Wood secures FEED for first large-scale green hydrogen production facility in Norway
Gen2 Energy is a Norwegian company dedicated to developing, building, owning and operating an integrated value chain for green hydrogen.
The company targets having several large-scale production facilities for green hydrogen, making it easy and cost efficient for consumers to adapt to green hydrogen.
Wood will apply its decades of hydrogen expertise and breadth of project implementation capabilities to develop the new 100MW plant – the first large-scale commercial green hydrogen production facility in Norway.
The award follows Wood’s initial conceptualisation of the plant as well as other production facilities that Gen2 Energy is developing to accelerate the distribution of hydrogen produced in Norway via zero-emission renewable energy to the UK and across Europe.
Lars Fredrik Bakke, Wood’s vice-president of Norway, said: “We are excited to support Gen2 Energy and enable the acceleration of green hydrogen production in Norway. With our deep domain expertise in hydrogen projects, we are well positioned to support the delivery of large-scale production facilities which will play a critical role in enabling a transition to a lower carbon energy mix.”
Jonas Meyer, CEO of Gen2 Energy, said: “The contract with Wood represents a milestone in Gen2 Energy's targeted work to realise large-scale production of green hydrogen in Norway.”
