Queensland green lights new hydrogen centre

QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA

A new green energy manufacturing centre in Queensland’s Gladstone region has been officially opened today underlining the Australian Government’s delivery of a ‘Future Made in Australia’. 

Federal Minister for Industry and Science, Ed Husic, attended the launch of the new Fortescue hydrogen electrolyser advanced facility alongside Queensland Premier, Steven Miles.

This demonstrates our commitment to a Future Made in Australia, while also helping the country make the transition to net zero,” said Minister Husic.

“We can cut emissions and increase jobs at the same time.

“Regional Queensland can play an important role here, and we are investing in its ability to do just that.

“This Hydrogen Gigafactory shows what can be achieved when government and industry work together for the long-term good of the country.”

The facility will produce green hydrogen at an industrial scale using a fully automated production line and several cleanroom robotic assembly cells and lines.

The Australian Government supported the project by investing $44.9 million in Fortescue Future Industries to construct its electrolyser manufacturing facility.

Project partners include research institutions CSIRO and Central Queensland University.
