Australia’s largest green hydrogen plant advances towards execution in early 2021

Infinite Blue Energy’s (IBE) landmark green hydrogen project near Perth, Australia reached a new milestone this week with the installation of a weather monitoring system.

This means IBE now has live solar and wind data being tracked every 10 minutes at its Arrowsmith Hydrogen Project, enabling the final design of wind turbines and solar panels to be optimised for the planned production rate of 25 tonnes per day of zero carbon green hydrogen.

IBE said initial data from the Fulcrum3D SODAR (Sonic Detection and Ranging), which will support the final investment decision (FID), indicates that the Arrowsmith site, just South of Dongara, is exceptionally high in solar and wind resources, paving the way for the production of green hydrogen with zero carbon debt.

Fulcrum3D’s flagship Sodar wind monitoring system is one of only five remote sensing instruments globally considered to provide bankable wind data by leading independent consultants such as DNV-GL.
