Worley selected to design Liquid Wind's first eFuel facility
Worley will provide Basic Engineering services for one of the world’s first commercial-scale eMethanol facilities. Worley is a leading supplier of engineering, procurement and construction services. Their extensive experience and standardised approach will support in designing a facility concept that can be efficiently replicated to establish 500 eMethanol facilities by 2050.
Worley will provide front-end engineering design services for the eMethanol facility which will be constructed in Örnsköldsvik, on the north-east coast of Sweden. They will support the Liquid Wind Consortium to plan the efficient integration of the technology and the integration with the host power station, Övik Energi. Worley brings extensive experience with similar projects, including hydrogen, carbon capture and eFuel. The Consortium also includes Alfa Laval, Carbon Clean, Haldor Topsoe and Siemens Energy.
Liquid Wind plans to establish 500 facilities by 2050 and the collaboration with Worley will support this ambition. Worley will, together with the consortium partners, design a standardised and modular facility concept, that can be efficiently replicated and assembled for subsequent flagships. During the design phase a digital twin will be established using a COMOS engineering database.
“Synthetic fuels will play a significant role in the future of transportation and in the decarbonization of several other industries,” said Bradley Andrews, President at Worley. “We are committed to delivering a more sustainable world and we look forward to helping Liquid Wind achieve its sustainability goals and ambitions to bring renewable methanol to market at scale.”
“Worley has extensive, relevant experience and we are confident they will be a valuable partner in developing standardised and replicable eMethanol facilities,” said Claes Fredriksson, CEO and Founder at Liquid Wind. “Their experience with a modular approach will support in keeping costs down and increasing our speed to market. This together with our digital twin strategy will enable the rapid replication of facilities, which is needed to meet the growing demand for carbon neutral liquid fuel”.
Construction of the first facility is planned for early 2022, with eMethanol available from early 2024.
