SWECO has been tasked with developing a concept design for the waste-to-hydrogen project in Konin, Poland, as well as an Environmental Impact Assessment study.
Hydrogen Utopia International Ltd., through its Polish subsidiary Hydropolis United sp. z o.o, inked a contract with SWECO. The projected cost of the Concept Design and EIA report is GBP 100,000.
SWECO is a consulting engineering, environmental technology, and architecture firm that specializes in building sustainable cities, industries, and community infrastructure. It recognizes the significance of Powerhouse technology and its potential to speed up the world’s clean energy transition.
This appointment comes after PHE inked non-binding Heads of Terms with HUI in November of last year for the use of its technology in Poland.
Tim Yeo, Executive Chairman of Powerhouse Energy said: “We are delighted SWECO has been appointed to help rollout Powerhouse technology in the city of Konin, Poland. The rollout in Europe of Powerhouse technology is underway and it will soon be helping Poland on their clean energy transition, helping it meet its net zero targets”.
Dariusz Czerniak, SWECO, Director, Energy Department said: “It is our privilege to work closely with Hydrogen Utopia International on the PHE DMG® system, as it is a novel, 4.0. technology. We believe that the DMG® solution can tackle the global growing plastic waste problem. The DMG® system will also enhance the transition of the hydrogen economy and we are proud to be a part of this exciting future for Poland”.
Aleksandra Binkowska, CEO of Hydrogen Utopia International said: “The DMG® system is a global revolution and it is reassuring to have SWECO on my side to build the first one in Poland. I am sure that this is just the beginning of a long-standing and prosperous alliance between the two Companies. The ultimate goal is to build at least ten systems in Konin in order to create the first Polish Centre of Hydrogen. It was my vision and it is a privilege to turn this vision into reality together with SWECO”.
Earlier this year Powerhouse also agreed to sign non-binding Heads of Terms with Hydrogen Utopia International (“HUI”) with a view to granting an exclusive non-transferable licence for the application of its DMG® technology in Greece and Hungary.
