    Australian hydrogen infrastructure developer H2U has confirmed its joint venture Renewable Hydrogen/Ammonia power plant is a step closer to completion with the implementation of gas turbine generators.

    The $A117.5m. project will integrate new hydrogen technologies, including a 15MW electrolyser plant, a distributed ammonia production facility, and a 10MW hydrogenfired gas turbine and 5MW hydrogen fuel cell, which will both supply power to the grid.

    A company spokesperson said "This means we can use the units to support critical loads within the Port Lincoln facility, while also contributing generation to the grid during periods of low wind or solar output. The hydrogen is also produced by the electrolysis plant on site, so we have a truly self-contained solution to firming renewable energy supply within the South Australia grid.”

    The joint Australian/German project is due for completion in 2020 and will be one of the first commercial plants to produce carbon dioxide-free green ammonia from intermittent renewable resources.

    Update: The Germany-Australian Energy Transition Hub has reiterated its plan to turn South Australia into a world leading hydrogen exporter..in a state that is already sourcing well over 50 per cent of its electricity needs from wind and solar and which is on track to reach “net 100 per cent renewables” by 2030. The hub says this is the most economic and effective plan to provide renewable power for electricity, transport and buildings, and to build an multi billion dollar export industry.

    Hydrogen is the new renewable energy buzz word in my country with two huge Queensland projects to use large-scale renewables for the production of ammonia at facilities which currently rely on gas.

    One proposal is to build a 210MW solar farm (see below) in addition to a 160MW hydrogen electrolyser to produce renewable hydrogen and “green ammonia” at Dyno Nobel’s existing facilities at Moranbah.

    The second proposal is to tap into wind and solar and storage facilities to be built by Neon to use renewable hydrogen to supply one fifth of the ammonia needs from Queensland Nitrates ammonia plant near Moura.
