ENGIE greenlights Australian renewable hydrogen undertaking with Yara


ENGIE has taken the Remaining Funding Choice within the growth of one of many world’s first industrial-scale renewable hydrogen tasks, to be positioned within the Pilbara area of Western Australia.

Scheduled for completion in 2024, the primary part of the Yuri undertaking will produce as much as 640 tonnes of renewable hydrogen per 12 months as a zero-carbon feedstock for Yara Australia’s ammonia manufacturing facility in Karratha. This might be key to creating a “Pilbara Inexperienced Hydrogen Hub”, serving native and export markets, and constructing on current export infrastructure and plentiful renewable power assets within the area.


Yuri roadmap

As introduced in 2021, the Yuri undertaking is being developed with the assist of a $47.5-million grant from The Australian Authorities’s ARENA Renewable Hydrogen Deployment Fund and a $2-million grant by the Western Australian Authorities’s Renewable Hydrogen Fund.

ENGIE and Mitsui intend to function the Yuri undertaking via this three way partnership firm.

The undertaking will embrace a ten MW electrolyzer powered by 18 MW of photo voltaic PV and supported by an 8 MW battery power storage system, producing renewable hydrogen to be used in Yara Australia’s ammonia facility at Karratha. Allowing is accomplished, a 100% offtake contract is in place with Yara and building is about to begin by November 2022, resulting from a consortium product of Technip Energies and Monford Group chosen as EPC contractor for the undertaking.

As soon as commissioned it will likely be amongst the biggest renewable power powered electrolysis websites on this planet, which can present classes to speed up the hydrogen business in Australia and display the flexibility to combine electrolysers with ammonia crops. The undertaking can even share information and experiences within the areas of group engagement, allow processes and business participation.
