Bell Bay

Tasmania, Australia

Tasmania

As highlighted in the Tasmanian Government’s Renewable Hydrogen Action Plan, Tasmania is well-positioned for the development of a green hydrogen industry due to the State’s low-cost, reliable renewable energy and excellent port and water infrastructure.

Bell Bay project

We are progressing our proposed 25-megawatt green hydrogen project in Bell Bay in Northern Tasmania which could be one of the world’s largest green hydrogen plants, when commissioned.

With the capacity to produce 250,000 tonnes of green ammonia per year for domestic use and international export, this would create a significant new market for green hydrogen produced in Australia bringing immense economic benefits.

In June, 2021 we signed an Option Agreement with Tasmanian Ports Corporation Pty Ltd (TasPorts) to exclusively negotiate all land and operating access requirements for the proposed project.

An economic analysis completed by Deloitte found that the first 250MW stage could deliver a net $2 billion increase to gross state product over the life of the project.

This benefit would be spread across Tasmanian businesses and local jobs, with an estimated creation of over 500 full time jobs during the development, construction and operation stages of the project and FFI will shortly release an Expression of Interest for the skills and jobs required across these project stages.

We are working closely with stakeholders, including the Tasmanian Government, to progress this important project, with the intent to make an investment decision by the end of 2021.

FFI Tasmania supply chain

FFI is proposing to create a fully integrated process that adds value to the northern Tasmania communities, particularly around Bell Bay. The entire energy system will be delivered and operated by FFI.
