Petrofac to support Australia’s largest commercial-scale green hydrogen projectOctober 5th, 2020
Petrofac has been awarded its first ever green hydrogen front end engineering design (FEED) contract.
The London-headquartered energy service firm will work on the landmark Arrowsmith Hydrogen Project, which will become Australia’s largest commercial-scale green hydrogen complex.
Last month the company pledged its commitment to reach Net Zero emissions by 2030, with its EPS business expected to achieve Net Zero by 2025.
Under the contract, awarded by Infinite Green Energy Ltd (IGE, formerly Infinite Blue Energy), Petrofac will review the conceptual work carried out on the project to date and the execution of the FEED study.
The work will be undertaken by Petrofac’s teams in Perth, Western Australia and Woking, England.
Petrofac will draw up a design, cost and schedule estimation to support final investment decision.
Located in Western Australia, the Arrowsmith Hydrogen Project is expected to commence production in 2025 and will generate 23 tonnes of green hydrogen per day from the zero carbon energy sources of water, solar and wind.
The project is expected to drive significant growth in regional jobs, energy security and a considerable reduction in Western Australia’s carbon emissions. Petrofac is working diligently to anticipate an early production target for IGE.Full Article
