thyssenkrupp Uhde has been engaged by Ark Energy Corporation Pty Ltd on behalf of the Han-Ho H2 Consortium to deliver a Feasibility Study to support the development of the Han-Ho H2 Hub Project. The project seeks to build a green energy supply chain exporting up to 1.8 million tonnes of green ammonia per annum from Australia to the Republic of Korea (ROK) by 2030.
The study will involve a comprehensive techno-economic analysis of the power-to-ammonia value chain—from power feed characterization to product dispatch—using thyssenkrupp Uhde’s proprietary RHAMFS modeling methodology.
Based on decades of technical and economic data, dynamic and multivariable modeling can be performed to determine the most practical and cost-economic concept for any power-to-X application, be it greenfield or brownfield.
The goal is to evaluate the influence of various factors on the overall cost-effectiveness of the green ammonia plant and explore multiple scenarios to identify optimal plant designs. thyssenkrupp Uhde will also provide technology, engineering services and integration know-how for the green ammonia facility based on thyssenkrupp uhde ammonia synthesis technology. The study will allow the Han-Ho H2 Consortium to advance through the following commercial and regulatory phases of the Project.
Ark Energy is an Australian renewable energy company specializing in wind, solar, energy storage and hydrogen. Ark Energy is a subsidiary of Korea Zinc Co. Ltd., the world’s largest zinc producer with a 25-year history in Australia through its Sun Metals zinc refinery in Townsville.
Ark Energy’s mandate is to decarbonize the energy supply of the Korea Zinc group starting with Sun Metals, as part of the group’s ambition to produce green zinc by 2030. Ark Energy is at the forefront of development of Australia’s green hydrogen industry through its SunHQ Hydrogen Hub in Townsville and is leading the Han-Ho H2 Consortium involving three of Korea’s largest conglomerate groups including Hanwha Impact, Korea Zinc and SK Gas.
