Perth-based company Infinite Blue Energy is planning to build what will become Australia’s largest hydrogen production facility using supplies of wind and solar energy.
Infinite Blue Energy can now begin construction of the first phase after an initial $300 million investment was secured for the Arrowsmith Hydrogen Project.
Stage One of the IBE Liquid Hydrogen Project will be the Arrowsmith Project, located in Western Australia. This installation will commence production in 2022 resulting in 25 tons (25,000 kg) of green Hydrogen per day from the zero-carbon energy sources of water, solar, and wind.
The majority of IBE projects will be located in regional Australia resulting in sustainable regional jobs and energy independence.
Infinite Blue Energy CEO Stephen Gauld said, “IBE is at the leading edge of Green Hydrogen and we have been able to progress the Arrowsmith Hydrogen Project by establishing partnerships with leading Australian and international companies, technology suppliers and Green Hydrogen buyers around the world.” he continued “We are enabling access to leading-edge technology and establishing domestic and international sales agreements to spearhead our expansion plans.”
IBE strives to enable a sustainable green Hydrogen future from water, solar, and wind energy with no carbon debt.
Through alliances with selected and proven technology partners, IBE is able to deliver commercial-scale projects that deliver renewable energy safely and economically to evolving domestic and international markets.
Despite the increasing interest in Liquid Hydrogen as a Zero Carbon fuel, there are very few instances of commercial or sub-commercial scale green Hydrogen production. The existing liquid Hydrogen production facilities use traditional fossil fuels with the associated carbon debt.
