Global professional services company GHD has joined the Australian Hydrogen Council – an association formed to accelerate the Australian hydrogen economy.
Through its new membership GHD will share its industry knowledge and experience to help build a strong hydrogen future for Australia.
“Our Australian Hydrogen Council membership reflects our commitment and passion for enabling a robust, sustainable hydrogen industry in Australia,” said Phil Duthie, GHD’s Executive General Manager, Australia.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to work with other members and the broader industry to help lay the groundwork and ensure Australia realises the enormous potential of hydrogen.”
GHD’s primary representative on the council, Rory Quinn, Technical Director of Plant and Process, holds more than 20 years of industry experience, with a strong focus on future energy options.
“The Australian hydrogen industry is growing, and our members are at the forefront, leading the way in hydrogen technology and innovation to build a clean and resilient energy future,” said Dr Fiona Simon, CEO of the Australian Hydrogen Council.
“I am delighted to welcome GHD to our membership and look forward to working with them to ensure that Australia become a global leader in supplying hydrogen around the world.”
GHD is currently working with clients within Australia to develop a variety of hydrogen projects across Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia, Victoria and New South Wales.
“In responding to our client needs, we can draw from the in-depth knowledge of our global technical teams as well as leverage our first-hand experience in the development of similar industries,” Duthie continued.
“We believe the continued close collaboration between governments, industry, researchers and communities in the coming year will be vital to Australia realising the potential of hydrogen.”
“We’re very excited to be working with our clients, their communities and the broader industry to help foster this potential.”
