Key component installed at pioneering hydrogen park in Adelaide

A “significant” milestone has been achieved today at a pioneering renewable hydrogen production facility being developed in Adelaide, Australia with the installation of its key component, an electrolyser.

The Siemens 1.25MW proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyser being installed at the Hydrogen Park South Australia (HyP SA), in the Tonsley Innovation District, will employ electricity from renewable sources to split water into oxygen and hydrogen gas, producing up to 480kg of hydrogen per day.

The renewable hydrogen will then be blended with natural gas for feeding into AGN’s existing suburban natural gas networks.

HyP SA’s developer Australian Gas Networks (AGN), part of the Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG) welcomed the milestone saying it provided a visible measure of the groups push to establish nation-leading hydrogen projects in four states.
