We here at the Buckeye Valley Chamber are confident that your presence will contribute to the vibrant and dynamic community here in Buckeye,” Vice President of Membership and “Friend Raiser” Tedy Burton said. “We believe in fostering a supportive and collaborative environment where a business can thrive.

Fortescue hosted a soil turning ceremony for its first U.S.-based green hydrogen production facility, Arizona Hydrogen, on May 3. The 158-acre site is part of the Australian company’s $550-million investment in green hydrogen production in the U.S., according to the press release.

“The U.S. has made serious strides in attracting global investment in green hydrogen and decarbonization projects like Fortescue’s solar- and wind-powered Arizona Hydrogen facility,” Fortescue Executive Chair and Founder Andrew Forrest said in a press release. “Fortescue is unashamedly a first mover in this space, the world needs us to move quickly.”

According to data cited in the release from NDP Analytics, the two-year construction phase of Arizona Hydrogen could create up to 2,224 jobs and $124.2 million in wages through direct, indirect and induced positions.

It calculates that the facility has the potential to add $59.2 million to the state’s gross domestic profit and generate $9.1 million in income and sales taxes at both the state and local levels annually.

The plant is estimated to produce 11,000 tons of liquid green hydrogen annually, offsetting the impact of heavy-duty on-road transportation.
