HyEnergy project green hydrogen export ‘feasible’

Manufacturing News

Provaris Energy has completed a feasibility study for the proposed HyEnergy Project for the export of 200,000 tonnes per annum of green hydrogen from the Gascoyne region of Western Australia with a focus on delivery to Singapore.

The HyEnergy Project partners Province Resources and Total Eren as well as the WA government have been told their plan for a compressed hydrogen export supply chain is feasible, without the need for a conventional onshore port.

“Hazard identification, operational modelling and an environment assessment demonstrated there were no significant risks that would prevent the project from progressing to the next stage of design and engineering.”

The HyEnergy project envisages an eight GW green hydrogen production facility powered by wind and solar near Carnarvon in WA with total green hydrogen production volume of up to 300,000 tonnes per annum.

Hydrogen is to be compressed at the production site and piped to the coast.

The proposed phase one of the project, which received funding from the Renewable Hydrogen Fund as part of WA’s renewable hydrogen strategy, calls for the export of 200,000 tonnes of green hydrogen per year.

Provaris considered the feasibility of an offshore loading solution which offered reduced environmental disturbance and significantly less capital and operating costs.

The WA government plans to release a summary of study outcomes of the feasibility study in the December quarter, 2022.
