Texas engineer Fluor has been selected to fill engineering, procurement and construction management roles at a hydrogen-powered steelworks in northern Sweden.

Work on the H2 Green Steel site in Boden has begun. When complete in 2030, the mill will produce 5 million tonnes of steel a year.

The steel produced in Boden will embody 95% less carbon than steel produced using traditionally fuelled blast furnaces.

Fluor’s scope of work includes creating a melt shop, casting, rolling and finishing facilities for the project’s steelmaking plant.

Harish Jammula, the president of Fluor’s mining and metal’s arm, said: “The execution of the H2 Green Steel project will build on Fluor’s long-term presence in the steel industry, our expertise in novel, low-emissions steelmaking technologies and our strong presence in Europe.

“We are excited to be part of this important project and to support H2 Green Steel on their journey to sustainable steelmaking.”
