This award confirms the impressive performance of Amec Foster Wheeler’s hydrogen technology as well as the proven advantages of our Terrace Wall steam reformers. The combination of Terrace Wall reformers’ capital cost-competitiveness, energy consumption efficiency, very high reliability and compact “footprint”, ideal where space is limited, especially within existing facilities, is a compelling value proposition for our customers. We look forward to working closely with Hyundai Engineering, the Engineering Procurement and Construction contractor, to deliver the hydrogen technology and steam reformer heater for this advanced gas-to-liquids facility.
