Green light for $300m hydrogen plant

Infinite Green Energy (IGE, formerly Infinite Blue Energy) has secured funding to build a $300m green hydrogen plant in Western Australia, which the Perth-based company says will be national first.

Located 320km north of Perth, IGE’s landmark Arrowsmith Hydrogen Project will produce 23 tonnes of green hydrogen a day using solar and wind energy.

Expected to commence in June this year, the project is expected to drive significant growth in regional jobs, energy security and a considerable reduction in Western Australia’s carbon emissions.

With federal government interest and support for hydrogen projects at an all-time high in Australia, IGE CEO Stephen Gauld believes the company is entering the market at just the right time and with the “right pedigree” to steer the industry into groundbreaking territory.
