KBR (NYSE: KBR) announced today that it has been awarded a study to help establish a green hydrogen market in Trinidad and Tobago as part of an ongoing technical cooperation financed by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
Under the terms of the contract, KBR will analyze strategies for maximizing opportunities to establish a green hydrogen economy in Trinidad and Tobago, undertaking supply and demand dynamics for green hydrogen generation, transportation, and end use applications.
