Western Australia could be home to a new green hydrogen production plant with bp Australia set to undertake a feasibility study at its Kwinana site.
The feasibility study will focus on repurposing the Kwinana site as an energy hub that will have integrated facilities that are able to produce and distribute green hydrogen.
With the Kwinana Industrial Area widely recognised as the largest industrial cluster in Western Australia, the study will help progress the decarbonisation of industrial process by integrating green energy alternatives for the existing industrial uses.
This will help support the wider aim to decarbonise Australian industry by delivering domestic green value chains in Western Australia.
Macquarie Capital is supporting the study in addition to the Western Australian Government with funding.
Frédéric Baudry, President of bp Australia and Senior Vice-President for fuels & low carbon solutions, Asia Pacific, said, “Guided by the Federal Government’s Low Emission Technology Investment Roadmap, we are advancing bp Kwinana’s contribution to the creation of domestic green value chains and the decarbonisation of Australia’s hard-to-abate sectors, particularly heavy industry, mining and transport.
“We are excited by the role bp’s Kwinana energy hub will play in close collaboration with our partners.
“bp has a strong track record as an energy provider to the industrial area and has readily accessible land, existing infrastructure including storage and distribution facilities, and a team with extensive operational capabilities and experience.”
