Hydrogen Renewables Australia and Denmark-based Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) today said they will collaborate on the 5,000-MW Murchison green hydrogen project in Western Australia.
The project is located near Kalbarri, in the mid-west part of the state. The site covers 126,000 hectares (311,352 acres) of pastoral land at Murchison House Station. The plant will produce hydrogen using solar and onshore wind power and will export it to Asian countries, Japan and South Korea in particular.
“Our partnership with CIP will enable the Murchison Renewable Hydrogen Project to proceed with its planned development to assess the feasibility of producing competitive hydrogen exports for the Asian markets,” Hydrogen Renewables Australia’s executive chairman, Terry Kallis, commented.
