Topsoe will deploy its new dynamic ammonia technology (DynAMMO™) at Allied Green Ammonia’s under-development project on the Gove Peninsula, Northern Territory. There are also ongoing discussions for Topsoe to provide solid oxide electrolysis units for hydrogen production. Allied is targeting a production start in late 2028, with an initial capacity of more than 900,000 tonnes per year. In September, Allied Green Ammonia engaged Técnicas Reunidas to begin FEED work on the project.

We are excited to embark on this journey with Allied and to support the growing demand for e-fuels production in Australia. Allied’s project is completely in line with our ambition to deliver carbon reduction technologies for reaching net zero. Our dynamic green ammonia solution supports this by enabling the production of e-fuels for energy-intensive industries and long-distance transportation.

Kim Hedegaard, CEO Power-to-X, at Topsoe in his organisation’s official press release, 15 Nov 2023

We are confident that the geographical location and existing infrastructure in Gove in combination with the most energy efficient hydrogen and green ammonia technology will lead to the lowest levelized cost of green ammonia production in Australia. We are delighted to receive strong endorsement from the local Gumatj Corporation and the Northern Territory government, both of whom eagerly support the development of our green ammonia project in Gove.

Alfred Benedict, Founder & Managing Director of Allied Green Ammonia in Topsoe’s official press release, 15 Nov 2023

Topsoe reports that its DynAMMO™ technology enables rapid, bidirectional ramping (>3% per minute) between 100% and 10% production capacity, or vice versa. Hydrogen storage can also be minimised, reducing capital costs. Topsoe’s solid oxide electrolysis technology will be utilised at renewable ammonia projects in Texas & Indonesia, with an electrolyser manufacturing facility under construction in Denmark.
