Israeli renewable energy company Doral Energy Group (TLV:DORL) has become a strategic partner in the 10-MW MEG HP1 green hydrogen production project in Western Australia, it said last week.
The joint development agreement was signed with Australian green hydrogen producer Infinite Green Energy (IGE) and South Korea’s Samsung C&T Corp (KRX:028260), which in February teamed up to work on the scheme. With Doral on board, the partners will seek to take a final investment decision (FID) during the current year. The front-end engineering and design (FEED) has already been completed.
MEG HP1 envisages the installation of an electrolyser with battery storage near Northam, about 100 km northwest of Perth, to produce up to four tonnes of green hydrogen daily. The process will be powered by the 11-MW Northam solar park, which Infinite Green acquired last year.
First hydrogen from the proposed facility is expected to be produced late in the first quarter of 2025, with most of the output to be used in heavy transport via a loading terminal for local trucks. A portion of the production will be supplied to waste management companies for back-to-base refuse collection vehicles.
Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) are already in place for the off-take and binding contracts are being negotiated.
