Engineering, design and advisory company Aurecon has appointed Thom Cameron as its new Hydrogen and Chemical Technology Director, a newly created role for the company.
Within his new role, Cameron will lead the integration of hydrogen technology as well as help clients unlock their future energy potential.
“Hydrogen is a great enabler for decarbonisation. It not only allows the transport of renewable energy from where it is cheap to produce, but it also forms a chemical feedstock that can be converted into energy or fuel,” said Cameron.
“Hydrogen has the potential to help decarbonise industries such as mining through hydrogen-fuelled truck fleets and remote power generation, and agriculture through green fertiliser, while there is potential for the shipping industry to be transformed through green ammonia as a marine bunker fuel, for example.”
Cameron joins Aurecon with experience as a business leader with a strong technical background across the oil, gas, petrochemical and energy industries.
His new Hydrogen and Chemicals Technology role complements the company’s existing expertise in the future energy value chain from renewable energy and generation, storage, network distribution and transmission through to transport and asset performance.
