thyssenkrupp supports Australian company H2U in green hydrogen and renewable ammonia value chain development

thyssenkrupp was recently awarded a contract to perform a feasibility study for a new green hydrogen project by the Australian hydrogen infrastructure company Hydrogen Utility (H2U). A 30MW water electrolysis plant as well as a facility for sustainable ammonia production are planned to be constructed near Port Lincoln in South Australia. It will be one of the first commercial plants to produce CO2-free “green” ammonia from intermittent renewable resources.

Integrated hydrogen and ammonia plant.

This project is an important milestone for Australia’s shift to a reliable renewable energy future. The new facility will provide balancing services to the national transmission grid, fast frequency response support to new solar plants under development, supply green ammonia and other chemicals to the local farming and aquaculture sectors. It will host the demonstration of novel supply chain technologies for the export of green hydrogen to markets in the Asia-Pacific region.

—Dr. Attilio Pigneri, CEO of H2U

The planned facility will integrate different hydrogen technologies, including a multimegawatt electrolyzer plant and an ammonia production facility with a capacity of 50 tons per day. Both plants will be based on thyssenkrupp technology. A 10MW hydrogen-fired gas turbine and 5MW hydrogen fuel cell will supply power to the grid.

This is another way to make better use of e-energy produced by intermittent REs. The H2 economy is not dead.
