Wood forecasting future hydrogen growth after securing over 30 contracts in 2021

Engineering and consultancy services firm Wood landed more than 30 separate hydrogen awards in the first half of the year.

And the Aberdeen-headquartered company is expecting more growth in the space, with about £433 million worth of potential projects due to hit the market in the medium term.

The contract awards span green, blue and bio-hydrogen projects and further strengthen Wood’s position as a “key delivery partner” in “building out” the hydrogen economy, the firm said.

Wood is currently delivering Pre-FEED work with ADNOC on a world-scale blue ammonia production facility in Abu Dhabi to drive the development of the fuel in the Middle East.

Elsewhere, the company’s hydrogen technology is being used on the first advanced biofuels project in South America, at the Omega Green production facility in Paraguay.

The scheme aims to produce up to 20,000 barrels per day of renewable diesel and jet fuel.

Wood also entered into a three-year engineering framework agreement with Norway-based NEL Hydrogen in March to develop and execute large scale, complex green renewable hydrogen projects globally.

And last month the company became a steering group member of the Hydrogen Council, a CEO-led initiative which brings together more than 100 companies.

Andrew Stewart, executive president of strategy and development at Wood, said: “Hydrogen is a key growth area in our business strategy, and we are encouraged by the strong momentum in this market.

“Team Wood has over 60 years’ experience across the value chain from project development support through to proprietary hydrogen technology, modular equipment and engineering, procurement, and construction delivery. We have the best engineers in the world with deep domain expertise in this field and continue to invest in our technology to remain industry leading.

“As the world’s population increases the demand for clean, affordable and reliable energy is unrelenting.  Together with our clients, we’re unlocking hydrogen at pace and at an industrial scale as one of the mission critical pathways to a more sustainable future.”
