Aberdeen’s Wood in ‘green hydrogen revolution’

Norwegian green energy firm Nel ASA said on Friday it has entered into a framework agreement with Aberdeen-based global consulting and engineering giant Wood plc to collaborate in developing and executing “large scale, complex green renewable hydrogen projects” in select regions across the world.

“As green hydrogen projects are growing in size and complexity, it is crucial for our success to have strong partners to strengthen our project management — and execution capabilities,” said Nel ASA CEO Jon André Løkke.

“This is a long-term commitment, and we look forward to working together to further strengthen our competitiveness through leveraging our experience and competence.”

Wood has operations in more than 60 countries, employing around 40,000 people.

“We are excited about the opportunity to support NEL Hydrogen as they play their part in the green hydrogen revolution, and as we unite on our commitment to create a more sustainable and cleaner energy future,” said Craig Shanaghey, Wood’s President of Operations for Europe, Middle Eastand Africa.

“We look forward to leveraging our global engineering and project implementation capabilities to support our client on their delivery of impactful solutions around the world.”

Nel ASA said the process of phasing in Wood on ongoing projects is underway.
