The project proponent is planning a phased developed of a large-scale hydrogen and ammonia production facility at a site in the southern metropolitan area of Perth, Western Australia.
|Main end-use classification:
Export potential – ammonia production, liquid hydrogen
Domestic demand – initial mobility uses, heavy industry uses
Under development -pending final investment decision
Initial phase targeting 2,700 tonnes per day of ammonia through both gas reforming and electrolysis
Western Australia, Australia
H2Perth is a proposed hydrogen and ammonia production facility to be located in the Rockingham Industrial Zone, Perth, Western Australia. Phase 1 of the project is targeting up to 2,700 tonnes per day of ammonia produced through both gas reforming and electrolysis. It is targeting supply to local industry and international users.
Subsequent phases have the potential to expand to 8,900 tonnes per day by increasing the electrolysis component. Pre front-end engineering design commenced in May 2022. Woodside is operator and holds a 100% participating interest.
Woodside intends for H2Perth to be net zero from the start of operations, using a combination of renewable electricity, offsets and carbon capture, utilisation and storage technologies.
In April 2023, Woodside and Keppel Data Centres Holding Pte Ltd (Keppel Data Centres) signed a non-binding Heads of Agreement to evaluate the potential supply of liquid hydrogen to Singapore from Woodside’s portfolio of planned production facilities, including the proposed H2Perth facility.
Woodside is also proposing a self-contained hydrogen production, storage and refuelling facility within the H2Perth land allocation for local industrial customers and the public. Hydrogen Refueller@H2Perth is targeting production of 0.2 tonnes per day of hydrogen, with the potential to scale up to a targeted 0.8 tonnes per day. In August 2022, Hydrogen Refueller @H2Perth was announced as the successful proponent in the Western Australian Government’s AUD$10 million Hydrogen Fuelled Transport Program.
