thyssenkrupp Uhde, in collaboration with DL E&C and CARBONCO, has been chosen by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners P/S (CIP) to spearhead the pre-FEED for the Murchison green ammonia project in Kalbarri, Western Australia. This giga-watt-scale venture aims to harness onshore wind and solar energy for green hydrogen and green ammonia production.
The primary objective of the pre-FEED is to refine the technical concept and initiate crucial engineering activities for the ammonia plant. thyssenkrupp Uhde’s dynamic uhde® ammonia synthesis technology, tailored for dynamic ammonia production challenges, will be at the forefront. The company will also provide integration engineering for the entire facility, paving the way for Murchison Hydrogen Renewables to progress through subsequent commercial and regulatory phases.
Dr. Cord Landsmann, CEO of thyssenkrupp Uhde, emphasized the company’s commitment to the green transformation. The partnership with Murchison Hydrogen Renewables marks a significant step towards establishing a robust business case for this groundbreaking green energy project. The goal is to facilitate the sustainable and climate-friendly production of green ammonia, aligning with global efforts towards carbon neutrality.
Dr. Sang Min Lee, CEO of CARBONCO, expressed confidence in the partnership’s ability to accelerate the global transition towards carbon neutrality. CARBONCO sees itself as a crucial bridge between Western Australia and East Asia, playing a pivotal role in the larger context of the energy transition. The collaboration aims to bring about a substantial impact on the journey towards cleaner and more sustainable energy solutions.
The Murchison green ammonia project holds the promise of transforming the energy landscape by leveraging renewable sources. By utilizing onshore wind and solar energy, the project aligns with the growing emphasis on green hydrogen and ammonia production, which is gaining traction as a viable pathway to decarbonization.
