KBR, has secured a pivotal contract from EET Hydrogen for the development of a blue hydrogen process technology. The project includes front-end engineering design (FEED) for the HPP2 low-carbon hydrogen facility, set to be the cornerstone of the UK’s leading industrial decarbonization project, HyNet.
KBR’s role in this groundbreaking initiative encompasses technology licensing, proprietary engineering design and equipment, catalyst, and FEED for a plant capacity of up to 1000 MW. This facility, strategically located at the Stanlow Manufacturing Complex, holds the promise of revolutionizing the UK’s efforts to transition towards cleaner energy sources.
The HyNet project, which integrates hydrogen production, supply, and carbon capture and sequestration (CCS), seeks to address the pressing challenge of reducing emissions in areas characterized by concentrated conventional energy usage. It’s a resolute response to the call for sustainable alternatives in industries that have traditionally proven hard to decarbonize.
KBR’s rich experience spanning over five decades in engineering design, process technology development, and plant design solutions places it at the forefront of sustainable solutions. This partnership with EET Hydrogen underscores KBR’s commitment to assisting clients in achieving their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) objectives.
Jay Ibrahim, President of Sustainable Technology Solutions at KBR, expressed enthusiasm about the project’s implications. He noted, “This strategic win attests to our commitment towards helping our clients with both their ESG and business objectives.”
The blue hydrogen energy transition envisioned by KBR and EET Hydrogen marks a significant step forward in the UK’s journey toward a low-carbon future. By harnessing KBR’s proprietary hydrogen knowledge and sustainable technology, this project not only signifies progress in industrial decarbonization but also sets the stage for a more environmentally responsible and sustainable energy landscape.
As the world grapples with the urgent need to combat climate change, partnerships like the one between KBR and EET Hydrogen exemplify the power of innovation and collaboration in forging a cleaner, more sustainable energy future. The UK’s largest blue hydrogen project is poised to be a game-changer in the global pursuit of cleaner energy solutions.
