Plans for a 5GW solar and wind farm in Western Australia that will produce renewable hydrogen for potential export to Asia took a step forward today (16th Nov).
Hydrogen Renewables Australia, the company behind the plans, said it has partnered with fund managers Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) on its Murchison Renewable Hydrogen Project.
The large scale, export orientated green hydrogen project is located on the 126,000-hectare Murchison House Station near Kalbarri.
Aiming to provide large scale hydrogen export to the Asian markets – notably Japan and Korea, the project will be powered by combined wind and solar power generation and utilise desalinated water.
“Our partnership with CIP will enable the Murchison Renewable Hydrogen Project to proceed with its planned development to assess the feasibility of producing competitive hydrogen exports for the Asian markets,” affirmed Hydrogen Renewables Australia Executive Chairman Terry Kallis.
