Hydrogen Renewables Australia (HRA) has announced it has agreed to partner with Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) on its 5000 MW Murchison Renewable Hydrogen Project located near Kalbarri in the mid-west of Western Australia. 

HRA’s executive chairman Terry Kallis said, “Our partnership with CIP will enable the Murchison Renewable Hydrogen Project to proceed with its planned development to assess the feasibility of producing competitive hydrogen exports for the Asian markets.” 

Partner at CIP Michael Hannibal stated, “CIP is pleased to be joining forces with Hydrogen Renewables Australia to develop the Murchison Renewable Project.

“A project that aims at exporting green hydrogen produced from solar PV and onshore wind to Asian energy importing countries. We believe Murchison represents the best combined wind and solar resource in Australia and the project complements our existing activities in Australia.”

The Murchison Renewable Hydrogen Project is a large scale (up to 5000 MW), export oriented green hydrogen project that is located on the 126,000 hectare Murchison House Station and will be powered by combined wind and solar power generation and utilise desalinated water. The project is aiming to provide large scale hydrogen export to the Asian markets–notably Japan and Korea.
