Mercury is developing one of Ireland’s first co-located onshore wind farm and hydrogen electrolysis plants. A 75MW wind farm will power an electrolyser plant generating green hydrogen. Black & Veatch’s initial role in the project has been the feasibility studies that inform all aspects of the hydrogen development.
Black & Veatch’s early involvement has been to help Mercury understand which combination of electrolyser technology and size, as well as hydrogen storage and transport options – and water supply alternatives – best meets its business goals for the project. This is being achieved through the development of multiple scenario studies and conceptual site layouts. Once the optimal configuration is identified, Black & Veatch will develop an outline design for the facility that is sympathetic to the local surroundings; and support engagement with the local community, as well as work to ensure the plant’s safe operation.
