Kent wins major contract for Vertex Hydrogen
The project will unlock a low carbon future for north west England and north Wales, producing and distributing low carbon hydrogen to replace the fossil fuels used in industry, transport, and homes, and capture and store carbon dioxide.
As a part of the new contract win, Kent will optimise the design prepared for the FEED phase to meet the latest requirements for the project.
Kent has a long-standing relationship with the Vertex Hydrogen team and was part of the consortium for the Pre-FEED and FEED phases of the project.
Kent has built a solid relationship with Vertex Hydrogen.
Matt Wills, market director low Carbon and Onshore Projects at Kent, said: “We are excited to be a part of this transition and believe we have the technical and engineering skills to help deliver the project. Our ambition is to build long-term relationships with businesses that share our values and vision and together help make a difference.
“This win is a testament to our ongoing relationship with Vertex Hydrogen. In addition, it cements our position as a leading engineering and construction company in the energy transition sector worldwide.”
John Egan, director of Vertex Hydrogen, added: “We are delighted to collaborate with Kent. Vertex Hydrogen and Kent share the same commitment to playing an active role in the energy transition and service excellence, helping our clients meet their net-zero targets. So, we are actively looking for partnerships such as these that facilitate information sharing and a faster transition to net-zero.”
