In Texas, as first announced on February 22 this year, ENG will utilize its modular execution strategy combined with its standard 6500 bpd plant design and, along with its partners, provide engineering, procurement and construction services for a complete plant designed to produce approximately 100 million gallons of sustainable aviation and diesel fuel per year from renewable feed stocks. This combination benefits their client by reducing the time from final investment decision (FID) to first fuel production, reducing cost and increasing accuracy of design and procurement.
The project is currently scheduled to be completed within approximately 24 months from FID. Additionally, because this is the second US project of its type under execution by ENG, it will benefit from lessons learned from a similar project as well as by using the same vendors and construction partners.
This second US-based plant will utilize licensed process technology from Haldor Topsoe A/S, known as their “HydroFlex” and “Hydrogen Bridge” technologies, to produce fuels with a low carbon footprint. The plant represents an expansion of ENG’s renewables project portfolio following its recent successful design, engineering, fabrication and delivery of a modular hydrogen facility valued in excess of $28 million.
Assuming the FID is made, ENG expects its scope on the current project to exceed $100 million.
