AtkinsRealis lands Quebec green hydrogen job

AtkinsRealis lands Quebec green hydrogen job

MONTREAL — AtkinsRealis has announced it has been awarded a contract by TESCanada H2 Inc. to provide front-end engineering and design services for its Projet Mauricie green hydrogen hub in Quebec.

The project is targeting production of up to 70,000 tonnes per year of green hydrogen, which will be used to decarbonize industrial processes and heavy transportation in Quebec, stated a release.

As part of the project, electricity will largely be supplied by new, purpose-built renewable power generation including wind and solar farms totalling 1,000 megawatts.

Expected to be commissioned in 2028, the project is one of the largest clean hydrogen projects in Canada and it’s among the largest decarbonization projects announced in Quebec to date.

AtkinsRealis, in collaboration with specialists from BBA, will develop project plans, an execution schedule, cost estimates and environmental impact assessments, and assist TESCanada with the permitting required for the project.

AtkinsRéalis, formerly SNC-Lavalin, will also provide support engineering and field activities that involve geotechnical investigations and testing, as well as assist TESCanada with stakeholder and community engagement.

“Energy secure and affordable net-zero grids will be needed as we electrify a larger portion of our economies,” commented AtkinsRealis CEO Ian Edwards in a statement. “Green hydrogen provides an attractive clean energy option for hard-to-decarbonize sectors. We’re pleased to deliver our clean energy engineering expertise to advance the green hydrogen ecosystem and ensure a successful energy transition.”

AtkinsRéalis has worked on green hydrogen projects in the U.A.E., U.K. and U.S.
