Australia-based ReNu, its subsidiary Countrywide Hydrogen Private Limited and Anantara Energy Holdings Private Limited, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to conduct concept and feasibility studies for a large-scale green hydrogen facility in Indonesia. Plans include the development of a 10 MW electrolyser in the Karimun Special Economic Zone (SEZ), which has potential to produce around 1,650 tonnes of hydrogen annually. The feasibility studies will be jointly funded by ReNu and Anantra.

If the studies show positive results, Anantra intends to develop a 100 MWp photovoltaic (PV) plant to supply power for the production process. The capacity will be part of a larger 3.5 GW solar project that the JV is developing in Indonesia’s Riau archipelago.

Once production commences in 2025, the facility will be able to supply green hydrogen to the consumers in Indonesia as well as export it to neighbouring SEA countries and eventually Europe.
