Total Eren and Province Resources have teamed up to explore the development of a potential 8GW green hydrogen project in the Gascoyne region, Western Australia.
Such commitment was unveiled today (19th April), with the duo signing a four-month long Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to combine knowledge and expertise for the development of the proposed HyEnergy Zero Carbon Hydrogen™ Project (HyEnergy).
According to a statement, the plant will be equally owned by Total Eren and Province with development of the integrated hybrid renewable energy capacity led by Total Eren. Each party will bear its own costs during the MoU.
“Given the recent drive by state and federal governments to quickly develop and advance the green hydrogen industry in Australia, I am confident this project will be of strategic national importance,” said David Frances, Managing Director at Province,
“Province is excited to have a global renewable energy leader such as Total Eren as a partner with the technical and financial capability to help Province deliver this project as part of the backbone of the nation’s hydrogen strategy.”
“Total Eren is pleased to partner with Province on this ambitious green hydrogen project. This new step demonstrates our strong commitment to the Australian market towards the decarbonisation of the country and is also a concrete opportunity to kick-off our hydrogen strategy worldwide,” added Fabienne Demol, Executive Vice-President and Global Head of Business Development of Total Eren.
“After solar, wind, and storage, we believe hydrogen is the next step of growth of renewable energies. We are determined to leverage our development and technical skills to make our first of several hydrogen projects in Australia a success.”
Green is the new gold for Province Resources
Did you miss this? Just last month H2 View spoke exclusively with Province Resources about its HyEnergy Zero Carbon HydrogenTM Project.
Green is the new gold for minerals exploration firm Province Resources which unveiled its vision to create Australia’s first green hydrogen project in February. It’s still early days but since announcing the plans, interest in the project, which could produce 60,000 tonnes of green hydrogen in the Gascoyne region of Western Australia, has skyrocketed.
Dubbed the HyEnergy Zero Carbon HydrogenTM Project, it was revealed by Province Resources as part of an acquisition and proposes to generate 1GW of renewable energy to produce green hydrogen and green ammonia. The company says the project’s close proximity to key infrastructure means it’s capable of supplying domestic and international markets.
