Black & Veatch is the winner of a green hydrogen contract in the United States

EPC (Engineering, procurement, and construction) activities for the 220MW Advanced Clean Energy Storage facility in Delta, Utah, have been awarded to Black & Veatch by a partnership of Magnum Development and Mitsubishi Power Americas. Initially, the hub will be built to transform renewable energy into 100 tonnes of the green hydrogen per day, which will be kept in two salt caverns.

“Being part of this inventive team pushing green hydrogen as a fuel as well as feedstock is assisting pave the road for a lower-carbon energy long run that advances the energy shift farther, faster,” said incoming chairperson and CEO Mario Azar of Black & Veatch. He continued, “When it comes to controlling the energy transition and fulfilling their decarbonization goals, Black & Veatch is dedicated to keeping our customers and partners way ahead of the game.

“The Advanced Clean Energy Storage hydrogen center is a watershed moment in the advancement of green hydrogen, long-term energy storage, and large-scale decarbonization.” The 220MW of rectifiers, electrolyzers, gas separators, medium-voltage transformers, as well as distributed control system will all be provided by Mitsubishi Power.

Michael Ducker, the joint venture’s president of the advanced clean energy storage & COO (chief operating officer), stated: “Magnum Development and Mitsubishi Power are working together to build the world’s inaugural and biggest industrial green hydrogen center, with the help of our innovative partners.

“We are committed to furthering the development of green hydrogen, long-duration energy storage, and large-scale decarbonization, and we are excited to be collaborating with Black & Veatch on constructing the crucial infrastructure required to realize our vision of a carbon-free future.”

The hydrogen storage hub, which began building this spring, will be located next to the Intermountain Power Agency’s IPP Renewed Project and will support the 840MW hydrogen-effective gas turbine integrated cycle power plant presently under construction. Starting in 2025, the plant will operate on a 30% green hydrogen as well as 70% natural gas combination. By 2045, the plant will gradually grow to use 100 percent hydrogen.
