Hydrogen Renewables Australia (HRA) has agreed to partner with Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) on its 5000 MW Murchison renewable hydrogen project located near Kalbarri in the Midwest of Western Australia.
The Murchison Renewable Hydrogen Project is a large-scale (up to 5000 MW) export-oriented green hydrogen project located at the 126,000-hectare Murchison House Station and will be powered by combined wind and solar power generation and desalinated water.
The project aims to export large-scale hydrogen to Asian markets – especially Japan and Korea.
“Our partnership with CIP will enable the Murchison Renewable Hydrogen Project to proceed with its planned development to assess the feasibility of producing competitive hydrogen exports for the Asian markets.”Terry Kallis, HRA executive chairman.
“CIP is pleased to be joining forces with Hydrogen Renewables Australia to develop the Murchison Renewable Project. A project that aims at exporting green hydrogen produced from solar PV and onshore wind to Asian energy importing countries. We believe Murchison represents the best combined wind and solar resource in Australia and the project complements our existing activities in Australia.”Michael Hannibal, partner at CIP.
