Woodside Energy are proposing the construction of a hydrogen and ammonia production plant at a site in Bell Bay in the North West of Tasmania.
Once complete the project would be capable of 1.7 gigawatts (GW) of electrolysis for hydrogen and ammonia production. The project would be completed in stages, with the first stage having 300 megawatts of capacity equating to 200,000 tonnes of ammonia per annum.
The project would use hydropower and wind power to run the electrolyser.
