EverWind announces FEED study completion on large-scale green ammonia plant

EverWind Fuels has completed the front-end engineering design (FEED) study for its 240,000 tonne per year green hydrogen and ammonia plant.

Both the FEED and front-end loading engineering (FEL-3) studies were completed with Black & Veatch for the first phase of the project, located in Point Tupper in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Following two years of work towards FEED completion and an environmental assessment approval in February last year (2023), construction is expected to begin this year before first production in 2026.

The initiative will use PEM electrolysers and ammonia synthesis technology provided by Castle S.A to convert water from Landrie Lake and energy from newly built wind farms into green hydrogen and ammonia.

EverWind partners Membertou, Paqtnkek and Potlotek are developing the Windy Ridge, Kmtnuk, and Bear Lake wind farms, which received environmental approval ahead of operations in 2026.

Producing 240,000 tonnes per annum in its first phase, future phases will be determined based on the findings gained through the FEED study, as well as the concurrent development of a world scale green fuels project in Newfoundland and Labrador.

EverWind recently closed an $125m load from Export Development Canada to help support the development of the project, part of the company’s larger bid to develop an Atlantic Canadian green fuels hub.

EverWind’s CEO and Founder, Trent Vichie, claimed the company is committed to driving decarbonisation both worldwide and in Nova Scotia, with the Point Tupper project producing “the greenest most cost-competitive green hydrogen in North America.”

Laszlo von Lazar, President of Black & Veatch, added, “Our team remains committed to working with EverWind and its equipment providers to deliver Canada’s first large-scale green hydrogen and ammonia production safely, om-time and on-budget.”
