Yuri Renewable Hydrogen to Ammonia Project

Yuri Renewable Hydrogen Project

About the Project

ENGIE and Mitsui’s aim is to develop one of the world’s first industrial-scale renewable hydrogen projects to provide feedstock into Yara Pilbara Fertilisers' (Yara) existing ammonia operations near Karratha in Western Australia. 

Upon completion, the first phase of the Yuri project could produce up to 640 tonnes of renewable hydrogen per year as a zero-carbon feedstock for Yara’s ammonia production facility in Karratha. This project is receiving funding from ARENA and the WA Renewable Hydrogen Fund as part of the Western Australian Government’s Renewable Hydrogen Strategy.

The Yuri Renewable Hydrogen Facility

The plan includes a 10 MW electrolyser powered by 18 MW of solar PV and supported by an 8 MW battery energy storage system, generating renewable hydrogen for use in Yara's ammonia facility at Karratha.
