PMO Hydrogen-project

The hydrogen prereduction project at ETI involves the development, testing, piloting, demo and finally constructing of a fluidised bed system using hydrogen instead of coal as a reducing agent to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of titanium slag production. This very innovative approach has been recognised by the EU who included the project as part of the IPCEI-Hydrogen program. The next phases of the project are divided in 3 concurrent work streams: the development of a continuous Pilot-plant to be built and operate in Frankfurt with the selected technology partner, the FEED (PFS and DFS) of a Demo-plant to be built in Tyssedal and producing the PFS of a Full-scale plant.

The Project Manager will lead and manage the 3 parallel work streams with a team compose of internal resources and external engineering contractor. He will help select the contracting strategy with external resources and lead scope, budget, and schedule, while ensuring safety and quality standards in accordance with Eramet Project Handbook and industry best practices.

The Project Manager will report to the H2-director.
