WA calls for expressions of interest to develop renewable hydrogen hub

Western Australia is calling for global expressions of interest to develop a renewable hydrogen hub near Geraldton.

Oakajee Strategic Industrial Area (SIA) is recognised for its world-class wind and solar energy potential, which is ideal for the production of renewable hydrogen for commercial uses including advanced manufacturing, energy storage and transport, and for future export of clean energy.

Located 435km north of Western Australia’s capital city of Perth, and 23km north of Geraldton, initial assessments indicate the 4,070-hectare Oakjee SIA buffer area could generate up to 270MW of wind power and 1,250MW of solar renewable energy at internationally competitive prices.
