GREEN HYDROGEN TO AMMONIA PROJECT
A PIONEERING PROJECT HARNESSING OUR NATURAL WIND RESOURCES IN TARANAKI
Hiringa Energy and Ballance Agri-Nutrients have formed a joint venture partnership to create a renewable hydrogen hub right here
in South Taranaki.
Developed locally, the $50million showcase project of Taranaki's new energy future will be based at Ballance's Kapuni ammonia-urea plant, and is seen as the catalyst for the development of a sustainable green hydrogen market in New Zealand to fuel heavy transport.
This innovative project has a planned construction of new wind turbines
to supply 100% renewable electricity directly to Ballance's Kapuni site and is currently in the consenting process.
We are working with the community and stakeholders to determine the best siting and location for the new turbines. As the project evolves, we will communicate the processes involved as well as estimated time frames.
The Project Team at Hiringa Energy and Ballance Agri-Nutrients are meeting with local Hapu and members of the community to outline the project and seek input around how together, we can progress this exciting opportunity for the region and New Zealand.
