June 22 (Renewables Now) - Australia’s Infinite Green Energy, previously known as Infinite Blue Energy, has tabled plans for the installation of up to 235 MW of wind and solar power capacity to produce green hydrogen in Western Australia.

The company has submitted its proposal to the state’s Environmental Protection Authority, with the proposal to be open for comments by June 27, 2022.

Under the Arrowsmith scheme, Infinite Green plans to build a solar photovoltaic (PV) plant of between 65 MW and 85 MW in size, as well as a wind farm consisting of up to 25 turbines of 6 MW each. The capacity will be used to power a facility that will be capable of producing between 23 tonnes and 42 tonnes of green hydrogen per day. The project also comes with plans for 20 MW of battery storage capacity.

The entire complex will be sited with a 1930-ha property south of Dongarra that was previously used for sheep, cattle and goat grazing.

The developer’s plan is to transport the hydrogen to end users in the form of a compressed liquid product via hydrogen-fuelled road tankers. It intends to kick off construction works on the project in the first quarter of next year and begin production in the third quarter of 2025.

Infinite Green last month changed its name to better reflect its strategy to produce only renewable hydrogen.
