The HyEnergy Project has thrown its weight behind efforts by Global Energy Ventures to develop a compressed hydrogen transport ship to export green hydrogen to Asia.
HyEnergy, a project by Province Resources and partner Total Eren, aims to develop a green hydrogen project in the Gascoyne Region of Western Australia.
The project partners have signed a memorandum of understanding with GEV to support its feasibility study into its proposed marine export chain.
The study will evaluate the technical feasibility and delivered cost of green hydrogen exports to assess their commercial potential.
Global Energy Ventures introduced the world’s first large-scale Compressed Hydrogen (C-H2) ship in 2010 and later achieved American Bureau of Shipping Approval in Principle for the vessel with a hydrogen storage capacity of 2,000 tonnes.
HyEnergy is seeking a method of exporting its hydrogen – other companies are exploring ammonia or liquefied hydrogen as methods.
Province’s CEO David Frances said: “We are keen to understand the benefits of compressed hydrogen in relation to other means of transporting our potential green hydrogen product to market.
“GEV are leaders in this technology and will bring that experience to this study.”
