Project description

The project proponent has indicated progress in the development of an International Joint Development Project to produce 42,000 tonnes per annum of renewables-based liquid hydrogen in Darwin, Northern Territory, for export by large-scale tanker to South Korea. Export shipments are anticipated to begin within this decade.

The project proponent has indicated a Memorandum of Understanding/Letter of Intent for renewables-based power supply is in place with the Sun Cable 10 Gigawatt (GW) solar/battery project, also located in the Northern Territory.

The project proponent has indicated a Memorandum of Understanding/Letter of Intent offtake agreement has been secured with Korean Importers.

A development site has been identified with the Northern Territory Government at the Darwin Middle Arm Industrial Estate.

In January 2022, it was announced that a Korean-Australian consortium led by LATTICE Technology has secured a grant from the Korea Institute of Energy Technology Evaluation and Planning to develop a standardised liquid hydrogen export production and storage terminal in Australia and a liquid hydrogen import storage terminal in South Korea, to be connected by large-scale liquid hydrogen tanker.
