Bechtel engineers

Shannon Foynes Port Company (SFPC) has selected Bechtel to update its Vision 2041 masterplan to accommodate offshore and onshore investment within and adjacent to its harbor in Ireland.

Bechtel’s role will be to assess and refresh the port’s masterplan in order to boost growth and support the region’s emerging offshore wind industry.

Bechtel will support SFPC to deliver significant growth and expansion of the port, including how it can support the offshore wind business, as well as the production of alternative shipping fuels that could transform Shannon Foynes into a leading European port.

The port is also well positioned near the Atlantic wind resource that will be essential to Ireland reaching its ambition to generate 20GW of offshore wind by 2050. The expanded facilities at Shannon Foynes would include hydrogen and ammonia production facilities for long-term energy storage and will also consider the export of the renewable energy / fuels produced.
