Closed 8 May 2022

Opened 2 May 2022


The Proposal will use combined onshore wind and solar energy of approximately 5.2 gigawatt (GW) capacity to produce green hydrogen which will be converted to an estimated 2 Million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of green ammonia for export to emerging green energy markets. The Proposal is located within the Shire of Northampton, Western Australia (WA), approximately 20 km north of Kalbarri.

The Proposal comprises the following major components:

  • a wind and solar farm with a combined installed capacity of approximately 5.2 GW
  • a Power-to-X (PtX) facility that will use the produced green energy to create approximately 2 Mtpa of green ammonia
  • ammonia export facility including pipeline and export vessel mooring and product transfer infrastructure

Why your views matter

At this initial stage of the EIA process, comment is simply sought on whether or not the EPA should assess a proposal and, if so, what level of assessment is considered appropriate.

What happens next

Following the seven day public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will decide whether or not this proposal requires environmental impact assessment and, if so, what level of assessment will be applied.

The EPA's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
