Norconsult assists in the project with project management support, hydrogen expertise, site preparations and safety considerations. In addition, Norconsult also supports the client in the authority permitting process.
Norconsult has been an integral part of project management and assessed potential technical solutions for a range of hydrogen equipment. This includes, among other things, the compressor, piping and dispenser systems.
In addition, Norconsult has been heavily involved in permitting processes towards both the local and national authorities. This work includes preparation of regulatory plans, impact assessments and application for consent to the Norwegian Directorate for Civil Protection (DSB), technical security, preparedness analysis and preparedness plan, safety and automation.
Norconsult also support the client through development of the planned site through preparation of layouts, site construction and infrastructure supervision.
The project is well underway and has received a 77 million NOK grant from Enova. The next step is further expansion of the H1 pilot plant into the H15 plant in 2024, in order to become a large-scale producer of hydrogen from natural gas.
Norconsult is proud to take part in this environmentally friendly project.
