## ENGIE greenlights Australian renewable hydrogen project with Yara

##### 18 September 2022

ENGIE has taken the Final Investment Decision in the development of one of the world’s first industrial-scale renewable hydrogen projects, to be located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Scheduled for completion in 2024, the first phase of the Yuri project will produce up to 640 tonnes of renewable hydrogen per year as a zero-carbon feedstock for Yara Australia’s ammonia production facility in Karratha. This will be key to developing a “Pilbara Green Hydrogen Hub”, serving local and export markets, and building on existing export infrastructure and abundant renewable energy resources in the region.

As announced in 2021, the Yuri project is being developed with the support of a $47.5-million grant from The Australian Government’s ARENA Renewable Hydrogen Deployment Fund and a$2-million grant by the Western Australian Government’s Renewable Hydrogen Fund.
