Worley Consulting has been awarded a feasibility study for a wind and renewable hydrogen project in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

The Toqlukuti’k project – a partnership between ABO Wind, Braya Renewable Fuels and Miawpukek First Nation – aims to use wind power to generate renewable (green) hydrogen for use in a local refinery, with longer term plans to generate and export green ammonia abroad.

We’re leading the study to analyze the initial project plan, facility design and cost estimates for electricity production and transmission. We’ll also assess the plans for the production and storage of hydrogen, and its derivatives. Our scope is also to review domestic and international offtake opportunities.

Exploring renewable hydrogen and green ammonia production at scale

Phase 1 of the Toqlukuti’k project is a planned 500MW onshore wind facility to supply power to a renewable hydrogen facility, to support operations at the Brava renewable fuels refinery in Come By Chance. The wind farm and hydrogen facilities will be constructed close to the refinery on government ‘crown’ land slated for wind development, which includes areas around the Isthmus of Avalon.

The subsequent phases could achieve a wind generation capacity of up to 5.2GW, to generate renewable hydrogen and ammonia. This production could help decarbonize other industries, depending on the findings of the study.

“Renewable hydrogen will play a growing role in decarbonizing challenging sectors. This project is an opportunity to use Worley Consulting’s global expertise across wind, hydrogen and ammonia to help make sustainable transformation a reality for the Come By Chance refinery and eventually, other end users,” said Chris Gill, Senior Vice President, Global Hydrogen.

“We are excited this study is moving forward and eager to work closely with Worley and ABO Wind’s own Canadian and international experts to drive the results in the best interest of the project and the province,” said Robin Reese, Managing Director, ABO Wind Canada Ltd.
