Air Products has contracted with Longitude Engineering to get engineering help for the NEOM green hydrogen project in Saudi Arabia.
At the forefront of the energy, the shift is this project. It will use ample local wind and solar power to create hydrogen through electrolysis, which will subsequently be converted into ammonia for distribution across the world.
It is acknowledged that green hydrogen is essential to worldwide decarbonization efforts. We are proud to contribute in any way to the pioneering work being done by the NEOM Green Hydrogen Company in bringing green hydrogen generation on a large scale to reality. Longitude Engineering’s managing director, David Bignold.
Air Products Ltd., the main EPC contractor, has hired Longitude to offer technical support on the export jetty and the interaction between ammonia tankers and the jetty in order to make sure the design complies with project requirements.
The scope of work includes engineering assessment of the FEED design, pre-EPC risk review to reduce cost, schedule, and safety risks, support for the EPC tendering process, review of the EPC tender, and assistance with the export jetty’s detailed design and construction.
“The NEOM green hydrogen project will significantly speed up the global energy transition, and we consider being invited to help to realize this goal a vote of confidence.” David Bignold was added.
The present scope of Longitude’s activities will be completed between 2021 and 2024. The contract’s worth has not been made public by the corporation.
