Initial work begins on Australia’s first large-scale green-hydrogen plant

Xodus Group Ltd. has been selected by Infinite Green Energy (IGE, formerly Infinite Blue Energy) to carry out initial phase one work for Australia’s first large-scale 100% green hydrogen plant.

The $300-million Arrowsmith Hydrogen Project secured investment earlier this year. Located 320km north of Perth, it is projected to produce 23 tons of green hydrogen a day using solar and wind energy.

Xodus’ Perth team will use its previous international experience to deliver a preliminary environmental impact assessment (EIA) and environmental impact identification (ENVID) as well as ad hoc environmental support, including stakeholder consultation.

Xodus will also offer GIS support and manage permits and the flora and fauna surveys for the proposed site, undertaken by a third party.

Naomi Kerp, Principal Environmental Consultant at Xodus said: “IGE  is at the forefront of green energy in Australia and having worked with the senior team on previous projects, we are excited to be supporting them again with our energy experience and expertise. Projects like this can help establish Australia as a global leader in the production and supply of zero-emissions hydrogen fuel so it’s fantastic for us to be part of it from the very beginning.”
