Project description

CRH–Tasmania is a project that would supply renewable hydrogen to the domestic market throughout the State.

As a 10 megawatt electrolyser project powered by hydro and wind power, it will be located in the northwest of Tasmania near Burnie with the precise location being determined in consultation with various parties, including TasNetworks.

The domestic offtake opportunities lie in mobility (trucks, buses and ferries), blending hydrogen with natural gas in collaboration with Tas Gas, displacing diesel where it is used for power generation and for supply to industry.

On November 10, 2021, ASX-listed company, ReNu Energy Limited (ASX:RNE) announced it is acquiring CRH under a scrip-for-scrip transaction, with the ASX announcement noting such transaction would allow CRH to progress its opportunities.
