Hazer Group has been awarded $250,000 of McGowan Government funding to complete a feasibility study on the creation of a renewable hydrogen transport hub in Western Australia.
The aim of the study will be to identify and aggregate customers for hydrogen-based low emission transport applications and match these with specific, implementable infrastructure and hydrogen supply solutions, including supply from the proposed Hazer Commercial Demonstration Project.
The hub would be located in the City of Mandurah and Hazer said it has been in dialogue with the city to identify potential users for hydrogen in Mandurah and the surrounding region.
Hazer’s Managing Director Geoff Ward said, “We are delighted to have been selected for funding by the Western Australian State Government.”
“We gratefully acknowledge the support of the state government to the development of a low emissions hydrogen industry in Western Australia.”
“Building customer demand and demonstrating effective hydrogen supply and infrastructure solutions are key to growing our hydrogen industry, both domestically and for export.”
“In addition to developing renewable hydrogen production through projects such as our Hazer Commercial Demonstration Project, we also need to develop customer markets to ensure that full economic and environmental benefits of producing, using and exporting hydrogen are realised.”
This project by Hazer Group is one of seven renewable hydrogen feasibility studies across Western Australia to receive funding from the McGowan Government.
Announced today by Regional Development Minister Alannah MacTiernan, the government is allocating $1.68m to seven projects through the McGowan Government’s Renewable Hydrogen Fund.
