EverWind Fuels has successfully concluded the front-end engineering design (FEED) study for its green hydrogen and ammonia plant, poised to produce 240,000 tonnes annually. Collaborating with Black & Veatch, the FEED and front-end loading engineering (FEL-3) studies were finalized for the inaugural phase of the venture, located in Point Tupper, Nova Scotia, Canada. This milestone follows two years of dedicated efforts towards completing the FEED study, coupled with obtaining environmental assessment approval in February of the preceding year (2023). Anticipated construction commencement this year sets the stage for initial production slated for 2026.

The project's blueprint involves harnessing PEM electrolyzers and ammonia synthesis technology from Castle S.A to transform water extracted from Landrie Lake and renewable energy generated by newly established wind farms into green hydrogen and ammonia. EverWind's collaboration with partners Membertou, Paqtnkek, and Potlotek focuses on the development of Windy Ridge, Kmtnuk, and Bear Lake wind farms, all of which secured environmental clearance ahead of their operational launch in 2026. The initial phase targets an annual production capacity of 240,000 tonnes, with subsequent phases contingent upon insights gleaned from the FEED study and parallel advancement of a large-scale green fuels endeavor in Newfoundland and Labrador.

To bolster the project's development, EverWind recently secured a $125 million loan from Export Development Canada, underscoring the company's broader ambition to establish an Atlantic Canadian green fuels hub.

CEO and Founder of EverWind, Trent Vichie, affirmed the company's unwavering commitment to global decarbonization efforts, with the Point Tupper undertaking poised to deliver "the greenest, most cost-competitive green hydrogen in North America."

Laszlo von Lazar, President of Black & Veatch, echoed this sentiment, emphasizing their team's steadfast dedication to collaboratively ensuring the safe, timely, and cost-effective realization of Canada's pioneering large-scale green hydrogen and ammonia production facility.

EverWind stands as a premier independent developer of green hydrogen in North America. It proudly holds the distinction of securing North America's inaugural Environmental Approval for a large-scale green hydrogen initiative. EverWind has made significant strides in the design, engineering, and advancement of the initial phases of its green energy generation projects, alongside the establishment of a production facility tailored to convert this energy into green hydrogen and green ammonia.

Benefiting from strategic ownership of the deepest ice-free berth on the East Coast of North America, EverWind enjoys unparalleled access to top-tier rail, road, and pipeline networks. Our unwavering commitment to safety, exemplified by an impressive 18-year track record without a lost time injury, underscores the dedication of our highly skilled and extensively certified workforce.
