Engineering, procurement, and construction services provider Worley has been appointed by energy company EI-H2 to help develop Ireland’s first commercial scale green hydrogen production facility.
Ireland’s first green hydrogen production facility gathers pace with Worley appointed for concept design

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

The project, once complete, will be one of the largest green energy facilities of its kind in the world. It 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 per cent by 2030.

Worley’s technical and commercial experts will be developing the concept design for the facility, utilising 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” said Tom Lynch, CEO of EI-H2. “We firmly believe that Ireland is incredibly well positioned to become a global leader in green energy. At EI-H2, we believe in partnerships that last. In that context, Worley are the natural choice to develop this key infrastructure.”

Eoghan Quinn, Vice President, Power and New Energy, Worley, added that the project is an exciting opportunity for Worley to apply its vast experience in delivering the world’s most ground-breaking green hydrogen projects to the Irish market and that as more renewable energy comes online, Ireland has a strategic role to play in decarbonising Europe.

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