  • Previously Total Eren, TE H2 is a joint venture of TotalEnergies and EREN.
  • Using solar energy, the facility will produce over 80,000 tonnes of green hydrogen each year.
  • The project expects to create some 800 jobs during construction and 175 positions once operational.

TE H2’s Darwin H2 Hub has been awarded Major Project Status by the Northern Territory Government.

Major Project Status is a formal recognition of a project’s significance through its contribution to economic growth, decarbonisation, employment and renewable energy supply chains in the Northern Territory.

“‘Major Project Status’ marks a significant milestone in the project development. The current objective is to pursue studies in order to consider Final Investment Decision (FID) by 2027,” said TE H2 Australia’s managing director, Kam Ho.

Delivering green energy

The Darwin H2 Hub will be a green hydrogen production facility and expects to produce over 80,000 tonnes of renewable-based hydrogen each year, using solar energy. The hydrogen will be for both domestic and international export.

“With our abundant solar resources and our strategic location to support exports into the Indo-Pacific, the production of green hydrogen is a key opportunity for the Territory to address the growing demand for this green energy globally,” said Northern Territory Chief Minister, Eva Lawler.

“The proposed Darwin H2 Hub is TE H2’s cornerstone project and aims to be the Northern Territory’s first solar-powered green hydrogen production and export project, delivering sustainable and cost-competitive power for domestic use and global export,” said Ho.

Delivering jobs and growth

The Darwin H2 Hub has the potential to create some 800 jobs during construction and 175 positions once the facility is operational.

“Creating the jobs now and into the future is the priority of the Territory Labor Government. And this project does just that. It will create approximately 800 jobs during construction, and 175 ongoing local jobs,” said the Chief Minister

“The TE H2 project is an example of how this Government sources new clean energy projects that will significantly contribute to the Territory’s drive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
