Aberdeen-headquartered energy services firm Wood has completed preliminary engineering design services work for gas distribution operator SGN at its Machrihanish site, on the west coast of Scotland. Part of SGN’s Hydrogen 100 (H100) project, the demonstration scheme will look to supply hydrogen to homes in Fife, with future plans to deliver to Aberdeen and the west coast. Once complete, the H100 project will supply an initial 300 households. The development will be the first of its kind to employ a direct supply of offshore wind renewable power to produce green hydrogen energy. Joe Sczurko, chief executive of Wood’s technical consulting solutions business, said: “This is a pioneering development which could make a significant contribution towards the decarbonisation of the UK’s heating sector and net zero carbon target by 2050.
