Fortescue inks deal with Ngadju to preserve cultural resources in preparation for hydrogen hub

Having just signed a heritage agreement with the Ngadju Native Title Aboriginal Corporation, Fortescue Future Industries is making strides toward establishing a green hydrogen center in the south-east of the state.

The Andrew Forrest-led company’s plan to cut down on carbon dioxide emissions and create a green hydrogen export sector in several parts of Australia includes the South East Western Australia Green Hydrogen Hub project.

Fortescue Future Industries plans to build a significant renewable energy hub in Esperance due to the abundance of wind and solar power in the area.

Wind and solar power plants, desalination plants to obtain demineralized water for hydrogen creation, a green hydrogen and ammonia production plant, and a port complex can all be part of the green hydrogen hub.

After “extensive engagement” with elders and the Ngadju native title holders on the NNTAC board, Fortescue Future Industries indicated they were ready to sign the heritage agreement.
