Project description

Aurizon, a large Australian rail freight company, plans to use four hydrogen-powered prime mover vehicles to move goods in and around its freight operations at the Stuart Freight Terminal and the Port of Townsville. The project also includes the installation of a hydrogen refuelling station suitable for heavy vehicles.

Renewables-based hydrogen would be purchased from the Ark Energy operated SunHQ Hydrogen Hub project in Townsville via a commercial agreement and transported from point of production to the hydrogen refuelling station via a hydrogen tube trailer.

In September 2022, the Hydrogen Mobility Project received a grant of up to AUD$5 million under Round Two of the Queensland Government Hydrogen Industry Development Fund.

This project description has been reviewed by the project proponent.
