Topsoe selected by World Energy GH2 to supply ammonia loop for Canada’s largest renewable hydrogen plant
Topsoe has signed an agreement with World Energy GH2, a net-zero solutions provider, to provide Topsoe’s dynamic ammonia loop technology for Canada’s largest—and one of the world’s first-to-market, renewable hydrogen projects—Project Nujio’qonik. (Nujio’qonik is The Mi’kmaw name for Bay St. George)
Located in the Bay St. George region of Newfoundland and Labrador, Project Nujio’qonik was announced by World Energy GH2 in spring 2022 with an intended investment of US$12 billion to produce renewable hydrogen, also referred to as green hydrogen, to decarbonize the hard-to-abate sectors globally.
World Energy GH2 will supply 250,000 metric tons of renewable hydrogen per year to global markets at the completion of its renewable hydrogen project. The project will use wind energy power for production on the site, which is expected to begin producing hydrogen in 2025.
Topsoe’s ammonia loop technology (earlier post) will be used to generate up to 1,650 metric tons per day of renewable ammonia on the site.
World Energy GH2 is a Newfoundland and Labrador-based renewable energy company. Project Nujio'qonik is a consortium of Canadian and international partners focused on developing a cost-effective, wind energy to green hydrogen/ammonia production facility located on the west coast of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
Project Nujio’qonik aims to be Canada’s first commercial green hydrogen/ammonia producer created from 3+ Gigawatts of wind energy in one of the world’s best wind resource regions.
