Hydrogen is an essential part of the energy mix of the future. Compared to electricity, it is easier to store and more transportable, it can achieve higher temperatures and can be used as a building block to create green fuels and chemicals. The biggest challenge is getting the whole supply chain moving, right from production, through storage and transportation on to the final industrial users. All components have to be in place and performing reliably.
Full lifecycle services
We are ready to support the full hydrogen supply chain as the partner that provides safe and cost efficient construction, maintenance and turnaround services. This can start very early by supporting overall hydrogen roadmap development and technology selection and providing O&M input into designs to ensure minimal lifecycle costs. If required, we also develop novel equipment for this up & coming industry.
Local / Regional
Masterplanning is about connecting production, infrastructure, end-user applications, regulations, social settings and their surrounding environments. It is a dynamic, long-term planning document that guides future growth and development. It can be made at the local and regional level and of course includes scenario planning to make sure that all angles have been looked at: if one component is lacking, then the whole supply chain will falter.
New technologies to produce hydrogen seem to be popping up left and right on a daily basis. Even within the ‘colours’ (grey, blue, turquoise, pink, green, greener-than-green, …) there are many patented processes, each with their own niche. Which is best suited to you? In Fluor & Stork we’re continually scanning the market to search out new technologies so that you don’t get blind sided.
Minimal lifecycle costs
We funnel our O&M knowledge from existing assets into your new asset, making sure that the right O&M procedures are in-place, the right CMMS, the right organization, the right warehouse with the right spare parts, etc. Having operational readiness will help achieve flawless start-up without “child diseases”. It will also greatly help reduce the overall lifecycle costs related to the facility.
Full suite of services
Stork’s full suite of services can be applied to all colours (grey, blue, pink, turquoise, green, greener-than-green) of hydrogen production: equipment servicing, mechanical & piping, electrical & instrumentation, inspection and industrial services. We understand this tiny molecule, have the related welding skills in-house, and make safety our #1 priority every single day.
Connecting hydrogen producers with hydrogen users is an essential part of the supply chain. These can be via new lines, but also existing lines (e.g. former natural gas) can be reused, albeit with some modifications.
We understand this tiny molecule and can help you realize the right connectivity. We also have experience in maintaining end-of-the-line hydrogen fuelling stations for urban busses, trucks and cars.
Stork has been designing and manufacturing hydrogen burners for decades, as hydrogen is often one of the many components in waste streams that get routed to waste heat boilers. Our multi-fuel burners can handle varying amounts of hydrogen, ranging from traces to 100% hydrogen.
We are currently also well underway in developing a hydrogen burner that operates with pure oxygen, opening up the way for a truly stackless boiler.

Hydrogen production: the OPEX dimension
With soaring gas & electricity prices, OPEX is more than ever a key factor in hydrogen production. The impact of O&M should also not be under-estimated: in order to achieve the industry’s rapid growth, new O&M concepts need to be embraced.
