thyssenkrupp Uhde signs engineering service contract with Hive Energy for a 1200 tpd Green Hydrogen / Ammonia Production Plant, in Spain

  • Pre-FEED to progress the engineering development for the “ALBAMED I project”
  • Proven RHAMFS® methodology for concept optimization of green ammonia plants

thyssenkrupp Uhde has been engaged by Hive Energy Limited to deliver a Pre-FEED to support the development of its first Green Hydrogen / Ammonia Production Plant in Spain. The Pre-FEED has been awarded following a comprehensive techno-economic study performed in 2022, for the power-to-ammonia facility using thyssenkrupp Uhde’s proprietary RHAMFS® methodology.

The key goal for the Pre-FEED is to enhance the technical concept and commence key engineering activities for the plant. thyssenkrupp Uhde will base the Pre-FEED on its dynamic uhde® ammonia synthesis technology, which has been specifically developed to tackle the unique challenges of dynamic ammonia production and provide integration engineering for the process facility. The Pre-FEED will allow Hive Energy to advance through the following commercial and regulatory phases of the project development.

Dr. Cord Landsmann, CEO thyssenkrupp Uhde, said: “We at thyssenkrupp Uhde are making a significant contribution to the green transformation. With our technologies and new partnerships like this one with Hive Energy Limited, we are building a sound business case for this ground-breaking green energy project. This is another important step towards a sustainable and climate-friendly production of green ammonia.”

Shirvine Zhang, Head of Hydrogen and Hybrid Energy at Hive Energy Limited commented: “Hive’s mission is to implement sustainable and clean technologies to mitigate the impact of climate change. We look forward to progressing this project with world-class and equally climate-minded companies, like thyssenkrupp Uhde, to support the energy transition.”
