Infinite Blue Energy has signed an agreement with Western Power to complete the initial studies for a 330KV power line to its Arrowsmith Hydrogen Plant 270Km North of Perth as part of its FID planned for January 2021.
It is envisaged that a new 330KV line from Eneabba to Arrowsmith will support Arrowsmith stage-I for domestic supply and Arrowsmith stage-II for the Asia Pacific international markets. The upgraded network will open up over 50KM of accessible land for new infrastructure developments quoted Stephen Gauld CEO at IBE.
The 330KV line at its peak is expected to support 750MW of power to its Arrowsmith Hydrogen plant. Whilst the plant will generate more than 77% of its renewable power onsite, the 330 kV network will support the flow of power from the network into the plant when wind and solar is insufficient and allow surplus renewable power generated by Infinite Blue Energy to be exported to the grid for use at alternate locations. Its envisaged that of the 5,000 GWh of power per annum produced at Arrowsmith, around 500 GWh of annual green energy will be pushed back into the grid, enough to power more than 65,000 homes daily.
Once completed, this will open up the entire Mid West Area for infrastructure developments and power Australia’s largest Green Hydrogen project.
