After recently completing the Safety Case update for the Hydrogenation (HGN) Plant which was subsequently approved by the Regulator, we are elated to work again with the Advanced Hydrogen Energy Chain Association for Technology Development (AHEAD).
The scope of work shall focus on undertaking a Pre-Startup Safety Review (PSSR) for the entirety of the Brunei Hydrogenation Plant planned operations as an independent third party to support AHEAD in achieving safe plant start-up.
The Advanced Hydrogen Energy Chain Association for Technology Development (AHEAD), composed of Chiyoda Corporation, Mitsubishi Corporation, Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha and Mitsui & Co., Ltd, in collaboration with strong support from the Japanese Government and Brunei Government, manages the world first Global Hydrogen Supply Chain Demonstration Project between Brunei Darussalam and Japan.
Hydrogen is produced in the Hydrogenation (HGN) Plant in Negara Brunei Darussalam utilising fuel gas supplied via pipeline from another facility. Produced Hydrogen will be converted to Methylcyclohexane (MCH) as a liquid organic carrier of hydrogen in the HGN plant and then transported by land using ISO containers from the facility to Muara port for onward transport towards Japan.
AHEAD has successfully operated the HGN Demonstration Plant using Chiyoda’s SPERA Hydrogen® Technology from January 2020 to the end of October 2020.
Plans are in place to recommence operations of the HGN Plant in September 2021. In view of the planned operations restart, a Pre-Startup Safety Review is required to be carried out based on Brunei Regulator requirements. SynergenOG has been requested by AHEAD to facilitate the PSSR which will be done soon.
