Giant BP says the project will develop up to 26 gigawatts of combined solar and wind generating capacity in creating "Green Hydrogen". Fact finding video included.
BP said it would become the operator of the development, adding that it had “the potential to be one of the largest renewables and green hydrogen hubs in the world.”
Located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, it’s envisaged the project will develop up to 26 gigawatts of combined solar and wind generating capacity.
The idea is that the hub would provide power to local customers. The hydrogen and ammonia would be used in Australia and exported internationally.
“At full capacity, AREH is expected to be capable of producing around 1.6 million tonnes of green hydrogen or 9 million tonnes of green ammonia, per annum,” BP said.
And now the video from DW Planet A and then one from BP.
