FEED completed for Phase 1 of EverWind’s Nova Scotia hydrogen hub

Canada’s EverWind Fuels has completed the Front-End Engineering Design for the first phase of a CAD-6-billion (USD 4.44bn/EUR 4.09bn) green hydrogen and ammonia production project in Nova Scotia.

The finalised FEED, along with Front-End Loading Engineering, is a major milestone for the project development, EverWind said on Wednesday. The experience gained through 110,000 hours of engineering will be instrumental in the future phases of the Point Tupper development, it added.

The FEED and FEL-3 were delivered by engineering and construction contractor and consultant Black & Veatch.

In Phase 1, EverWind aims to produce 240,000 tonnes of ammonia per year from a site at Point Tupper, Port Hawkesbury municipality. The company last year bought three wind farm projects it will develop to help power phase one of the hydrogen facility and expects to bring them online and produce first hydrogen in 2026.

The hydrogen hub’s output will be supplied to German energy majors E.on SE and Uniper SE.

The project secured environmental assessment approval in February 2023 and is on track to enter construction later this year. (April 4, 2024)
