We are working with industrial, academic and governmental partners to propose safe, cost effective approaches to the use of hydrogen across the energy market, for industrial and domestic power and heat as well as an alternative fuel for transport.
We have a unique blend of expertise that means we are well placed to help tackle this challenge, including:
- Intimate knowledge of the gas transmission and distribution networks and gas compression
- Experience of design and construction of hydrogen processing equipment for refineries and chemical plants
- A track record of undertaking innovative feasibility and concept design work for the process industries.
Together with Cadent Gas Ltd, Peel Energy, Atkins, BOC and the University of Chester, Costain is a founder member of the North West Hydrogen Alliance (NWHA). The aim of the alliance is to bring together the relevant organisations to highlight how the North West of England could make hydrogen energy a reality in the UK, helping to bring down the region’s CO2 emissions and supporting clean growth.
We are also sponsoring a University of Chester PhD student to conduct research into the concept of a Liverpool to Manchester hydrogen cluster, and an associated carbon capture and storage infrastructure in the East Irish Sea.
