04.02.2024 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

April 02, 2024 [Up Stream]-JGC of Japan has won the front-end engineering and design contract for compatriots ENEOS and Sumitomo’s proposed green hydrogen and methylcyclohexane (MCH) project in Malaysia.


ENEOS and Sumitomo, in collaboration with SEDC Energy, a company operated by the state government of Sarawak, East Malaysia, are planning to establish a CO2-free hydrogen supply chain in which the CO2-free hydrogen produced using electricity from renewable energy sources from hydroelectric power plants is converted to MCH — that JGC hailed as one of the most efficient forms of hydrogen transportation — for marine transportation to sites in Japan.

The green hydrogen plant in Sarawak will produce approximately 90,000 tonnes per annum of CO2-free hydrogen for conversion to MCH. Of the hydrogen produced, 2000 tonnes per year will be supplied to local users.

MCH is a liquid at room temperature and pressure, having one 500th the volume of hydrogen gas, and is characterised by ease of handling, including storage and transportation, noted JGC.

The contractor has been behind the project since its early days, starting from the feasibility study. The financial terms and duration of the FEED contract were not disclosed, although JGC said it believes the company’s “outstanding engineering technology and project execution capabilities”… led to the award of the FEED scope.

“By successfully completing this FEED, the JGC Group will contribute to its clients’ business expansion in the sustainable sector, including hydrogen and ammonia, and ultimately to the realisation of a decarbonised society,” said JGC.
