Black and Veatch has completed the feasibility study for Augustus Global Investment’s USD500 million green hydrogen production plant in Indonesia.
The plant, located in the Arun Lhokseumawe special economic zone in Aceh province, is expected to produce 98.5 tonnes of hydrogen per day and have a 300 MW capacity. The project will involve producing green hydrogen using electrolysers powered by grid-supplied renewable energy. Black and Veatch conducted plant configuration and technology analysis and order-of-magnitude cost estimates for hydrogen generation and storage. The study concluded that the project can be technically and economically feasible and has the potential to contribute to the country’s energy transition.
