According to The Australian Financial Review, global giants ATCO and BOC Linde have been named preferred contractors to build a $593 million hydrogen plant and storage facility near Whyalla in South Australia, just 6km from billionaire Sanjeev Gupta’s Whyalla steelworks.
The two foreign players, which represent a larger consortium, were chosen from a field of 29 proposals for the plant, to be owned by SA taxpayers and operating by early 2026.
Canada’s ATCO has a large Australian business, while European industrial gas and engineering group BOC Linde is part of the $US179 billion ($283 billion) Linde Group. They are the preferred contractors to build a 250-megawatt hydrogen production facility, 200-megawatt hydrogen power plant and a hydrogen storage facility.
