KBR and Shell to develop facilities that integrate lithium-ion battery storage and green hydrogen electrolysis production at MW scale, Cutting Edge Offshore Energy Storage for CrossWind.
KBR (NYSE: KBR) announced it has been awarded a contract to provide engineering services for an innovative offshore energy storage project for CrossWind, a joint venture (JV) between Shell and Dutch utility company, Eneco.
KBR will perform a front-end engineering design of the baseload power hub (BLPH) for the Hollandse Kust (north) wind farm located offshore Netherlands.
KBR and Shell will design and develop facilities that integrate lithium-ion battery storage and green hydrogen electrolysis production at megawatt scale. The design will enable hydrogen production and electricity storage in periods of high-power production and will convert hydrogen to electricity, via a fuel cell, during periods of lower power production.
Jay Ibrahim, president of KBR Sustainable Technology Solutions, said: “KBR is extremely pleased to be involved in this sustainable energy project.
“To solve the current global ‘energy trilemma,’ the world needs an energy mix that relies more on wind, solar and nuclear power.
