Hydrogen Park Gladstone

Hydrogen

Australia’s first whole of network decarbonisation project

Hydrogen Park Gladstone (HyP Gladstone) continues AGIG’s hydrogen leadership by extending our renewable gas footprint into Queensland and delivering the first whole of gas network decarbonisation project. 

 

About Hydrogen Park Gladstone

HyP Gladstone builds on our Hydrogen Park South Australia (HyP SA) facility to deliver additional learnings and lower emissions for customers and the gas sector as a whole.

Supported by the Queensland Government with grant funding of more than $1.7 million, HyP Gladstone supports Queensland’s target of net zero emissions by 2050 and its  Hydrogen Strategy by supporting Gladstone’s vision to be a key hub for Queensland’s domestic and hydrogen export industry, just as it is for natural gas today.

The $4.2 million HyP Gladstone facility will produce renewable hydrogen using water and renewable electricity from the local electricity grid, using a 175kW PEM electrolyser. The renewable hydrogen will be blended with natural gas, at volumes of up to 10% for supply to more than 770 existing customers on Gladstone’s entire gas network.

Beginning production in 2022, HyP Gladstone’s renewable hydrogen blend of up to 10% builds on the 5% target for supply to customers from HyP SA and will be the highest volume of hydrogen delivered by an existing gas network. It will also be the first project to supply a renewable hydrogen blend to commercial and industrial facilities via the existing gas network at this target volume. 

Current work is focused on delivering detailed engineering and design plans as well as stakeholder and customer engagement.
