South Australia will soon be home to a new Hydrogen Hub in Whyalla, on the Eyre Peninsula. The project is set to be operational by the end of 2025 and is supported by a $593 million dollar state government commitment.
Creating hundreds of local jobs, the new plant and storage facility is a key step in unlocking a myriad of opportunities for hydrogen across residential, commercial, industrial and export industries.
This comes after the success of pioneering project, Hydrogen Park South Australia (HyP SA); the first in Australia to deliver a renewable hydrogen blend to customers on the existing gas network.
Once complete, the Whyalla Hydrogen Hub will deliver approximately 200x the capacity of HyP SA.
We recently sat down with the Australian Gas Infrastructure Group at HyP SA, to explore the benefits of renewable hydrogen and how it works together with the electricity network to help achieve a net zero future. You can watch the video here.
Seeley International’s commitment to a cleaner, greener future has shaped operations across our 50 year history. That’s why we invest heavily in R&D, ensuring our gas heating products are “hydrogen-ready” and support the invaluable work being done in this space.
