Aldoga Solar Farm to shine light on supply chain procurement and tender opportunties at industry conference.

Did you know the Aldoga Solar Farm will feed the Gladstone hydrogen facility proposed by a Stanwell-led consortium?

Queensland’s Stanwell Corporation and ACCIONA Energia signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in December on future energy supply for the proposed CQ-H2 three-gigawatt hydrogen facility at Aldoga near Gladstone.

The Aldoga Solar Farm, a proposed A$0.5 billion 600MWp solar facility, located approximately 20 km north-west of Gladstone will be EDQ’s flagship renewable energy project which is expected to create up to 350 jobs during construction and 14 ongoing jobs once operational.

CQ-H2 is to be delivered by a consortium of Australian and international partners including Japanese companies Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Kansai Electric Power Company and Marubeni, and Australian energy infrastructure business APA Group.

Stanwell chief executive officer Michael O’Rourke said the MoU continued to highlight the importance Stanwell placed on developing strategic partnerships across the supply chain to support the development of Queensland’s renewable energy future.

“Stanwell is developing a high-quality, value-for-money pipeline of renewable energy and storage projects to support its long-term objectives of providing low emissions solutions to commercial and industrial retail customers and supplying renewable energy to the CQ-H2 project,” Mr O’Rourke said.

“We will leverage the direct connection to the Aldoga Solar Farm to power stage one of the proposed CQ-H2 hydrogen facility, which is a positive step towards supporting the production of renewable hydrogen in the Gladstone region.

The MoU between Stanwell and ACCIONA is significant because at its peak, the CQ-H2 project will provide more than 5000 new jobs over its 30-year life with flow-on benefits to construction, utilities, heavy manufacturing and local service industries.

The Aldoga Solar Farm is due to commence construction in September 2023, with generation output scheduled to commence in December 2025.

To learn more about the Aldoga Solar Farm, Acciona Energia will be presenting their project’s procurement/tender opportunities at the online Connecting Renewable Energy Conference Queensland on Thursday, April 7. To find out more CONNECT HERE:
