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.
