Hydrogen energyProject Stanwell Hydrogen Electrolysis Deployment Feasibility Study
This public Feasiblity Study is the final deliverable of the project and documents the detailed investigation by Stanwell into the feasiblity of a new project to produce green Hydrogen at their existing power plant site near Rockhampton, QLD, for supply to local users and Ammonia producers.
This document summarises the outcomes of the Stanwell Hydrogen Demonstration Project feasibility study (“the Project”) which was undertaken from July 2019 to October 2020.
The purpose of the Project is to create momentum towards a large-scale green hydrogen industry in Central Queensland by conducting a hydrogen demonstration project, to be co-located with Stanwell Power Station near Rockhampton.
The Project would see Stanwell Corporation Limited (Stanwell) install a 10-megawatt (MW) electrolyser intended to produce approximately 1,600 tonnes of green hydrogen per annum. The green hydrogen produced by the Project would be supplied to an ammonia and gas producer in the region, which would use Stanwell’s green hydrogen as a feedstock in its production process, reducing the carbon footprint of its operations.
The learnings developed through the Project could be used to support a commercialisation pathway to a large-scale green hydrogen and ammonia export project in Central Queensland.
