Infinite Green Energy has teamed up with global tech giant Samsung C&T to progress its Arrowsmith project, which is aiming to deliver renewable hydrogen to local and international markets.

The Perth-based company, chaired by former Woodside Energy chief executive Peter Coleman, on Thursday announced it had signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Samsung to develop and build the green hydrogen plant located 30 kilometres south of Dongara in Western Australia.

The wind- and solar-powered plant is forecast to produce up to 300 tonnes of green hydrogen a day, which equates to 100,000 tonnes per annum.

Production is expected to start in early 2028.

“Our partnership highlights Infinite Green Energy’s commitment not just to fight climate change, but also to see the Western Australia economy and our local communities benefit from green energy production,” Infinite Green Energy chief executive Stephen Gauld said.

Samsung C&T president and chief executive Sechul Oh said participation in the project aligned strongly with the company’s values and vision.

“We are committed to fast-tracking the energy transition, creating opportunities for people and businesses,” he said.

“Production of green hydrogen is a key component of that story.”

Mr Coleman said Samsung brought knowledge, skills and relationship critical to the “successful development of Arrowsmith.”

Infinite Green Energy is also progressing its MEG HP1 project in Northam with Samsung.
