The pre-FEED (Front End Engineering Design) and technical survey for the East Coast Hydrogen Pipeline (ECHP) project, which is being headed by East Coast Hydrogen, have been contracted to Worley (ECH2).
The project will link the gas network with 10GW of hydrogen production from the industrial centres in Teesside and the Humber. By connecting hydrogen sources between Humberside and Northampton with this project, Cadent hopes to potentially build a 240-kilometer network that will meet the UK’s future needs for decarbonized energy.
Worley’s part in the project is to offer Cadent with a study to help them understand how to convert natural gas supply into hydrogen and to give them vital details about the potential route and size of the pipeline. After that, a pre-FEED project study will be conducted.
Cadent, Northern Gas Networks, and National Gas Transmission are partners in the ECH2 project, which supports the UK government’s efforts to achieve its 2050 net-zero targets.
