Commercial Demonstration Plant
HAZER® Group Limited (Hazer) is a pioneering ASX-listed technology development company undertaking the commercialisation of the HAZER® Process, a low-emission hydrogen and graphite production process. The HAZER® Process enables the effective conversion of natural gas and similar feedstocks, into hydrogen and high quality graphite, using iron ore as a process catalyst.
Primero was engaged to perform early contractor involvement services (ECI) for the design and in turn construction for Hazer’s proposed Commercial Demonstration Plant (CDP).
We are delighted to move forward into the engineering phase of the Hazer CDP with Primero. We believe Primero are an excellent fit for the capabilities we need to deliver the CDP and I am looking forward to the Hazer and Primero teams working closely together to deliver a successful project – Geoff Ward, Chief Executive Officer, Hazer Group
The Hazer CDP will be the first commercial scale demonstration of the Hazer Process. As part of the commercialisation strategy, Hazer is proposing to build a 100tpa (hydrogen production capacity) Commercial Demonstration Plant utilising waste biogas as it’s feedstock. The plant is proposed to be located at the Water Corporation’s Woodman Point Waste-Water Treatment Plant.
Primero was awarded a contract for an ECI scope of work as to allow Hazer to progress to full EPC contracting and procurement. The ECI phase is expected to be completed around November 2019 with completion of construction and commencement of commissioning targeted for Q4 2020.
