thyssenkrupp Uhde (Dortmund, Germany), in partnership with DL E&C (formerly Daelim Industrial) and its affiliate (CARBONCO), has been selected by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners P/S (CIP) on behalf of Murchison Hydrogen Renewables Pty Ltd, to deliver a pre-FEED to support the development of the gigawatt-scale Murchison green ammonia project in Kalbarri, Western Australia. This project will use onshore wind and solar energy for green hydrogen and green ammonia production.
The key goal of the pre-FEED is to enhance the technical concept and commence key engineering activities for the ammonia plant. The study will be based on thyssenkrupp Uhde’s dynamic uhde ammonia synthesis technology, which has been specifically developed to tackle the unique challenges of dynamic ammonia production. The company will also provide integration engineering for the full facility. The pre-FEED will also enable Murchison Hydrogen Renewables to advance through the subsequent commercial and regulatory phases of the project.
Dr. Cord Landsmann, CEO of thyssenkrupp Uhde, said: “With our technologies, we at thyssenkrupp Uhde are making a significant contribution to the green transformation. With our technologies and new partnerships like this one with Murchison Hydrogen Renewables, we are building a sound business case for this groundbreaking green energy project and enabling the sustainable and climate-friendly production of green ammonia.”
Dr. Sang Min Lee, CEO of CARBONCO, said: “We are confident that this partnership for the green ammonia project will further accelerate the global transition to achieve carbon neutrality. We believe that CARBONCO will be a bridge between Western Australia and East Asia, which will play a significant role in the energy transition.”
