ENGlobal Signs $20 Million-Plus Contract to Supply Modular Hydrogen Plant for Renewable Diesel Facility

Houston, Nov. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ENGlobal Corporation (NASDAQ:ENG), a leading provider of engineered modular process and automation systems, today announced it has signed an agreement valued in excess of $20 million to supply process modules that will be used to construct a complete hydrogen production facility. The total sum expected under this contract could exceed ENGlobal’s $25.8 million revenues for the first half of 2019, with the Company’s scope of work potentially being increased over the 18-month project duration.
ENGlobal’s compact plant will be a major component of a grass roots renewable diesel facility with an expected maximum production of 10,000 barrels of renewable diesel per day. ENGlobal’s services will include engineering, detailed design, procurement, module fabrication and automation, with other project responsibilities such as field construction being handled by others.
The hydrogen unit design utilizes Haldor Topsoe technology. This highly efficient synthesis gas process consumes approximately 20% less feed and fuel gas than conventional hydrogen plants, and produces no excess steam, leading to substantially lower operating costs and a far smaller carbon footprint. It will mark the first time this innovative technology will be used in the United States, after more than 40 successful implementations worldwide.
“This agreement is a significant event in the history of ENGlobal,” said Chairman and CEO William A. Coskey, P.E. “Not only does it introduce to the U.S. market an efficient and environmentally-friendly syngas process, it also validates our strategic shift toward providing higher-revenue modular process systems that utilize differentiated technology. We fully expect this win to greatly enhance our ability to secure additional modular systems business using this and other related technologies.”
Mr. Bruce Williams, Senior Vice President of ENGlobal stated, “I am proud to be part of the excellent and mutually beneficial working relationship we have in place with Haldor Topsoe. The jobs we are currently proposing range from $25M to $125M and typically involve renewable fuels, refining, chemicals and fuel cell applications. ENGlobal offers a full range of capabilities to engineer, fabricate and automate these plants, with each application realizing significant cost and schedule benefits through the company’s modular execution strategy.”
Mr. Coskey said he expected to announce details on future contract opportunities “in the near future.”
