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.


  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.


Fortescue Future Industries is extremely serious about hydrogen.

  1. A really worthwhile read from the Sydney Morning Herald about Fortescue Metals Group the parent company of FFI. Seems FFI have their eyes on other places than Argentina.

    • Thanks for that!

      They are not hiding their light under a bushel either. Yesterday, at the Angel, I saw a 43 bus all decked out in a green livery advertising their green hydrogen policies. As the bus goes through the City was that their target market?

      I shall post, when I get a picture!

      • Now I understand why the woman in this FFI video has an English accent, I think you’ve hit the nail on the head regarding the City and the Establishment.
