Sweden – Worley will provide Basic Engineering services for one of the world’s first commercial-scale eMethanol facilities.
Worley will provide front-end engineering design services for the eMethanol facility which will be constructed in Örnsköldsvik, on the north-east coast of Sweden. They will support the Liquid Wind Consortium to plan the efficient integration of the technology and the integration with the host power station, Övik Energi. Worley brings extensive experience with similar projects, including hydrogen, carbon capture and eFuel. The Consortium also includes Alfa Laval, Carbon Clean, Haldor Topsoe and Siemens Energy.
500 facilities by 2050
Liquid Wind plans to establish 500 facilities by 2050 and the collaboration with Worley will support this ambition. Worley will, together with the consortium partners, design a standardized and modular facility concept, that can be efficiently replicated and assembled for subsequent flagships. During the design phase a digital twin will be established using a COMOS engineering database.
“Synthetic fuels will play a significant role in the future of transportation and in the decarbonization of several other industries,” said Bradley Andrews, President at Worley.
Construction of the first facility is planned for early 2022, with eMethanol available from early 2024.
