US firms complete engineering for green hydrogen production facilities

New York — McDermott International’s CB&I Storage Solutions and New Energy Development Company completed engineering for two 50-MW energy projects that can each produce nearly 24,000 kg/day of renewable hydrogen, the companies said April 12.

“Companies all over the world are looking for tangible solutions to reduce their carbon footprint and this design provides a valuable hydrogen solution to accomplish that goal,” Cesar Canals, senior vice president of CB&I Storage Solutions, said in a statement.

The facilities can power a series of electrolyzers to produce green hydrogen and oxygen through a design that also provides the flexibility to incrementally expand production and storage capabilities through modular additions, the statement said.

The hydrogen design can be used for grid-scale blending with natural gas pipelines, blending existing or new power-generating facilities and energy-storage injection into salt caverns and above-ground storage tanks, the companies said.

The facility design allows for incremental 15 MW of 100% hydrogen-fueled power generation to support grid-scale energy storage applications, according to the announcement.

“Working closely with our strategic partner, CB&I Storage Solutions, we believe New Energy’s innovative, flexible design can provide the most cost-effective application of green hydrogen technologies for the natural gas industry,” Alexander “Hap” Ellis, New Energy managing partner, said.
