Vertex Hydrogen awards hydrogen project to Worley
Worley will utilize its global expertise in low-carbon hydrogen with local teams in the UK to help Vertex Hydrogen achieve its vision.
Worley has been awarded a project management services contract by Vertex Hydrogen for its low-carbon hydrogen production plant at Stanlow Manufacturing Complex in Ellesmere Port.
The 350 MW plant is the first in the UK to have completed front-end engineering and is expected to be one of the world’s first large-scale and low-carbon hydrogen plants.
The plant will allow UK industrial businesses to transition away from fossil fuels, capturing around 600k tonnes/year of CO2. It’s also an integral part of HyNet, one of two UK Government Track 1 clusters for industrial decarbonization.
Our scope will cover the inside battery limit of the production plant and all necessary outside battery limit works. It also includes support in creating the infrastructure needed to connect to feedstocks, products, and modifications within the refinery to accept low-carbon hydrogen as a means of powering production instead of fossil fuels. Our UK teams will deliver the work with support from our global experts.
Chris Gill, Vice President of Low-carbon Hydrogen at Worley, said, “Hydrogen has the potential to decarbonize hard-to-abate sectors, and this project is essential to the decarbonization journey of the HyNet low-carbon cluster in the UK.”
John Egan, Project Director at Vertex Hydrogen, said, “We are moving rapidly to deliver this vital plant and are delighted to have Worley onboard who share our vision to deliver real projects fundamental to the energy transition.”
