Jacobs Engineering was awarded a feasibility study contract from Equinor Energy to evaluate the possibilities for building a hydrogen production plant, including CO2 capture and export facilities, in Eemshaven, the Netherlands.

Dallas/USA — The hydrogen will be supplied as fuel to an existing natural gas-fired power plant that will be converted into a hydrogen-fueled power plant designed to lower the plant's carbon emissions at a large scale.

The award of the feasibility study follows the Memorandum of Understanding of Equinor, with its partners Vattenfall and Gasunie, to evaluate the possibilities of converting Vattenfall's gas power plant Magnum in Eemshaven into a hydrogen-powered plant.

Building on the engineering company's expertise in hydrogen, reformer technology and CO2 capture, the study will focus on the objective of selecting the most effective reformer technology for hydrogen production together with a suitable CO2 capture technology, the company announced. Jacobs will also deliver the conceptual design of the plant as a basis for economic evaluation and further project definition.

In order to avoid CO2 emissions from the hydrogen production process, up to three million tons per year of CO2 will be captured and then liquefied for ease of transportation to Norway, where it will be injected and stored in an off-shore reservoir. The first of three Magnum plant units should be converted to run on hydrogen by early 2024.
