$500m invested in Indonesia's green hydrogen production
Plans involve the development of a US$500m green hydrogen plant in Aceh province.
Black & Veatch has set plans to support the expansion of green hydrogen generation in Indonesia through the development of a US$500m green hydrogen plant in Aceh province.
Through a feasibility study for Augustus Global Investment (AGI), the project is seen to be “technically and economically feasible” for green hydrogen production using in-house electrolyzers powered by grid-supplied renewable power.
The planned green hydrogen plan would be constructed in the Arun Lhokseumawe Special Economic Zone (SEZ). It is estimated to produce 98.9 tonnes of hydrogen per day (TPD) and hold a 300 MW capacity.
Black & Veatch also presented a plant configuration and technology analysis and order-of-magnitude cost estimates for its expected hydrogen generation, maintenance, and storage.
“With Indonesia’s vast energy and renewable resources including geothermal energy, there is great potential for this project to be a catalyst in creating a long-term hydrogen economy in Indonesia over this next decade,” Narsingh Chaudhary, President of Black & Veatch, Asia Pacific and India, said.
