Technip Energies wins contract for H2 production unit at bp’s Kwinana biorefinery

Technip Energies has been awarded a significant contract by bp for a H2 production unit at its Kwinana biorefinery in Western Australia, in support of the planned project to produce sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and biodiesel from bio feedstocks.

The contract covers engineering, procurement and fabrication (EPF) of a modularized H2 production unit with a capacity of 33,000 normal m3/hr, using Technip Energies’ SMR proprietary technology. H2 is used for the conversion of bio feedstocks into biofuels such as SAF and biodiesel. The unit will be capable of producing H2 from either natural gas or biogas produced by the Kwinana biorefinery.

It is planned to integrate with the site’s existing import terminal operations and plans for green H2 production, which are currently being assessed. The Kwinana Renewable Fuels project is one of five biofuel production projects bp has planned globally.

Loic Chapuis, SVP Gas & Low-carbon Energies of Technip Energies said, “We are pleased to build on our global leadership in the delivery of H2 production units to support bp’s expansion of its biofuels and SAF businesses. By leveraging our expertise in modularization and proprietary H2 technology, we are committed to making this project an industrial success.”
