Worley appointed for concept design of Ireland's first green H2 production facility

Worley has been appointed by energy company EI-H2 to help develop Ireland’s first commercial scale green hydrogen production facility.

The 50-MW plant will be located in Aghada, close to the lower Cork harbour. It will see green hydrogen produced by electrolysis, powered by renewable energy. Once operational, the facility will supply over 20 t of green hydrogen per day to a diverse commercial market and will remove 63,000 t of carbon emissions annually.

The project, which once complete, will be one of the largest green energy facilities of its kind in the world, will generate job creation in the local area, and will assist in meeting the targets of Ireland’s recent Climate Bill which mandates emissions reductions of 51% by 2030.

Worley’s technical and commercial experts will be developing the concept design for the facility, utilizing best practice from similar projects around the globe  to accelerate project delivery and achieve the earliest possible commercial production date, supporting Ireland in its ambition to become a leader in green energy.

With a portfolio of future projects in the pipeline for Ireland, this first-of-its kind project marks the start of many planned developments for EI-H2.

"We are delighted to partner with Worley as we look to deliver Ireland’s first green hydrogen production facility in Aghada, County Cork. We firmly believe that Ireland is incredibly well positioned to become a global leader in green energy," said Tom Lynch, CEO of EI-H2.

The project is expected to be operational before the end of 2023.
