CleanCo is a Queensland publicly-owned electricity generator and operates the Swanbank E combined-cycle gas-fired power station, near Brisbane, capable of generating up to 385 MW of power. Once part of a precinct of coal-fired power stations – Swanbank A, B, C and D – Swanbank E remains the only operating power station on the site.
The project proponent will be undertaking precinct planning which will investigate renewable-based hydrogen production and refuelling facilities, on-site solar and modifications to feed renewable hydrogen into Swanbank E power station.
In August 2021, the Queensland Government announced AUD$1.5 million of funding in support of the development of concept-level design options as part of its COVID-19 economic recovery plan.
