Port of Victoria: Harnessing the benefits of Green Energy
First Ammonia seeks to develop one of the world's first commercial-scale green ammonia production facilities at the Port of Victoria. The plant would use renewable solar and wind power to fuel energy-efficient solid oxide electrolyzer cells (SOEC) that produce ammonia from water and air. The plant is expected to be fully operational in late 2025 and create approximately 50 locally sourced jobs.

The Port of Victoria is investing in green energy because it is the future. Renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and water are naturally replenishing and produce no greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels. This reduces air pollution, conserves natural resources, and diversifies the energy supply, creating economic development...
In the last decade, wind and solar deployment have increased more rapidly than any other non-combustion-based electricity-generating technology in America. We are embracing renewables at a remarkable rate, with clean energy now outpacing coal for the first time in the modern era. Wind farms, solar panels, hydropower stations, and even...
