Massive hydrogen project gets green light after securing $300m investment

Australia is set to see a massive expansion of renewable hydrogen production, after a $300 million project destined for Western Australia succeeded in securing investment funding.

The project is being developed by Perth-based company Infinite Green Energy (IGE, formerly Infinite Blue Energy), which is planning to build what will become Australia’s largest hydrogen production facility using supplies of wind and solar energy.

The Arrowsmith Hydrogen Project, which will be built at a facility in the town of Dongara, located 320km north of Perth, is expected to produce 23 tonnes of green hydrogen each day, powered by wind and solar.

The project is set to include its own dedicated onsite supplies of renewable electricity, with a spokesperson for Infinite Green Energy telling RenewEconomy that the Arrowsmith plant will be supplied by around 65MW of solar power, supplemented by 132MW of wind generation capacity.
