Infinite Blue to supply green hydrogen to Aussie fertiliser producer

September 21 (Renewables Now) - Australia-based Infinite Blue Energy Pty Ltd has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to supply domestic energy and fertiliser company Strike Energy (ASX:STX) with green hydrogen from a commercial-scale facility in Western Australia.

The green hydrogen will support Strike Energy’s Haber urea manufacturing plant near Geraldton, which will require up to 390 tonnes of green hydrogen daily to expand its own on-site production.

Infinite Blue Energy said last week it will cover its commitment under the MoU with supplies from its Arrowsmith hydrogen complex. Planned for a site in Dongara, about 320 km (198.8 miles) north of Perth, the facility will have the capacity to produce up to 265 tonnes of green hydrogen per day, relying on a hydrolysis process powered by 1,314 MW of solar panels and 1,030 MW of wind turbines. The power plans will be coupled with 110 MW of battery storage.

First hydrogen production from the site is targeted in late 2024. The overall capacity will be installed in three phases, the first one of which will produce 25 tonnes of green hydrogen daily. The project developer previously said it has agreed to source electricity from wind farms owned by Denmark’s Vestas Wind Systems.

A demo facility will produce 5 tonnes per day, Infinite Blue said.
