South Australia's first hydrogen plant under construction

02 Dec 2019 12:01 PM | Sonia Harvey (Administrator)

AUSTRALIAN Gas Infrastructure Group has officially started construction of South Australia’s first hydrogen production plant in South Adelaide.

The Hydrogen Park SA is an A$11.4 million small-scale facility consisting of a 1.25 megawatt electrolyser which splits water into oxygen and hydrogen gas.

AGIG said the facility would be operational next year, with hydrogen produced and blended into the local gas distribution network by the end of 2020.  

Today AGIG chief executive Ben Wilson and South Australian energy minister Dan van Holst Pellekaan formally launched the construction start-up.

"This is a significant milestone in South Australia and for hydrogen in Australia," Wilson said.

"This will enable residents in parts of the Adelaide suburb of Mitchell Park, to become South Australia's first natural gas customers to receive a blended 5% renewable gas - a combination of natural gas and renewable hydrogen."

AGIG received A$4.9 million from the state government's Renewable Technology Fund to build and operate the project.

Valmec was named key project development partner for the facility in July.
