Plug Power Partners with Allied Green Ammonia for a 3GW Electrolyzer Plant in Australia

Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ: PLUG), a prominent player in hydrogen solutions, announced a Basic Engineering and Design Package (BEDP) contract with Allied Green Ammonia (AGA), targeting the development of a three-gigawatt (GW) electrolyzer plant in Australia. This plant is set to support AGA’s upcoming green ammonia production facility in the Northern Territory, marking a significant step toward advancing the green hydrogen economy.

This BEDP contract is crucial for AGA, as it aids the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) phase and integrates Plug’s advanced electrolyzers into the foundational plant design, facilitating final investment decisions expected by the fourth quarter of 2025. This move is aligned with the recent memorandum of understanding to supply Plug’s Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolyzers, with deliveries beginning in early 2027.

Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug, commented on the project’s progression to the BEDP phase, highlighting its readiness for further development. “We are now supporting 7.5 GW of global projects through BEDP contracts, underscoring our commitment to scaling green hydrogen solutions,” he stated.

Alfred Benedict, Founder & Managing Director of AGA, remarked on the collaboration, noting, “This partnership with Plug is pivotal as we aim to establish one of the largest green ammonia facilities globally. Our strategic location near Asia enhances our capability to meet the rising demand for green ammonia in the region.”

The green hydrogen produced will help decarbonize ammonia production by replacing conventional Steam Methane Reforming (SMR) techniques. Plug’s technology not only reduces environmental impact but also optimizes operational efficiency by minimizing the need for downstream compression and utilizing the oxygen by-product to enhance combustion in power plants.

AGA’s proposed facility, leveraging the abundant renewable resources of the Gove Peninsula, aims to produce 2,700 metric tons per day of green ammonia. This strategic setup will cater to the growing needs of Asian markets, ensuring a consistent and eco-friendly supply chain.

Plug Power’s role as a leading PEM electrolyzer manufacturer is reinforced by this project, adding to its significant portfolio of BEDP contracts now totaling 7.5 GW, including other projects in the United States, Europe, and now Australia. This network of BEDPs supports Plug’s strategic growth targets and its vision of a decarbonized industrial future.
