KBR and Argus have been awarded a contract to conduct a feasibility study on hydrogen imports and downstream applications for Singapore.
The study will assess the possibility of deploying hydrogen as a long-term cost-competitive emissions reduction solution across the country. The study will also look at potential sources of hydrogen to import to Singapore based on availability, cost, technical feasibility and supply security up to 2050.
KBR will run a series of workshops and consultation sessions to assist the deployment of imported hydrogen in Singapore. KBR will also recommend research, development and deployment (RD&D) investment opportunities for Singapore to develop a competitive hydrogen economy.
“We are delighted to be part of this strategic project supporting a prestigious partner to explore the potential of using hydrogen as a sustainable source of energy for Asia Pacific,” said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President of Energy Solutions-Services.
“The work will be undertaken by KBR Consulting, where our strategic master-planning capability resides to help customers improve their sustainability, energy efficiency and maximise asset performance.”
“We are delighted to be working with KBR on this interesting and important project. Argus’ consulting team is well placed to research and advise on the possibility of extending hydrogen use in Singapore,” said Adrian Binks, Argus Media Chairman and Chief Executive.
