05 Nov KGL Selects io Consulting to perform Preliminary FEED services for the NewGen Hydrogen Facility
Kenesjay Green Limited (Ltd.) has selected the global engineering consulting firm io Consulting to perform Front End Engineering Design (FEED) work for the planned NewGen Limited Carbon Neutral / Green Hydrogen Project with 27,200 mtpy production capacity. Scheduled for completion in 2025, this will be the first electrolysis-based hydrogen production facility to be built in Point Lisas, Trinidad, and one of the first of this scale in the world.
This decision follows the conclusion of an evaluation of proposals submitted by a number of internationally renowned engineering contractors, which were received in response to a Request for Proposal (RFP) for FEED services issued in Q2 2021.
This carbon-neutral hydrogen will be used by the local Tringen Ammonia Facility to decarbonize its existing operations and provide a new source of hydrogen for ammonia production. The NewGen plant will provide some 20% additional hydrogen feedstock required for the ammonia plant, becoming one of the first commercially viable new hydrogen production facilities globally.
Richard Dyson, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of io Consulting, stated “our team of highly experienced industry experts is passionate about the new possibilities for Hydrogen in both transforming the energy sector with cleaner inputs and accelerating the decarbonization thrust. We look forward to working with the NewGen Team on this project, not only for what it brings to Trinidad and Tobago’s Energy Sector, but also to the World, as it is proof that we can be carbon neutral and industrial at the same time. We will ensure close communication with KGL as Project Owner and Developer, to ensure that the FEED-related requirements are addressed in a timely and professional manner.”
io Consulting is commencing its FEED-related work with NewGen, by initiating the final selection of a suitable Electrolyser Technology Supplier, since the Electrolyser OEM Supply is a major component of the design for the overall NewGen Facility.
