Worley to support Shell hydrogen plant in the Netherlands

Sustainable economic growth is essential due to climate change, energy transition, the increasing importance of the circular economy and the digitalisation of industries.

Worley (an Australian engineering company providing project delivery and consulting services) has been awarded a services contract by Shell Nederland Verkoopmaatschappij BV (Shell) to support developing a new 200 MW electrolysis-based hydrogen plant in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

The plant would produce around 50k-60k kg of green hydrogen per day and would be one of the largest commercial green hydrogen pants in the world. The plant is expected to start operations by 2023. A wand farm project is also under development, and once completed, it will supply renewable power to the electrolysis plant.

The green hydrogen produced will be initially supplied to Shell’s nearby refinery in Pernis to support the plant in decarbonisation efforts.

Worley will deliver early engineering services for the green hydrogen plant, which would help the plant integrate with other assets such as offshore wind, pipelines, electrical grids and Shell’s Pernis refinery.

Chris Ashton, CEO of Worley, said, “We look forward to supporting Shell’s strategy to be a provider of net-zero emissions energy products and this project is an example of how Worley can help our customers achieve their goals and own purpose of delivering a more sustainable world.”

Recently, Worley has also been awarded the front-end engineering design services contract for a power-to-fuel project – Liquid Wind’s first commercial-scale eMethanol facility in Örnsköldsvik, northern Sweden. The plant is expected to produce 50k tonnes/year of renewable methanol using biogenic CO2 from a biomass-fired power plant and combine it with green hydrogen.
