Japanese company wins FEED contract for green hydrogen project in Malaysia

JGC, a Japanese company, has secured the front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for a green hydrogen and methylcyclohexane (MCH) project proposed by compatriots ENEOS and Sumitomo in Malaysia.

ENEOS and Sumitomo, in collaboration with SEDC Energy, a company operated by the state government of Sarawak, East Malaysia, aim to establish a CO2-free hydrogen supply chain. This involves producing CO2-free hydrogen from renewable energy sources, such as hydroelectric power plants, and converting it into MCH for marine transportation to Japan.

The green hydrogen plant in Sarawak is expected to produce approximately 90,000 tonnes per annum of CO2-free hydrogen, with 2000 tonnes per year allocated for local users.

JGC highlighted MCH as one of the most efficient forms of hydrogen transportation, being a liquid at room temperature and pressure and having one 500th the volume of hydrogen gas. It is characterized by ease of handling, storage, and transportation.

JGC has been involved in the project since its early stages, beginning with the feasibility study. While the financial terms and duration of the FEED contract were not disclosed, JGC attributes the award to its “outstanding engineering technology and project execution capabilities.”
