Kenesjay Green selects io consulting for FEED service

22 November 2021

Kenesjay Green Limited (KGL) has selected the project development consultancy io consulting (io) to perform Front End Engineering Design (FEED) for the 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.

io will provide early-stage engineering and design services before the final FEED award for the new hydrogen plant including the execution of the assessment of Electrolyser Supplier Proposals received in response to a NewGen Request for Quotation (RFQ) inviting offers for Technology Supply.

This decision follows the conclusion of an evaluation of proposals submitted by several internationally renowned engineering contractors, which were received in response to a Request for Proposal (RFP) for FEED services issued in Q2 2021.

The new hydrogen plant is being built around the concept of capturing waste heat from industrial power generation facilities currently located in the Point Lisas Industrial Estate and converting said heat into electrical power to be used for the electrolysis of water to produce hydrogen. Other sources of green renewable power are also being secured, and new sources are developed.

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.
