MHI awarded FEED contract for Hydrogen Energy California project  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI; Tokyo; www.mhi.co.jp) has been awarded a contract to perform the front-end engineering and design (FEED) services for the gasification and power island of the Hydrogen Energy California (HECA) project. Funded in part by the U.S. Dept. of Energy (DOE; Washington, D.C.; www.energy.gov), the HECA project is an integrated gasification combined-cycle (IGCC) power generation plant with a fertilizer production plant utilizing syngas as feedstock. After all permits are received and all funding is in place the project could be one of the world’s first commercial-scale IGCC power plants with 90% or greater carbon capture and storage (CCS) capability. The recovered CO2 will be used in fertilizer production and for enhanced oil recovery (EOR). SCS Energy LLC (Concord, Mass.; www.scsenergyllc.com) is developing the HECA project. The plant will be built near Bakersfield in California’s Central Valley and will perform three complementary functions. The IGCC power plant will utilize America’s plentiful coal supply and petroleum coke, a by-product from the petroleum refining process, to produce hydrogen from gasified syngas to generate electricity cleanly and efficiently. A portion of the syngas…
