Wood and SGN to accelerate UK hydrogen plans

Wood is working with a gas distribution company, SGN, to accelerate plans for key hydrogen transmission infrastructure in Scotland and southern England that supports the UK’s commitment to Net Zero by 2050.
Over the next 12 months, Wood is delivering three pre-FEED studies to determine the route and design of new dedicated hydrogen pipelines and associated transmission infrastructure.
The proposed concept also repurposes existing natural gas infrastructure, which will link hydrogen producers with energy users seeking to use hydrogen to lower their carbon emissions.
The H2 Caledonia project combines two pre-FEED projects in Scotland’s Central Belt and Fife’s East Coast. These projects will explore the development of low-carbon hydrogen production across Scotland, and will integrate with the ongoing Aberdeen Vision study, where Wood is also completing the pre-FEED.
In central southern England, the H2 Connect project will develop an optimal design to connect a hydrogen network in the area. The project will focus on the development of hydrogen infrastructure and imports in the Southampton/Solent region, and future expansion plans for hydrogen production and storage.
