WA Government welcomes partnership to deliver green Hydrogen

  • WA-based renewable energy company Infinite Green Energy (IGE) to team up with global tech giant Samsung C&T to develop and build Arrowsmith Hydrogen Plant
  • Arrowsmith Plant aims to deliver renewable hydrogen to local and international markets
  • Commercial scale green plant to meet growing demand for hydrogen, with production planned to commence in 2028

The McGowan Government has today welcomed Infinite Green Energy’s (IGE) announcement that it has entered a Memorandum of Understanding with Samsung C&T to develop and build the Arrowsmith Hydrogen Plant.

Located 30 km south of Dongara, the wind and solar-powered plant is forecast to produce up to 300 tonnes of green hydrogen per day, or 100,000 tonnes per year for domestic and export markets.

IGE is aiming to be Australia’s first Zero Carbon commercial Hydrogen producer.

IGE is also progressing the Northam MEG HP1, another renewable hydrogen project in development with Samsung C&T.

Comments attributed to Hydrogen Industry Minister Roger Cook:

“The McGowan Government welcomes this exciting development which sees WA progress as a significant producer, exporter and user of this emerging renewable energy source.

“Partnerships like these are vital to the delivery of the 2030 vision under the Western Australian Renewable Hydrogen Strategy and future opportunities that come with it.

“With the crucial need to diversify and decarbonise here and around the world, the McGowan Government is committed to the renewable hydrogen sector to help reduce emissions to achieve net zero greenhouse emissions.”
