Melbourne Hydrogen Hub
Melbourne Hydrogen Hub (MHH)
This project involves the creation of a renewable hydrogen hub focussed on transport uses co-located in the Melbourne metropolitan area.
Countrywide Hydrogen Pty Ltd
|Main end-use classification:
Hydrogen mobility (main, including materials handling equipment), gas networks
Approximately 4.5 tonnes of hydrogen per day capacity
Countrywide Hydrogen is developing a renewable hydrogen hub located in Melbourne’s northern suburbs. The selected site will be secured under an option to lease.
The site is strategical placed in the northern Melbourne transport corridor, opening opportunities to supply renewable hydrogen to a fleet of fuel cell buses and trucks operating in the area, as well as distribution centres operating materials handling equipment.
The project is examining installation of a 10-megawatt (MW) electrolyser, with an output of around 4.5 tonnes of hydrogen per day.
The project is assessing options for blending hydrogen into local gas networks.
Countrywide Hydrogen has engaged Swinburne University’s Victorian Hydrogen Hub (VH2) to examine renewable energy supply options for the project.
Funding opportunities are presently being pursued.
