Woodside eyes large-scale solar plant near Aussie LNG hub

Australia’s Woodside is exploring the supply of 50 MW of solar energy to its Pluto liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility on Western Australia’s Burrup Peninsular as part of its effort to reach net zero emissions.

“The solar power would be supplied from the proposed Woodside Power Project, which could comprise more than 210,000 solar panels, making it one of the largest solar projects in Western Australia,” Woodside said in a statement.
