Kent in partnership with Valmec, has been contracted for the Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) stage of the Kwinana Energy Transformation Hub (KETH), a world-first Hydrogen and LNG Production demonstration and training facility to be developed in Western Australia for Luth Eolas (LE), a subsidiary of the Future Energy Exports CRC (FEnEx).
KETH is an industrial-scale facility to research, test and demonstrate decarbonisation technology solutions for the energy industry. It comprises of a 800 kg/day green hydrogen electrolyser and a 10 tonnes/day LNG facility.
It will be a first-of-a-kind facility providing an open-access, multi-user environment for demonstrating and testing energy transition technologies at industrially relevant scale, as well as certification of equipment and training for hydrogen and LNG facility operators.
Kent was selected to prepare a FEED to support FID, with a focus on technology identification, selection and integration to a FEED design with a Class 3 Cost Estimate.
A Global Engineering Centre will support this construction-led design through the detailed design and EPC execution phase.
