Strike Energy will manufacture 1.4 million tpy of low carbon urea at the Narngulu Industrial Estate at Geraldton and will require up to 390 tpd of green hydrogen to complement the renewable hydrogen produced onsite.
Infinite Blue Energy CEO, Stephen Gauld, said the signing of the MoU is evidence of the growing demand in industry for green hydrogen domestically, which reflects the growth in market potential being experienced overseas.
“The potential for renewable hydrogen as a pillar of a cleaner economic transformation is being recognised throughout the world with government policy positions and a growing commitment from large industry to decarbonise incentivising investment in large-scale hydrogen projects as carbon neutral forms of energy,” Gauld said.
“IBE is on a pathway to producing 265 tpd of green hydrogen for domestic and export markets from its Arrowsmith Hydrogen Plant in Western Australia. I am excited that we have entered into a MOU with Strike Energy as a first step to securing a long-term supply partnership with Project Haber, which currently represents the biggest industrial manufacturing opportunity for green hydrogen off-take in Australia.”
IBE will develop its Arrowsmith Hydrogen Plant in three stages with the first stage of 25 tpd of green hydrogen being produced during late 2024 with anticipated production of 5 tpd as part of its demonstration project.
Once the three stages are completed, Arrowsmith Hydrogen Plant will produce up to 265 tpd of green hydrogen from 1314MW of solar, 1030 MW of wind and 110 MW of battery energy located onsite. The 96 000 t of green hydrogen each year will displace more than 1.3 million t of CO2 emissions based on natural gas emission rates.
Arrowsmith will be a worldwide scale green hydrogen facility supporting domestic Australia and Asia Pacific from its flagship location in the Perth Basin.
