Green hydrogen project in Vietnam; CB&I to build hydrogen storage for Plug Power

The Green Solutions appoints Black & Veatch to study the generation and storage of green hydrogen and green ammonia in Vietnam.

Black & Veatch and The Green Solutions (TGS) have signed an MoU to advance green hydrogen and green ammonia production and supply in Vietnam.

TGS leads efforts to harness green energy in Vietnam to manufacture green hydrogen and green ammonia. Black & Veatch, a global leader in hydrogen energy development, brings its vast expertise in clean energy technologies and ammonia processing to the project team.

Under the MoU, Black & Veatch and TGS are targeting to produce 180,000 tonnes of green ammonia and 30,000 tonnes of green hydrogen per year to support regional decarbonisation efforts.

TGS has appointed Black & Veatch to study the production and storage of green hydrogen in Vietnam utilising solar or wind power supplied through the grid.

The study covers the development of a green ammonia production plant and plant configuration and technology review, technology evolution risk and tentative mitigation, conceptual design, order of magnitude cost estimates, and levelized cost calculations.

Augustus Global Investments will provide the initial development funding for the project.

McDermott’s CB&I to build spheres for green hydrogen production in STAMP

McDermott’s storage business, CB&I, will design and build two 500k gallon double-wall liquid hydrogen spheres for Plug Power Inc.’s new green hydrogen production facility in Genesee County, New York.

The production facility, leveraging Plug Power’s proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyser technology, is expected to produce 45 tonnes/day of green liquid hydrogen—making it the largest green hydrogen facility in North America.

The turnkey engineering, procurement and construction contract for both spheres also includes insulation, testing and painting, with field erection at Plug Power’s 30-acre site at the Western New York Science, Technology and Advanced Manufacturing Park, also known as WNY STAMP.

The stainless-steel inner sphere, which holds the liquid hydrogen, will measure nearly 52 feet in diameter with an internal design pressure of 30 pounds/square inch and a design temperature of -423F. The outer sphere, which acts as an insulation container, will be fabricated using carbon steel with a diameter of nearly 60 feet. Insulation is a critical component of any double-wall sphere.

The project has passed the final investment decision and is currently under construction.
