The Hydrogen Production Facility Supporting Australia’s Net Zero Objectives
Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG) will soon begin construction of what it says is one of the most significant hydrogen production facilities in the country. Hydrogen Industry Leaders explores how it will accelerate Australia’s energy transition.
Expected to commence operations in mid-2025, the facility will produce renewable, carbon-free hydrogen. Hydrogen Park Murray Valley will deliver an up to 10 per cent hydrogen blend into the existing natural gas supply to over 40,000 customers in the Albury-Wodonga region.
The facility will utilise a 10-megawatt electrolyser, which is eight times the capacity of the largest operational electrolyser in Australia – AGIA’s Hydrogen Park South Australia (HyP SA).
It is ideally located on the Hume Highway as a potential supply for future renewable hydrogen refuelling stations along one of Australia’s busiest transport routes.
Also, the project is co-located with West Wodonga Wastewater Treatment Plant, which provides potential future synergies to use reclaimed water to produce renewable hydrogen in the future.
The project aims to participate in Greenpower’s Renewable Gas Certification Pilot to create Renewable Gas Guarantee of Origin (RGG0) certificates, which will be used by Mars Petcare Australia to deliver on its own net zero targets by 2040.
