AVEVA and Newpoint Trillium Management announce partnership for clean hydrogen project

AVEVA announced a strategic partnership with Newpoint Trillium Management, LLC creating a digital twin for their clean hydrogen and manufacturing projects to reindustrialize the former Department of Energy sites in Ohio and Kentucky as well as projects throughout Central Appalachia. 

Trillium has selected the AVEVA Connect platform and series of EPC 4.0 solutions to create one unified, data-centric approach in the cloud.  With EPC 4.0, engineering data is stored in a single trusted data hub in the cloud, entire processes can be tracked in a digital environment from the engineering and design stage to procurement and construction, through the final handover, and into operations and maintenance as the data core for the Digital Twin for an operating plant.

“We are thrilled to be collaborating with Newpoint Trillium as they launch their pioneering approach to this integrated hydrogen project," said Noel Phillips, Senior Vice President of the Americas at AVEVA.  “By using proven process technologies and recognized digital best practices, this innovative project approach exemplifies what’s possible with today’s digital tools to realize a more efficient project lifecycle that minimizes risk, raises efficiency, and advances our collective sustainability journey.”

A cloud-hosted, data-centric strategy provides a single platform around which all engineering disciplines and stakeholders can align. By integrating all engineering tools, users have access to a unified viewpoint ensuring project delivery is more efficient and transparent during every step of the project. Teams can better collaborate, and risks are identified earlier in the process and mitigated.

“A commitment to developing a robust Digital Twin from the engineering stage all the way through operations and maintenance has been a central tenet of our development philosophy from our earliest days.  AVEVA, and parent company Schneider Electric have been terrific partners through the preliminary phases of project development, working with us to help crystallize our vision,” said Rich Hamilton, CEO of Newpoint Trillium Management, LLC.  “Moving forward, we envision a relationship that grows and strengthens just as our projects do.  We are convinced that this partnership with AVEVA and our overall digital strategy are key levers to the success of our projects as we work hard to bring jobs to Central Appalachia.”  

This $1.5B venture will establish a world-class 500 metric tons per day decarbonized clean hydrogen production, sustainable power generation, and closed-loop manufacturing complex in the Central Appalachia region of Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia.

Technology and project development is being spearheaded by Trillium. Working together with economic development organizations throughout SE Ohio, NE Kentucky, and SW West Virginia, Trillium is determining the final site for our first project.  Poised to drive significant economic growth and provide a blueprint of sustainable industrial development, the initiative marks a pivotal moment in the reindustrialization efforts for the region. Building on more than a decade of planning and development efforts, Trillium will create more than 1,900 jobs during its construction phase and generate over $346 million in local economic impact. The long-term vision includes the addition of 237 operations and maintenance jobs, contributing nearly $200 million annually to the regional economy.
