Province Resources, a Sydney-listed miner, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Shire of Carnarvon to collaborate on the possible construction of a green hydrogen project in Western Australia’s Gascoyne area.
The MoU will concentrate on further exploring appropriate areas for improving facilities as part of a clean green hydrogen project, and “sends a strong signal to the province that the Shire of Carnarvon is an ideal location to advance the HyEnergy Zero Carbon Hydrogen project.”
The province recently signed a binding Memorandum of Understanding with Total Eren, a subsidiary of French Total, for a feasibility study to build an up to 8 GW renewable power plant and a downstream hydrogen facility. The province said it would look into the feasibility of building and constructing part of the project infrastructure in a 12,311-hectare area north of Carnarvon township.
“I am pleased to announce the signing of this important MoU with the Shire of Carnarvon which provides greater confidence that we are not only operating in a region of world-class wind and solar potential but also with the mutual support of a progressive local shire.”Province managing director, David Frances
“Our Shire is working proactively to realise the significant opportunities and vast potential of the great Gascoyne region in contributing to the national green energy focus and we congratulate Province Resources in recognising and acting on this potential.”Shire of Carnarvon president Eddie Smith and CEO Andrea Selvey
