Wood Group to collaborate on Standard Gas’ projects development.
Standard Gas and Wood Group UK Limited are progressing a partnership to install and implement the testing of the first SG100 plant (SG100.01) and collaborate on the rollout of further plants.
Standard Gas’ Technical Director, Laurence Sharrock, says: “Our companies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work towards Wood becoming a strategic operating and delivery partner for Standard Gas, focusing on engineering, procurement, and plant installation, which includes the balance of plant and equipment needed for full SG100 operation.”
Construction of Standard Gas’ first SG100 is nearing completion at Scottow Enterprise Park, near Norwich, Norfolk, and will be followed by extensive testing procedures, including a Factory Assessment Test (FAT) and a Site Acceptance Test (SAT). Wood will provide SAT testing to confirm the FAT performance and integrity of the SG100.01 once its systems are installed on the chosen site.
Together, the two companies will also explore the potential for Wood to become a contracted strategic provider of Lifecycle Asset Management Solutions to Standard Gas in the rollout of further SG100s. As Laurence explains, “This would include Wood acting as one of our outsourced operating partners, and providing engineering, procurement, and construction management services ranging from operations and maintenance optimisation to plant modifications. It’s important that we identify, and work with, leading, ‘best in class’, strategic partners like Wood to ensure a successful deployment of our Standard Gas technology throughout the UK and Europe.”
Ellis Renforth, President of Operations for Europe, Middle East, and Africa at Wood said: “Wood is delighted to work with Standard Gas, providing life cycle asset management solutions to support the development and rollout of its carbon reduction SG100 technology.”
Wood is a global leader in consulting and engineering, helping to unlock solutions to critical challenges in energy and materials markets. Wood provides consulting, projects and operations solutions in 60 countries, employing around 35,000.
TRANSITION TO NET ZERO WITH OUR CARBON-REMOVING TECHNOLOGY
Carbon Negative Energy: Each year, a single SG100 plant can generate up to 40,000 MW hours of carbon-negative power, enough for around 10,000 homes, offices or commercial properties, as well as for the transportation sector and wider industry.
Carbon Reduction: It will remove up to 16,000 tonnes of CO2e – equivalent to the annual carbon emissions of 5,000 cars. With electrolysis, a plant processing biogenic waste will generate over 650 tonnes of green hydrogen. And the SG100 closes the waste management loop, offering a better low carbon alternative to landfill and incineration.
Carbon Capture: TheSG100 technology also generates ‘biochar’ and ‘carbon char’, a black, granular, dust-like co- product that can be sequestered in valuable agricultural, environmental, and industrial applications.
