Grön Fuels chooses Yokogawa for North America’s largest renewable fuels complex

September 22, 2022 12:24 pm

Grön Fuels, LLC has chosen Yokogawa Corporation of America as the preferred supplier of automation technology, equipment, and services for North America’s largest renewable fuels production facility, which will be built at the Port of Greater Baton Rouge in Louisiana.

A subsidiary of Fidelis New Energy, LLC (Fidelis), Grön Fuels will develop and operate a 65,000 barrel  per day sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and renewable diesel (RD) GigaSystem™ plant serving global  offtake customers in need of low carbon transportation fuels. The GigaSystem is designed to use all  traditional renewable feedstocks, including fats, oils, and greases, as well as emerging feedstocks such as  algae oil and cover crops. The Grön Fuels GigaSystem will also include biogenic carbon capture and  sequestration (BECCS) and carbon negative power (CNP) facilities that will further reduce the carbon  intensity of the SAF and RD produced from all feedstocks. The integrated use of proven technologies will  enable carbon negative renewable fuel production. The plant is expected to start production in 2025. 

Yokogawa Group company KBC is leveraging its in-depth knowledge of traditional refining operations to  collaborate with Fidelis’ Project Management Office on work processes design and workforce  development for the Grön Fuels GigaSystem. In July, Fidelis announced an agreement with the EPC  provider for the project, and, after the final investment decision by Grön Fuels, Yokogawa Corporation of  America and KBC will deliver a broad scope of automation, information solutions, and services to  support people at all levels of the Grön Fuels GigaSystem, from operations & maintenance personnel  through to senior management. By utilizing a comprehensive suite of technologies that includes extensive  use of digital twins, the companies will enable optimization with unprecedented levels of safety, productivity, and operational performance. Support will be provided via Yokogawa’s technology center in Baton Rouge, which was opened in July this year, close to the project site. 

According to Bengt Jarlsjo, president and COO of Fidelis, “Our Grön Fuels GigaSystem in the State of  Louisiana, made up of the Grön Fuels, BECCS, and CNP facilities, uses only proven technologies from  leading global companies to provide the lowest carbon intensity SAF and RD from all traditional and  emerging feedstocks. Selecting a collaboration partner with the experience and innovation of Yokogawa was vital to meeting the goals of RACER™, our proprietary ESG-centric development, design,  engineering, and operating framework.”  

Kevin McMillen, president and CEO of Yokogawa Corporation of America, added, “The Grön Fuels  GigaSystem is perfectly aligned with Yokogawa’s sustainability goals and business direction. We look  forward to co-innovating with their team to optimize all aspects of this project, from instrumentation  through to enterprise systems, and all IT/OT requirements in between.”
