As part of an innovative green hydrogen demonstration project, diesel generations in the small coastal town on Denham, Western Australia, are being replaced with a 348kW electrolyser and 100kW fuel cell.
The first of its kind project will be carried out by remote energy provider Horizon Power who last week (27thNov) received $2.6m of funding from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA).
To be connected to the Denham hybrid power station system, the plant will consist of a 348kW hydrogen electrolyser with accompanying compression and storage and 100 kW fuel cell, alongside 704 kW of solar that will power the electrolyser to produce hydrogen for storage which can later be used in the fuel cell to deliver electricity when it is needed.
If successful, Horizon Power will look to scale up the solution with increased hydrogen and solar penetration and replicate the technology in other remote power systems across its portfolio.
