Sun Brilliance has completed the early design for 310,000 TPA Green Hydrogen and 800,000 TPA Green Ammonia plants to be built in Western Australia with an estimated project cost of AU$10.65 billion. The Green Hydrogen and Ammonia project will be implemented in three phases and powered by solar and wind energy.
Clough and EPC company TSK from Spain are working closely with Sun Brilliance to implement this project in a way that maximises local engagement.
TSK’s scope of work would include the high-level design, procurement and overall supervision while Clough is exploring possibilities to implement the project that maximises local engagement and provides early contractor involvement for the wrap engineering and construction of this proposed green energy facility.
John Galvin, Clough Executive Vice President, Australia & Asia Pacific said: “Clough is pleased to be exploring opportunities for green energy facilities in the North West of Western Australia. We are currently building Australia’s First Hydrogen power plant and with this expertise, we are now working closely to help another client achieve FID, particularly on this large-scale green project which is aimed directly at building Australia’s clean energy future.”
Dr Dilawar Singh, Managing Director and CEO of Sun Brilliance said: “We are excited with the developments as there are so many green hydrogen projects announced Australia-wide but none of them have yet reached the design stage. We are still verifying the production cost of Green Hydrogen and Ammonia. Our target is to bring the cost of Green Hydrogen below $2 per kg mark to fulfil the dream of the Federal Government.”
Sun Brilliance has applied for Federal Government grants, as without grants none of the Green Hydrogen/Ammonia projects are commercially viable or able to compete with the grey or blue hydrogen projects. The outcome of the grant application is being awaited.
TSK is a well-known and reputable EPC company which operates in 57 countries and has employed more than 1,000 staff. TSK will also operate and maintain the plants.
Sun Brilliance will export Green Ammonia to South Korea and Japan after the completion of Stage 1 of Phase 1 of the project in 2025.
