Black & Veatch, a US company leader in critical infrastructure solutions, has recently undertaken a feasibility study for Augustus Global Investment (AGI), a Germany-based investment firm specializing in infrastructure and energy. The study focuses on the viability of generating green hydrogen in Indonesia, utilizing electrolyzers powered by renewable energy from the grid.
The feasibility study conducted by Black & Veatch includes a detailed analysis of plant configuration, technology, and preliminary cost estimates for hydrogen production and storage. The study’s findings show that the project is both technically and economically feasible, with the potential to play a significant role in Indonesia’s energy transition.
A proposed green hydrogen production facility is scheduled for construction in the Arun Lhokseumawe Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in the Aceh province of Indonesia. The plant is expected to produce 98.5 tons of hydrogen per day (TPD) and have a 300-megawatt (MW) capacity.
The estimated cost of developing the green hydrogen production plant is USD 500 million. This initiative aligns with Indonesia’s commitment to achieving carbon neutrality targets, emphasizing the development of large-scale renewable energy projects.
Black & Veatch is involved in building 245 MW of electrolysis capacity, nearly doubling green hydrogen production worldwide, including as the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) provider for the Advanced Clean Energy Storage facility in Delta, Utah, USA, which will be among the world’s most extensive industrial green hydrogen production and storage facilities.
