The Eyre Peninsula Gateway Project is the first in a pipeline of several green hydrogen and green ammonia projects being developed by H2U and will be built in two stages.
The initial commercial-scale Demonstrator Stage will integrate a 100 MW electrolysis plant for the production of up to 15,000 tonnes per year of green hydrogen, and up to 40,000 tonnes per year of green ammonia.
Targeting commissioning by the end of 2023, the Demonstrator facility will supply the local South Australian and domestic markets, and support trial export shipments of green hydrogen and green ammonia to Japan and other North Asian economies.
The future industrial-scale expansion of production operations at Cultana, including 1.5 GW in electrolysis plant for the production of up to 300,000 tonnes per year of green hydrogen, and up to 800,000 tonnes per year of green ammonia.
The Export Stage will include the establishment of an export terminal to service the emerging North Asian and European markets, targeting commissioning for the Export Terminal by end of 2025 and transition to industrial-scale production operations from 2026 onwards.
The Future Expansion Stage will see, an additional 1.5 GW of electrolysis capacity, and 2,400 tonnes per day ammonia being established in the Port Bonython precinct, targeting commissioning by 2030.
The Demonstrator Stage of the Project received financial support under the South Australian Government’s Renewable Technology Fund, with a $4.7 million grant and a $7.5 million loan announced in February 2018.
This sets the Eyre Peninsula Gateway Project apart from the growing portfolio of green ammonia initiatives globally, as the first project to achieve this critical milestone; further progressing H2U and South Australia’s leading position in the industry.
