- SWECO engineering consultancy to support Powerhouse technology in Poland
Powerhouse Energy Group plc (AIM: PHE), the UK technology company commercialising hydrogen production from waste plastic, is pleased to announce the engineering consultancy, SWECO, has been appointed to prepare concept design and an Environmental Impact Assessment report for the waste-to-hydrogen project in Konin, Poland.
Hydrogen Utopia International Ltd., through its Polish subsidiary Hydropolis United sp. z o.o, signed an agreement with SWECO on June 9th 2021.
This appointment follows the non-binding Heads of Terms which Powerhouse Energy Group plc (AIM: PHE), signed with HUI in November last year for the application of its technology in Poland.
Tim Yeo, Executive Chairman of Powerhouse Energy said: “We are delighted SWECO has been appointed to help rollout Powerhouse Energy technology in the city of Konin, Poland. The rollout in Europe of Powerhouse Energy technology is underway and it will soon be helping Poland on their clean energy transition, helping it meet its net zero targets”.
Dariusz Czerniak, SWECO, Director, Energy Department said: “It is our privilege to work closely with Hydrogen Utopia International on the PHE DMG® system, as it is a novel, 4.0. technology. We believe that the DMG® solution can tackle the global growing plastic waste problem. The DMG® system will also enhance the transition of the hydrogen economy and we are proud to be a part of this exciting future for Poland”.
Aleksandra Binkowska, CEO of Hydrogen Utopia International said: “The DMG® system is a global revolution and it is reassuring to have SWECO on my side to build the first one in Poland. I am sure that this is just the beginning of a long-standing and prosperous alliance between the two Companies. The ultimate goal is to build at least ten systems in Konin in order to create the first Polish Centre of Hydrogen. It was my vision and it is a privilege to turn this vision into reality together with SWECO”.
Earlier this year Powerhouse Energy Group plc (AIM: PHE), also agreed to sign non-binding Heads of Terms with Hydrogen Utopia International (“HUI”) with a view to granting an exclusive non-transferable licence for the application of its DMG® technology in Greece and Hungary.
