SA greenlights AGIG's hydrogen plans

30 Sep 2019 2:57 PM | Sonia Harvey (Administrator)

THE South Australian government has approved Australian Gas Infrastructure Group subsidiary  Australian Gas Networks’ development application for the construction and operation of a A$11.4 million renewable hydrogen production facility.  

he planned facility will be located at the Tonsley Innovation District to the south of capital Adelaide.  

The planned Hydrogen Park SA (HyP SA) will be producing from the middle of next year.  

"This is a significant milestone in South Australia's continuing transition to a cleaner energy future. It propels the State's status as a leader in renewable technology and a first mover in hydrogen," AGIG CEO Ben Wilson said.  

"At HyP SA we will be building a 1.25MW electrolyser as the first Australian demonstration project of its scale and size, with small quantities of renewable hydrogen produced and blended into the local gas distribution network next year."  

He said by next year residents in Adelaide's Mitchell Park would be using gas with 5% hydrogen added to the mix.  

The state government has thrown $4.9 million to the project via its Renewable Technology Fund.
