Hydrogen Renewables Australia (HRA) has made progress on its 5000MW Murchison Renewable Hydrogen Project, by announcing a partnership with fund managers Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP).

The Murchison Project is a large scale, export-oriented green hydrogen project that is located on the 126,000 hectares Murchison House Station, near Kalbarri in the mid-west of Western Australia. The project will be powered by combined wind and solar power generation and utilise desalinated water.

The project aims to provide large scale hydrogen export to the Asian markets – notably Japan and Korea – and will be developed in stages:

  1. A demonstration phase providing hydrogen for transport fuels;
  2. An expansion to blend with natural gas in the nearby Dampier to Bunbury pipeline;
  3. A large expansion to produce hydrogen for the Asian markets, notably Japan and Korea.
