IHI starts Joint Feasibility Study on “Kogan Hydrogen Demonstration Project” with CS Energy for carbon free hydrogen production and sale in Australia
-February 03, 2021-
IHI Corporation (“IHI”) starts feasibility study on “Kogan Hydrogen Demonstration Project (Kogan HDP)” which will produce and sell carbon free hydrogen from Solar PV Power located next to Kogan PS site with CS Energy which is a Queensland-owned and based energy company in Australia.
Kogan HDP will have a Solar PV, Battery Energy Storage System, Electrolyser and Fuel Cell to produce and sell carbon free hydrogen from Solar Power and also sell surplus power to the market through grid. Design of the HDP system, verification of hydrogen market, and etc. will be performed for business feasibility evaluation during FS. Demonstration Plant construction and operation are also under planning after FS.
CS Energy is a Queensland-owned and based energy company that provides reliable and competitively priced electricity of more than 3,500 megawatts in the National Electricity Market. IHI supplied CS Energy and InterGen’s/Callide C coal fired power plant (2 x 420MW, COD:2001) and participated in the Callide Oxyfuel Project, which successfully showed carbon capture technology could lower emissions at Callide A coal fired power plant as project partner. Queensland has a unique competitive advantage in the production of renewable hydrogen with proximity to Asia. So, development of hydrogen industries is expected in Queensland.
IHI would like to proceed joint feasibility study based on the utilization of development and operation know-how from “Soma IHI Green Energy Centre” started operation in 2018 that has Solar PV, Battery Energy Storage System, Electrolyser and Fuel Cell and IHI have been developed and operated as hydrogen local production and local consumption.
IHI will make best efforts to develop hydrogen & ammonia energy utilization technology and create carbon free value chain for the realization of carbon free – recycling society and comfortable self-distributed community with peace of mind.
