According to The Australian Financial Review, the West Australian government is set to accommodate any move led by Andrew Forrest to build a port near Esperance on the state’s south coast and is confident a flood of other multi-billion dollar green hydrogen investments will finally lead to a new port at Oakajee on the mid-west coast.
The government is on the verge of allocating 700 hectares of land at Oakajee, once touted as home to a $9 million deep water iron ore port, to backers of green hydrogen production.
WA hydrogen industry minister Alannah MacTiernan left for South Korea on Wednesday to continue talks with big investors who are eyeing projects around Oakajee and other coastal sites.
She said the talks so far had involved the likes of steelmaker POSCO, LG Group, Samsung and KOGAS.
