Worley awarded FEED contract

Statera Energy has awarded a front end engineering and design (FEED) contract for the first phase of its ground-breaking 3GW Kintore Hydrogen project in Aberdeenshire, Scotland to Worley, a professional services company of energy, chemicals, and resources experts. Worley’s work will be led from its Aberdeen office.

Once operational it will be the largest green hydrogen project in Europe, securing Aberdeenshire’s position at the heart of the innovative green hydrogen economy while providing flexible capacity and energy security to the wider UK.

Kintore Hydrogen was a successful applicant in the UK Government’s Net Zero Hydrogen Fund (NZHF) Strand 1 competition in March 2023, receiving funding for the FEED, planning, and consenting work for the initial 500MW phase.

The project aims to harness surplus electricity generated by Scotland’s offshore wind resources to produce green hydrogen. This will play a critical role in decarbonising power generation facilities and carbon intensive industrial clusters across the country.

The North East of Scotland has historically been a global leader in the energy sector and the local expertise and skills within the region will be vital for driving the project forward.

The proposed FEED study has a target completion date in Q4 2024 and a target final investment decision in 2025. The full 3GW of production is expected to be online by the 2030s.
