Plug Signs MOU With Allied Green Ammonia for 3GW of Electrolyzer Supply at Green Ammonia Plant
05.06.2024 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

May 06, 2024 [Green Car Congress]- Plug Power signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Allied Green Ammonia (AGA), an Australian company focused on green ammonia production, to supply up to 3 gigawatts (GW) of Plug electrolyzer capacity for AGA’s upcoming hydrogen-to-ammonia facility proposed for the Northern Territory of Australia.

 

Following the MOU, Plug and AGA plan to enter an agreement, as outlined in the MOU, to initiate a Basic Engineering and Design Package (BEDP) for the 3GW capacity project. The BEDP is expected to advance mid-May of this year, with final investment decision (FID) planned for Q4 2025 and the progressive delivery of the 3GW electrolyzer supply slated to begin in Q1 2027.

Green hydrogen produced by Plug’s electrolyzers can help decarbonize the ammonia production process by displacing Steam Methane Reforming (SMR) techniques. In addition to its environmental advantages, Plug’s pressurized (40 bar) electrolyzer decreases downstream compression requirements and the extracted oxygen from electrolysis-based hydrogen can enhance efficiency in industrial power plants and furnaces due to its high-temperature combustion capability.

AGA’s production facility will operate a 2500 metric ton-per-day (TPD) green ammonia process. It taps into abundant renewable energy resources and strong energy infrastructure, the proposed location Gove Peninsula strategically aligning with Asia’s trading partnerships. The facility is geographically positioned to meet AGA’s intended customers’ growing needs, providing them with a reliable and secure supply of green ammonia from the region.

Plug is the leading manufacturer of PEM electrolyzers and currently operates the largest PEM electrolyzer deployment in the United States at its 15 TPD Georgia Hydrogen plant. This announcement follows Plug’s recently announced BEDP contracts totaling 4.5 GW across the United States and Europe.
