| By Mary Bailey

MAIRE (Milan, Itlay) announced that its subsidiary KT – Kinetics Technology (Integrated E&C Solutions) has been awarded an EPC contract by Eni S.p.A. (Rome, Italy) to build a hydrogen production plant at Eni’s Livorno refinery. 

The value of the contract is €123 million, and the project is scheduled for completion in 2026.

The plant to be designed and built by KT will process natural gas and biogenic feedstocks to create hydrogen for the production of biofuels for mobility at the Livorno site processing various biogenic feedstocks, mainly waste such as cooking oils and animal fats, and residues from the agribusiness industry. In addition, the plant is designed so that a residual CO2 capture unit can be implemented at a later stage.

The construction of the new unit is part of Eni’s project to convert its Livorno plant into a biorefinery.

Alessandro Bernini, MAIRE CEO, commented, “We are proud of this important achievement with Eni. MAIRE confirms once again its role as a provider of innovative technologies and integrated engineering services, contributing to the decarbonization of transport through increasing biofuel production.”
