EPCC Contractor Sought

An EPCC contractor for a 125km hydrogen pipeline is required by gas distribution company Cadent. Plans are to build a pipeline to transport hydrogen to northwest industrial users to reduce the reliance on fossil gas.

As part of the HyNet low carbon cluster this will be the UK’s first 100% hydrogen pipeline at scale.

The exciting opportunity to provide engineering procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) services for the first 100% hydrogen pipeline at scale in the UK was released at the end of July 2022 and will be the first step in procurement of these services.

It is predicted that the pipeline will consist of 125km of underground pipeline including high pressure steel pipelines and associated lower pressure spurs, including hydrogen above ground installations (HAGIs).

A single entity (which may include JVs or consortia) to deliver the full EPCC scope including engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the new pipeline network.

Supplier events are planned by Cadent for November and December in order to link shorlisted EPCC bidders with local suppliers and small and medium sized businesses in the northwest.
