Global engineering and consulting group Wood has successfully delivered preliminary engineering design services for gas network operator SGN’s candidate site at Machrihanish, on the west coast of Scotland, as part of its Hydrogen 100 (H100) project.

The H100 demonstration project will initially aim to supply energy to homes in Fife, Scotland. On completion, this project will be the first of its kind to employ a direct supply of offshore wind renewable power to produce green hydrogen energy, heating up to 300 homes in the first instance.

Wood worked on the project in collaboration with the Machrihanish Airbase Community Company Business Park and Airport, which was considered as one of three possible sites to host the hydrogen production, storage, and distribution infrastructure. While H100 Fife is proposed as the site for the first hydrogen network, SGN also sees significant potential for 100% hydrogen networks in Machrihanish and Aberdeen at a later date. Read more…
