The Arrowsmith Hydrogen Project is a proposed green hydrogen production plant near Dongara in Western Australia, located 320 kilometres north of Perth.

The project is being developed by developed by Infinite Blue Energy. The company has indicated that it intends for this project to be the first of a series of green hydrogen projects in regional Western Australia.

The plant is expected to have a production capacity of 25 tonnes of green hydrogen per day, which will be derived from renewable energy sources, including water, solar and wind. The plant would be supplied by around 85 megawatts of solar power, supplemented by 75 megawatts of wind generation capacity, which will be generated on-site. The project would also integrate a large-scale battery on-site.

In April 2020, media reports indicated that the project had secured the private investment required to proceed to the construction phase.

Construction work is scheduled to commence by mid-2020. Infinite Blue Energy has indicated that it estimates hydrogen production from the facility will commence in Q4 2022.
