Hydrogen energyProject Renewable Hydrogen Demonstration for Heavy Transport
This first report documents the lessons learnt during the early development of this project including the lack of specialised hydrogen expertise in Australia and the impact of supply chain issues.
The Sun HQ Hydrogen Hub (SunHQ) is a 1 MW PEM electrolyser project, with on-site compression, storage and dispensing facilities.The facility is to be owned and operated by Ark Energy Corporation. The project will be co-located within the Sun Metals zinc refinery precinct in a Behind-The-Meter (BTM) configuration with the 121 MWAC Sun Metals Solar Farm. The use-case for the green hydrogen is five 140-tonne rated hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Trucks (FCETs), which will displace approximately 1,275 tonnes of CO2 per annum.
