Worley awarded contract to support development of 200 megawatt electrolysis-based hydrogen plant

5 June 2021

Worley has been awarded an early engineering services contract by Shell to support the development of a new 200 megawatt electrolysis-based hydrogen plant.

Shell’s Holland Hydrogen I project will be located on the Tweede Maasvlakte in the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. A final investment decision will be made later this year.

Operations are scheduled to start by 2023 and will produce ~50,000–60,000 kg of hydrogen per day. Renewable energy will preferably be provided by the Hollandse Kust (noord) offshore wind farm. The green hydrogen produced will initially be used at the Shell refinery in Pernis to partially decarbonize the production of fossil fuels and support the industrial use of hydrogen in the heavy transportation industry.
