Shell awards Worley a green hydrogen hub contract
Shell has awarded Worley
a services contract to support the development of a new 200 MW electrolysis-based
hydrogen plant in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
The new plant will be powered by renewable energy from an offshore wind
farm that is currently in development. Once complete, the green hydrogen
plant will be one of the largest commercial green hydrogen production facilities
in the world.
Operations are scheduled to start by 2023 and are estimated to produce
50,000 — 60,000 kilograms of green hydrogen per day. The green hydrogen
produced will initially be used to decarbonise Shell's nearby refinery
in Pernis and support the industrial use of hydrogen in the heavy transportation
Under the contract, Worley will provide early engineering services for
the green hydrogen plant including integration with other assets such as
offshore wind, pipelines, electrical grids and Shell's Pernis refinery.
The services will be executed from Worley's offices in The Hague, with
support from Worley's global hydrogen subject-matter experts and Global
Integrated Delivery team in India.
"As an Australian company operating globally, we are pleased to be
working with Shell on this first-of-its-kind project. We look forward to
supporting Shell's strategy to be a provider of net-zero emissions energy
products and this project is an example of how Worley can help our customers
achieve their goals and own purpose of delivering a more sustainable world,"
said Chris Ashton, Chief Executive Officer of Worley.
