Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG) is close to finalising construction works on its SA hydrogen project, while also signing a new supply deal with BOC.
AGIG said it has completed installation of the electrolyser on the Hydrogen Park South Australia (HyP SA) project in SA’s Tonsley Innovation District, with the plant now undergoing commissioning activities.
The project has also made a new agreement with BOC, a subsidiary of Linde plc, to install tube trailer refilling infrastructure at HyP SA, which will enable the site to become a supplier of road-hauled hydrogen.
BOC plans to supply industrial customers in Whyalla and Adelaide with hydrogen output from HyP SA in a move that would replace current tube trailer hydrogen deliveries to Whyalla from Victoria.
“This initial partnership with BOC is a key enabler to further potential expansion to South Australia and wider industrial markets,” said AGIG CEO Ben Wilson.
“It also brings us a step closer to supplying hydrogen for vehicle refuelling in SA.
“Tube trailers are a well-established form of hydrogen transport.
“This new renewable hydrogen production source at HyP SA demonstrates the wider potential for this carbon-free gas and its ability to integrate into existing and future energy networks.”
Installation of the tube trailer infrastructure is expected to be completed by January 2021, while AGIG expects the supply of renewable hydrogen to commence at HyP SA later this year.
