Black & Veatch to provide EPC services for clean energy storage project in Utah

WCN Editorial Team 27 Apr 2022 NORTH AMERICA ENERGY & UTILITIES

Black & Veatch has been appointed by Mitsubishi Power Americas and Magnum Development to offer engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for the Advanced Clean Energy Storage project in Delta, Utah, US.

Upon its completion, the Advanced Clean Energy Storage would become the world’s largest industrial green hydrogen production and storage facility.

The new hydrogen hub, which was announced in 2019, will be initially designed to convert over 220MW of renewable energy every day to 100 metric tonnes of green hydrogen.

The green hydrogen will be stored in two salt caverns.

Black & Veatch incoming chair and CEO Mario Azar said, “Being part of this innovative team advancing clean hydrogen as a fuel and feedstock is helping pave the way for a lower-carbon energy future that takes the energy transition farther, faster.

“Black & Veatch is committed to keeping our clients and partners ahead of the curve when it comes to managing the energy transition and meeting their decarbonisation goals.

“The Advanced Clean Energy Storage hydrogen hub is a transformative event in the development of green hydrogen, long-duration energy storage and decarbonisation at scale.”

The hydrogen equipment integration, including the 220 MW of electrolyzers, gas separators, rectifiers, medium-voltage transformers and distributed control system, will be provided by Mitsubishi Power.

Construction of the hydrogen storage hub will start this spring.

The storage hub will be located beside Intermountain Power Agency’s (IPA) IPP Renewed Project and support this 840MW, hydrogen-capable gas turbine combined cycle power plant, which is currently under construction.

In the beginning, the plant will be operated on a blend of 30% green hydrogen and 70% natural gas in 2025.

The plant will gradually expand to using 100% hydrogen by 2045.
