Key market


Hydrogen, can we unlock the full potential?

Energy demand is exponentially increasing alongside policy, industrial and societal pressure to reduce emissions. The time has come for a clean and abundant energy vector to meet growing demand as renewables costs drop and carbon pricing shifts the burden.

For over 60 years, Wood’s process technology experts have supplied hydrogen production units based on steam reforming processes. Now, with governments investing in hydrogen studies and the potential to repurpose existing energy infrastructure, the global hydrogen market is poised to grow rapidly.

This presents unique challenges and opportunities across the value chain and whether in production, distribution or upscaling industry to become hydrogen enabled, Wood can deliver on bringing hydrogen power to reality.

Reuters and Wood collaborate to discuss hydrogen. Read the whitepaper here.

    Case study
    Scottish Western Isles Ferry Transport Using Hydrogen (SWIFTH2) project
    Wood has worked at the heart of a project to discover how hydrogen generated from onshore island wind power could power ferries serving communities along the west coast and isles of Scotland. The Scottish Western Isles Ferry Transport Using Hydrogen (SWIFTH2) project is headed by the community-led Point and Sandwick Trust in collaboration with seven industry partners including Wood, and part-funded by the Scottish Government’s Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme.
