Canadian firm EverWind Fuels LLC has selected Black & Veatch to lead the front-end engineering design (FEED) for its first green hydrogen and ammonia production project in Nova Scotia, Canada.
The project will be located at Cape Breton Island and envisages the staged commissioning of facilities that would be capable of producing one million tonnes of green ammonia annually, EverWind Fuels said on Friday. The Halifax, Nova Scotia-based company intends to deploy electrolysers and use electricity from renewable power plants and potentially offshore wind parks. Initial production at a commercial scale is expected to be launched in 2025.
To be installed at Point Tupper, in Port Hawkesbury municipality, the first phase facility will be powered by certified green power from the Nova Scotia Power transmission system. The second stage will rely on power supplied from onshore wind farms, while future phases of the project will use electricity from offshore wind farms.
EverWind Fuel expects the Point Tupper scheme to benefit from existing port infrastructure at the selected site. It said it will service the production with its own marine logistics assets.
