Plug Power signs 3 GW BEDP contract with Allied Green Ammonia for electrolyzer project in Australia

Plug Power signed a Basic Engineering and Design Package (BEDP) with Allied Green Ammonia (AGA), an Australian company focused on green ammonia production, for a three-gigawatt (GW) electrolyzer plant supplying hydrogen to AGA’s planned ammonia facility proposed for the Northern Territory of Australia.

Plug’s BEDP offering is instrumental for project owners such as AGA to support their Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) and incorporate Plug’s electrolyzers into the basic design of the overall plant, enabling project owners to make the final investment decision (FID). The FID for AGA’s hydrogen-to-ammonia facility, with a capacity of 2,700 metric ton-per-day (TPD) green ammonia, is planned for Q4 2025.

The BEDP contract announcement follows the recently announced memorandum of understanding for the supply of Plug’s Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolyzers with delivery slated to begin in Q1 2027.

Green hydrogen produced by Plug’s electrolyzers can help decarbonize the ammonia production process by displacing Steam Methane Reforming (SMR) techniques. In addition to its environmental advantages, Plug’s pressurized (40 bar) electrolyzer decreases downstream compression requirements, and the extracted oxygen from electrolysis-based hydrogen can enhance efficiency in industrial power plants and furnaces due to its high-temperature combustion capability. The Plug modular units are completely factory-assembled and can easily be transported by sea and road to remote locations.

AGA’s production facility will operate a 2,700 metric ton-per-day (TPD) green ammonia process. Tapping into abundant renewable energy resources and a strong local energy infrastructure, the proposed Gove Peninsula location strategically aligns with Australia’s trading partnerships with Asia. The facility is geographically positioned to meet AGA’s intended customers’ growing needs, providing them with a reliable and secure supply of green ammonia from the region.

Plug currently operates the largest PEM electrolyzer deployment in the United States at its 15 TPD Woodbine, Ga., hydrogen plant. This announcement follows Plug’s recently announced BEDP contracts totaling 4.5 GW, bringing Plug’s total BEDP contracts to 7.5 GW to date spanning across the United States, Europe and Australia.

The BEDPs contain all the information for a clients’ Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) project phase to develop a mature project execution plan and financial models required to bring the projects to FID. The total of 7.5 GW of signed BEDP contracts of mature projects will support Plug’s growth targets.
