tonnes/day of renewable hydrogen employing New Energy’s proprietary design to power electrolyzers to produce green hydrogen and oxygen. The project production and storage capacity is expandable through modular additions.
The hydrogen design is ideal 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. Its design allows for an incremental 15 MW of 100% hydrogen-fuelled 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.”
Alexander Ellis, New Energy Managing Partner, said, “We believe New Energy’s innovative, flexible design can provide the most cost-effective application of green hydrogen technologies for the natural gas industry.”
Matthew Harwood, McDermott’s Senior Vice President of Strategy, Risk and Sustainability, said, “We strongly believe that hydrogen will have a very prominent role.”
McDermott is an American multinational engineering, procurement, construction and installation company that owns CB&I Storage Solutions, a leading designer and builder of storage facilities, tanks and terminals.
