Australia’s FFI Plans $8.4 Billion Green Hydrogen Project In Argentina

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on S & P Global.

A couple of weeks ago I had not heard of Fortescue Future Industries (FFI), but then they did the deal with JCB, that I wrote about in JCB Signs Green Hydrogen Deal Worth Billions.

This paragraph gives a few more details of the deal with Argentina.

The Australian company, which produces green hydrogen from electrolysis powered by renewable electricity, first plans to test the wind power potential in Rio Negro, a southern province in Patagonia, before building a pilot facility and then shifting into full-scale development.

This Google Map shows the Rio Negro province.

Note.

  1. The province is outlined in red.
  2. Buenos Aires is on the estuary of the River Plate in the North East corner of the map.
  3. Puerto Madryn is a convenient port to the South of Rio Negro, which was founded by the Welsh.

According to the article, it looks like much of the hydrogen will be shipped to Germany.

Conclusion

Fortescue Future Industries is extremely serious about hydrogen.

A Comment On The Obituary Of Sir Archie Lamb In The Times

In The Times today, there is an obituary of diplomat; Sir Archie Lamb.

This is one of the comments.

My husband comments: ‘When Lamb was knighted, he said to the Queen “may I ask something, Ma’am?” She replied “as one of my ambassadors, you may ask me anything” “ in that case, may I be knighted as Archie Lamb? I hate my given name, Albert.” “Ah,” said the Queen, “though you can change your family name, you cannot change your given name. But I can. Arise Sir Archie.” Archie told me the story, long long ago. Se non e vero, e ben trovato.’

Priceless!
