Kwinana hydrogen hub progresses to FEED

Manufacturing News

The H2Kwinana Hydrogen Hub is progressing to the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) stage, it was announced on Friday, with construction scheduled to be finished “in mid-2027”.

Energy minister Chris Bowen said that the project had made “one major step forward” ahead of producing “over 14,000 tonnes of green hydrogen per annum” for use in industry and heavy transport.

“Kwinana has been an industrial and economic powerhouse for decades, making it an ideal location for a hydrogen hub that can support decarbonisation of heavy industry and connect our renewable resources to the world,” said Bowen.

The project includes installation of hydrogen storage, compression and truck loading facilities and upgrades to the existing on-site hydrogen pipeline system. 

A 100 megawatt electrolyser will initially be installed, “with the potential to expand to a total of 1.5 GW production.”

The federal government has awarded the hub $70 million in support through the Regional Hydrogen Hubs program, and the total project value is estimated at $252.5 million.
