Uniper hires Technip Energies for H2Maasvlakte work

Technip Energies has been given the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) study contract by Uniper for the H2Maasvlakte project, which will begin immediately in October 2022.

By 2030, H2Maasvlakte plans to gradually grow up to a 500 MW total electrolysis capacity for green hydrogen. In 2025, the first 100 MW is expected to be put into service.

The Dutch government’s objective of constructing 500 MW of green hydrogen electrolyzer capacity by 2025 and achieving 3–4 GW by 2030 would be greatly aided by Uniper’s flagship H2Maasvlakte project.

The Uniper H2Maasvlakte project was recently nominated by the European Commission for the “IPCEI Hy2Use” hydrogen value chain under the IPCEI initiative. The H2Maasvlakte project was involved in this process and received a variety of letters of support, letters of intent, and signed memorandums of understanding from a variety of parties, including renewable energy producers bidding for Hollandse Kust VI and VII (West), original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for electrolyzers, and green hydrogen off-takers in industrial processes. This enormous amount of backing demonstrates the broad support this initiative has received on a local, national, and international level for the whole value chain.

A multidisciplinary team from Technip Energies will deliver the entire FEED package as part of the FEED scope of work, including the design of a large-scale water electrolysis system, the balance of the plant, and site integration.
