Thyssen Krupp has been awarded a contract to perform a feasibility study for a new green hydrogen project by the Australian hydrogen infrastructure company Hydrogen Utility (H2U). As part of the project, a 30 MW water electrolysis plant as well as a facility for sustainable ammonia production are planned to be constructed near Port Lincoln in South Australia.

Essen/Germany — The plant will be one of the first ever commercial plants to produce CO2-free “green” ammonia from intermittent renewable resources, the company announced.

Dr. Attilio Pigneri, CEO of H2U, described this project is an important milestone for Australia’s shift to a reliable renewable energy future. The new facility would provide balancing services to the national transmission grid, fast frequency response support to new solar plants under development, supply green ammonia and other chemicals to the local farming and aquaculture sectors, he added.

The planned facility will integrate different hydrogen technologies, including a multimegawatt electrolyzer plant and an ammonia production facility with a capacity of 50 tons per day. Both plants will be based on thyssenkrupp technology. A 10 MW hydrogen-fired gas turbine and 5 MW hydrogen fuel cell will supply power to the grid.

In today’s changing electricity landscape, moving towards renewable energy sources, there is a strong need for technologies for energy storage, grid balancing and cross-sector integration — not only for electrical applications but also for transportation, heating, and the chemical industry. As a specialist in chemical plant engineering and construction, the engineering company is able to offer various integrated solutions based on its advanced water electrolysis technology. This includes for example processes for the production of sustainable ammonia, methanol and synthetic natural gas (SNG).
