Targeting a new green ammonia production and export project in Western Australia. The project aim is to export ammonia at-scale to international destinations.
BE&R lead a high-level study and review of three ammonia export locations and infrastructure options. Identifying and defining mitigating actions to any key risks to successful project execution.
The project envisaged a solar and wind farm based power supply to an ammonia production plant, ammonia storage and export pumping at the plant, an offloading line from the storage to an offshore export terminal, and loading facilities to ammonia carriers.
Key risks considered were
Outside of the scope of the study BE&R developed in-house a WA specific NH3 carrier vessel, designed to minimise draft constraints and to optimise deadweight capacity based on the NH3 plant production profile.
BE&R leveraged our recent experience conducting studies on import and transport logistics for green ammonia, and other alternative fuels to provide valuable insights into suitable concept design and minimising project risks.
The BE&R team evaluated the risks in a workshop environment using a likelihood and consequence risk scoring method, conducted with the client team. The Workshop resulted in a detailed risk register highlighting red flags (potential show-stoppers), mitigations and recommended selected options formulating a way forward for the project.
