Jacobs secures green hydrogen feasibility contract in the UK

The four-month study will look at the feasibility of initially installing a 100MW electrolyser at RWE’s Pembroke Power Station to produce green hydrogen.

The study will draw on Jacobs’ global hydrogen and multi-disciplinary capability with teams involved from the UK, mainland Europe and Australia. It will also focus on how green hydrogen could be used for transport and decarbonisation activities in South Wales to support carbon reduction targets.

The green hydrogen project has the potential to grow to several gigawatts in scale and could be linked to floating offshore wind in the Celtic Sea. It is the first from RWE’s Pembroke Net Zero Centre which launched in early 2021.

“This feasibility study provides us with an opportunity to work alongside RWE to grow their innovative projects that will further move our sector to low and zero emission generation” said Jacobs People & Places Solutions Senior Vice President for Europe and Digital Strategies Donald Morrison. “This work reaffirms our 20-year relationship with RWE at Pembroke Power Station and demonstrates our ambitions for Jacobs to be at the forefront of delivering the energy transition.”

Richard Little, Pembroke Power Station Manager, added that the outputs of Jacobs’ feasibility study over coming weeks could be the first step towards the potential construction of large-scale hydrogen infrastructure at Pembroke and that hydrogen will be a game changer in the decarbonisation of heavy industry in South Wales and that RWE will be a key partner in helping achieve that.

The award is another key energy transition project in Jacobs’ growing portfolio. In 2021, the company established the Office of Global Climate Response and ESG, to deliver on its commitments to climate change through innovative solutions for its clients across energy transition, decarbonisation, adaptation and mitigation, and natural resource stewardship.

Jacobs provides a full spectrum of professional services including consulting, technical, scientific and project delivery for the government and private sector.
