Project description

The proposed Hydrogen Refueller H2Perth project is a self-contained hydrogen production, storage and refuelling station project that would be co-located with Woodside’s proposed H2Perth project (a large-scale domestic and export-oriented hydrogen and ammonia production facility) in the Rockingham Industrial Zone near Perth.

Hydrogen for the refueller station would be supplied using a 2-megawatt (MW) electrolyser that would be powered by renewable energy sourced from the South West Interconnected System (SWIS). As required, Woodside would also make use of Renewable Energy Certificates.

Woodside Energy has executed conditional, non-binding Memorandums of Understanding with BGC and Centurion for the supply of hydrogen from the project:

  • BGC would intend to purchase and operate five to ten hydrogen concrete agitator vehicles
  • Centurion would intend to purchase and operate two hydrogen prime movers

Woodside Energy plans to lease two Hyundai Nexo vehicles and refuel at the station.

Initially, Woodside Energy is targeting hydrogen production of 235 kg per day, with potential to scale-up to a targeted 800 kg per day.

The facility is planned to be operational in the second-half of 2024, subject to receipt of the necessary approvals.

In August 2022, it was announced that the Western Australian Government had awarded AUD$10 million to the Hydrogen Refueller H2Perth project, with matched funding from Woodside Energy.

The funding award would support vehicle purchases by BGC and Centurion as well as support operation of the facility.
