TritenIAG is a project development and management company who has agreed to provide the necessary support for the Nujio’qonik’s front end engineering design (FEED) study, which will help the project to significantly advance and fill its major role.
The Nujio’qonik’s project is focused on the production of a green hydrogen and ammonia facility, intended for the Canadian west coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. It will play a major role in being the country’s first commercial, large-scale facility, with capacity to produce an estimated 250,000 tons of hydrogen annually. The CD$17bn project will do this through the use of a 3GW wind farm, which will provide power to the 1.5GW electrolysers. This will result in the production of commercial green hydrogen and ammonia.
Not only will this development be the country’s first commercial, large-scale facility, but it also aligns with the agreement held between Canada and Germany, which involves Canada stimulating hydrogen production by 2025. This will then provide Germany with enhanced energy security through a supply of clean energy which is emission free.
Project Nujio’qonik has also been help by a recent investment of $50m from SK ecoplant, this investment enabled Nujio’qonik to complete its pre-FEED study. They then continued in their development by submitting a comprehensive Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and also received approval of World Energy GH2’s Crown land application.
This shows that the project is an important advancement for the hydrogen power sector and this was emphasised through the number of people who met to agree on this deal. Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, and Germany’s Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, visited Newfoundland and Labrador met in August 2023, to finalise the hydrogen deal. All parties were in agreement that this project is an innovative and integral advancement for the industry.
