Project description

A feasibility study will review the commercial and technical feasibility of establishing a renewable hydrogen hub and the production of hydrogen-derived products at AGL’s Torrens Island site, as well as mapping key operational and commercial plans for the project and outlining the development of a production timeline. The study is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2022.

AGL is seeking to transition its Torrens Island site to an integrated industrial energy hub following the decommissioning of its long-standing Torrens A and B power generating units, completion of the (gas-fired) Barker Inlet Power Station (built adjacent to the Torrens Island B station) and development of a 250 MW battery on the site.

The feasibility study will leverage the input of industry partners across multiple sectors, who have signed Memorandums of Understanding in this context.

The feasibility study will explore a wide range of end uses, including early potential for co-firing hydrogen at the Barker Inlet Power Station, the creation of 100% green gas networks for industry, and the development of low-carbon chemicals and future fuels across the whole supply chain from the production of renewables-based hydrogen to export uses.
