Technip Energies has been selected by Infinite Green Energy to perform a front-end engineering design (FEED) for a 10MW green hydrogen project in Western Australia. The MEG-HP1 Early Production Facility, in Northam, will be powered by the Northam Solar Farm, located approximately 100 km east of Perth, to be acquired by Infinite Green Energy. The plan is to begin producing hydrogen in 2024. The Northam Solar Farm consists of 33,600 solar panels and is constructed over 25 hectares. It is already connected to the South West Interconnected System (SWIS) with additional land secured for potential expansion. The 10MW green hydrogen production facility will be located in close proximity to the solar farm and will produce up to 4.3 tonnes of the gas per day.
Hydrogen production offtake is focused on the heavy transport sector, targeting back-to-base logistics operators and local governments with in-depot refuelling. Gareth Philp, Australia Managing Director of Technip Energies, said: “We are proud to have been selected as an execution partner by Infinite Green Energy Ltd for the MEG-HP1 Early Production Facility project. “We are committed to leveraging our local footprint and our integration and design expertise to contribute to building the future of green hydrogen in Australia.” Stephen Gauld, CEO and founder of Green Infinite Energy, added: “This is an important milestone for Infinite Green Energy and we’re pleased to be partnering with Technip Energies on Front End Engineering and Design. “Our MEG-HP1 Early Production facility at Northam is leading the transition to a net zero economy. “With first gas expected in 2024, Infinite Green Energy is on track to delivering some of the first commercial-scale green hydrogen in WA.”
