H2TAS Renewable Hydrogen and Ammonia Facility

H2TAS Renewable Hydrogen and Ammonia Facility

The H2TAS Renewable Hydrogen and Ammonia Facility is a hydrogen and ammonia production plant proposed by Woodside Energy to be located in Long Reach, in the North West of Tasmania. 

Once complete the project would be capable of 750 megawatts (MW) of electrolysis for hydrogen and ammonia production. The project is proposed to be completed in two phases:

Phase 1: electrolysis capacity of up to 350 MW, producing approximately 220,000 tonnes of ammonia per year.

Phase 2: electrolysis capacity of up to 400MW, producing approximately 580,000 tonnes of ammonia per year. 

The project will source water from the nearby River Tamar.
