Western Australia green hydrogen project moves a step closer to reality

first_imgWestern Australia green hydrogen project moves a step closer to reality FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renew Economy:Plans for a massive green hydrogen production facility in Western Australia are a step closer to realisation, after the proponents secured an agreement with Western Power to undertake initial studies for new transmission network link.Infinite Blue Energy is proposing to build one of the world’s largest renewable hydrogen production facilities in Western Australia, with a $350 million plan for the Arrowsmith green hydrogen project that would include 160MW of onsite wind and solar projects and the ability to produce as much as 25 tonnes of zero emissions hydrogen each day.While the Infinite Blue Energy plans to produce more than three-quarters its power needs from the onsite renewable energy projects, the company has secured an agreement to partner with Western Power to undertake initial planning work for an additional 330kV transmission network link to the proposed green hydrogen facility.The network connection would allow the project to draw upon renewables being produced elsewhere in the Western Australian grid and to continue producing green hydrogen during periods when local wind and solar availability is low.Through the cooperative agreement, both Infinite Blue Energy and Western Power will progress early studies into an upgraded transmission link between Eneabba to the site of the proposed Arrowsmith project, to be located around 300 kilometres north of Perth.Infinite Blue Energy expects that the project will produce an estimated 5,000GWh renewable electricity each year, with the prospect that some surplus power could be fed back into the grid to serve Western Australian consumers. The results of the network studies will inform Infinite Blue Energy’s final investment decision on the massive hydrogen project, which it expects to make in January next year.[Michael Mazengarb]More: Massive green hydrogen project signs network deal with Western Powerlast_img read more
