Project description

The project proponent is exploring options for the development of a large-scale renewables-based hydrogen and ammonia project located at Boolathana Station (on the Boolathana 148,000-hectare pastoral lease) in the coastal Gascoyne region of Western Australia (about 15 kilometres from the town of Carnarvon).

Renewables generation would be through a combination of solar and wind resources; at the present early concept design stage, this is perceived to be one-third solar and two-thirds wind. Stage 1 is envisaged as having a combined maximum generating capacity in the range 1-4 GW.

The ‘upstream’ solar and wind energy would be used to power downstream processing facilities to produce commodities such as renewables-based hydrogen and ammonia for export.

The project is progressing technical studies (including early engineering design) as well as land, environmental and heritage surveys, etc.

Development planning activities also include discussions with traditional owners, local stakeholders and state government planning authorities to progress development approvals pathways.
