Techno-economic analysis of the Power-to-MeOH plant on an offshore platform
The use of offshore locations holds great potential for the switch to renewable energies, as wind has a higher availability here. With long transportation routes to land, it would be conceivable to produce PtX products offshore. However, there is currently a lack of technical analysis and detailed cost calculations for these applications.
As a master student in our team, you will play a crucial role in the techno-economic analysis (TEA) of the Power-to-MeOH plant being built on an offshore platform. The main product is the fluctuating electricity from the offshore wind turbine, which is used for H2 generation by proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzer. The fluctuation makes H2 not always available for MeOH production. In this case, an operating strategy for the offshore plant is necessary. In addition, the technical suitability for partial load operation (30 %, 50 %, and 70 %) will be investigated. The plant will be modeled in a process simulation software and the simulation results form the basis for the calculation.
This role involves conducting a comprehensive process simulation to analyze this innovative technology techno-economically. In addition, sensitivity analyses of some technical design variables on techno-economic results will be carried out.
Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development. Our unique infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalleled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives. Our human resources policy places great value on a healthy family and work-life-balance as well as equal opportunities for persons of all genders (f/m/x). Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
