Worley awarded FEED for UK’s Kintore Hydrogen project


United Kingdom – Worley has been awarded a front end engineering design (FEED) contract for the first phase of Statera’s ground-breaking 3 GW Kintore Hydrogen project in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

Once operational, the project will be the largest renewable (green) hydrogen project in Europe. It will secure Aberdeenshire’s position at the heart of the renewable hydrogen economy.

The project aims to harness surplus electricity generated by Scotland’s offshore wind resources to produce renewable hydrogen, which will play a critical role in decarbonizing power generation facilities and carbon-intensive industrial clusters across the country.

FEED study

The proposed FEED study has a target completion date in 2024 and the project will be ready for a final investment decision in 2025. The full 3 GW of production is expected to be online by the 2030s.

The Kintore Hydrogen project will use electrolysis technology to produce renewable hydrogen from surplus electricity generated by Scotland’s offshore wind resources.

The Kintore Hydrogen project has the potential to make a significant impact on the UK’s energy transition and its net zero ambitions. Renewable hydrogen can be used to decarbonize a wide range of sectors, including power generation, industry, and transport.
