Worley to Help EI-H2 Develop Green Hydrogen Facility in Ireland
Provider of engineering, procurement, and construction services to the energy industry Worley has been appointed by energy company EI-H2 to help develop Ireland’s first commercial scale green hydrogen production facility. The 50-MW plant will be located in Aghada, close to the lower Cork harbour. It will see green hydrogen produced by electrolysis, powered by renewable energy. Once operational, the facility will supply over 20 tpd of green hydrogen to a diverse commercial market and will remove 63 000 tpy of carbon emissions. The project is expected to be operational before the end of 2023.
Worley’s technical and commercial experts will be developing the concept design for the facility, utilising best practice from similar projects around the globe to accelerate project delivery and achieve the earliest possible commercial production date, supporting Ireland in its ambition to become a leader in green energy.
The project, which once complete, will be one of the largest green energy facilities of its kind in the world, will generate job creation in the local area, and will assist in meeting the targets of Ireland’s recent Climate Bill which mandates emissions reductions of 51% by 2030.
