ABB, Worley and IBM collaborate on green hydrogen solutions
The planned collaboration aims to develop an integrated, digitally enabled solution for facility owners to build green hydrogen assets more quickly, cheaply, and safely, and operate them more efficiently.
Green hydrogen is a form of clean energy made from water through electrolysis, which is powered by renewable energy.
Under the collaboration, Worley will provide engineering, procurement, and construction expertise across all stages of the project.
ABB will provide offerings for electrical infrastructure, automation, operations digitalisation and optimisation, and energy management.
IBM will provide systems integration services, as well as data framework and management solutions.
"This collaboration aims to help turn net-zero solutions into reality. It will build on the key learnings of our ground-breaking Ambition to Reality paper, written in collaboration with Princeton University. By fast-tracking and standardising how we engineer-design-operate, this collaboration is expected to reduce the levelised cost of green hydrogen and help our customers to decarbonize their operations further," says Chris Gill, senior vice president of Low-carbon Hydrogen at Worley.
"Hydrogen is at the heart of the energy transition and is essential to decarbonizing a wide range of hard-to-abate industries. Together with Worley and IBM, we're dedicated to enable a new concept to accelerate the adoption of low carbon hydrogen and efficiently meet the growing demand. Complementing our partners expertise with our electrification, automation and digital solutions, we will aim to enable lower production costs through smart, safe and sustainable operations," added Bruno Roche, vice president, energy transition at ABB Energy Industries.
