EnergyAustralia opens first dual-fuel gas and green hydrogen plant

Construction of the power plant took two years.

EnergyAustralia has announced the opening of Tallawarra B Power Station, the first dual-fuel gas and green hydrogen plant.

Located next to EnergyAustralia’s existing Tallawarra A 435 MW gas plant, in Yallah on the western shore of Lake Illawarra in the State of New South Wales, the AU$300m plant can deliver up to 320 MW of dispatchable power.

Tallawarra B is also the first gas-fired power station to be built in New South Wales for over 10 years. According to the press release, the power plant is expected to operate on a blend of 5% (by volume) green hydrogen and natural gas in 2025 subject to the development of a hydrogen manufacturing industry of an appropriate size and scale.

“Gas will continue to play a vital role firming renewables in the energy transition. We are positioning both Tallawarra stations to play a long-term role in New South Wales’ energy future and our own plans to achieve net zero by 2050. Our ambition is for green hydrogen to enable zero emissions flexibility capacity at Tallawarra,” Mark Collette, managing director of EnergyAustralia, said.
