For the first green hydrogen gas network project in the world, which will provide green hydrogen for up to 300 houses in Fife, Scotland, Altrad Babcock has been chosen as the major works contractor.
For the benefit of gas distribution business SGN, Altrad Babcock will have to draw on its vast experience in completing challenging engineering and construction projects, such as developing the hydrogen production and storage plant. The project’s scope will include the development of all essential project components, including the construction of structures, mechanical work, electrical control, and instrumentation (EC&I).
On Fife’s east coast, in Levenmouth, there is a groundbreaking project called H100 Fife. In 2024, up to 300 homes will have the option to receive hydrogen through a new distribution system, offering zero-carbon fuel for cooking and heating. It will be the first entirely green, zero-carbon hydrogen-to-homes network anywhere in the world, proving that the entire British gas network is capable of supplying hydrogen gas.
