Enegix Energy on Tuesday (16th March) confirmed it had selected construction engineering firm Black & Veatch to complete a feasibility study for the planned $5.4bn green hydrogen hub in Ceará, Brazil.
Touted as the “world’s largest” green hydrogen plant, producing more than 600 million kg of green hydrogen per year once operational in 2025, Enegix is developing the project, dubbed Base One, in partnership with the Government of Ceará.
The scope of Black & Veatch’s work for Base One includes technical design, supplier and technology selection, planning of execution, project time schedule, risk assessment, logistics strategy, and procurement strategy.
“Black & Veatch’s team has the capability to assess all aspects of the project, with transferable skills that cover hydrogen production, handling, transportation, storage and distribution following the highest standards for safety and efficiency,” said Wesley Cooke, Enegix founder and CEO.
“Black & Veatch is well-positioned to provide these type of services, contributing to the transition of fossil fuels to hydrogen.”
Gary Martin, a Managing Director with Black & Veatch’s Oil & Gas business, said, “Facilities such as the one proposed by Enegix in Ceará are at the heart of making hydrogen a core component of a zero-carbon global economy; so we are excited to be in a position to contribute.”
