Plans for Australian renewable hydrogen plant gain ground with EPC appointment

Plans to build a $A350 million commercial-scale renewable hydrogen plant north of Perth in Western Australia have taken a major step forward this week, after energy services company Petrofac was tapped to conduct the engineering, procurement and design for the facility.

Green Hydrogen specialist Infinite Blue Energy Group said on Monday that it had entered into an agreement with Petrofac to progress the landmark Arrowsmith project through front-end engineering design ahead of the final investment decision in early 2021.

Perth-based IBE said the Arrowsmith Plant would be built in an area with “abundant” renewable resources, and is projected to produce 25 tonnes of “zero carbon” hydrogen each day, thanks in part to what has been flagged as 85MW of onsite solar power and a supplementary 75MW of wind energy.
