Wood appointed owner’s engineer for strike’s fertiliser plant in western Australia

Wood, the global consulting and engineering company, has been appointed as owner’s engineer for the delivery of Project Haber, Strike Energy’s $3bn 1.4mtpa urea fertiliser production facility to be built in Western Australia.

This state-of-the-art low-carbon fertiliser plant will reduce Australia’s carbon footprint in the agricultural industry. Project Haber will have the unique ability to use hydrogen from a 10MW onsite electrolyser in addition to large scale behind the meter wind and solar generation in partnership with Strike’s vertically integrated low-cost Perth Basin gas resources, creating the potential to generate the world’s lowest carbon fertiliser and reducing Australia’s reliance on imports.

As owner’s engineer, Wood will provide technical and engineering oversight services for the duration of the project to monitor and assess the work in progress, ensuring the Engineering, Procurement and Construction contractor delivers work consistent with the project’s requirements.

The Strike fertiliser plant has signed up Koch Industries as its primary offtaker and will look to meet the local demand of the Western Australia wheat belt and, as it is located near the Geraldton port, will be strategically positioned to meet export demands for product throughout the 20-to-30-year life cycle of the plant.
