The H100 demonstration project aims to supply energy to homes in Fife, Scotland by creating renewable hydrogen at a site in Machrihanish and delivering it through SGN’s distribution network to an initial300 homes.
Wood brought together a multi-disciplinary team from across its business including environmental planning, geographical mapping, visualisation, process and pipeline engineering, renewables and hydrogen power experts for the project.
Wood Technical Consulting Solutions CEO Joe Sczurko said the project could make a significant contribution to decarbonising the UK’s heating sector.
“Wood’s track record in the technology, production, and the use of hydrogen is decades-long with a number of successful hydrogen projects delivered for clients around the world,” he said.
“Combined with our renewable and infrastructure expertise, we were well-positioned to support SGN with its ambitious H100 project at Machrihanish.”
While H100 Fife is proposed as the site for the first hydrogen network, SGN also sees significant potential for 100 per cent hydrogen networks in Machrihanish and Aberdeen in the future.
