Strike plant to be Australia’s largest hydrogen consumer
PERTH, September 15, 2021 – Strike Energy has announced plans to build Australia’s largest industrial hydrogen consumer and carbon sink at its upcoming urea fertiliser plant, the junior announced on Wednesday.
Project Haber will initially see green hydrogen created through the project’s 10-MW electrolyser, which will meet around 2% of the plant’s needs. The consortium plans on ramping up production of green hydrogen after the first phase.
Once the upcoming facility exceeds 40% green hydrogen in its feedstock, it will require carbon dioxide imports of around 500 tonnes per year.
The 1.4-million-tonne-per-year urea production plant intends to replace Australia’s reliance on fertiliser imports.
Strike Energy has signed non-binding MoUs with Canada’s Atco Group and Australia’s Infinite Blue Energy to build up Western Australia’s energy infrastructure, including power transmission sites, desalinated water facilities and pipelines.
