GeelongPort is expanding its port operations and developing the Geelong Hydrogen Hub as part of its energy precinct.
The establishment of the Geelong Hydrogen Hub is yet another step toward achieving our goal of becoming Australia’s most sustainable bulk port and will help progress GeelongPort toward its emissions reduction targets.
The Geelong Hydrogen Hub is part of GeelongPort’s growing energy precinct, a production and distribution facility for green hydrogen that will accelerate Victoria’s transition to clean energy and create jobs for the future.
We recognise that climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our times, and we need to do everything we can to respond and minimise the impact that climate change will have on our lives and communities.
As a port operator and critical regional gateway for Victoria’s supply chains, we need to proactively respond to the impacts of climate change to ensure continued sustainability and resilience of businesses and communities that rely on us so heavily.
About the Hydrogen Hub
The Geelong Hydrogen Hub will include the necessary infrastructure to help us create a port for the future. Infrastructure to be delivered to establish the Geelong Hydrogen Hub includes:
The Geelong Hydrogen Hub will become a production and distribution facility for green hydrogen. Green hydrogen will be produced at the Geelong Hydrogen Hub and infrastructure will be developed to enable its distribution to businesses that need it for energy supply, including energy retailers, for medium to large scale use. Necessary pier infrastructure will be built to facilitate ship operations. These facilities will complement GeelongPort’s existing world class infrastructure and operations.
Geelong Hydrogen Hub partners
GeelongPort has partnered with Startupbootcamp as part of their Greater Geelong Hydrogen Technology cluster and is inviting all interested parties, including energy manufacturers and retailers, local businesses and logistics companies to identify additional partnership opportunities in developing the Geelong Hydrogen Hub at GeelongPort.
We have already partnered with CAC-H2 as the Hub’s foundation green hydrogen developer and will be seeking further expressions of interest from energy manufacturers, retailers, and local businesses.
The Geelong Hydrogen Hub is an exciting initiative for the Geelong community, bringing opportunities for businesses, creating long term sustainable jobs and boosting the economy.
The Geelong Hydrogen Hub will become a production and distribution facility for green hydrogen. When the hub is fully developed, it will have the ability to import green ammonia that can be converted to generate green hydrogen for commercial and domestic use.
GeelongPort has a strong focus on community and stakeholder engagement and is focussed on developing the Geelong Hydrogen Hub in partnership with our community stakeholders.
Consultation is key and Geelong has a real opportunity to showcase the benefits of hydrogen and the environmental benefits associated with it.
We will be engaging with the local community early in 2022 to establish Geelong as a leader in developing green hydrogen and the transition to clean energy.
Seeking expressions of interest
GeelongPort is seeking further expressions of interest from commercial energy market participants who are considering either importing or exporting green hydrogen or using green ammonia to service domestic and overseas markets.
We are also seeking expression from local businesses who wish to access green hydrogen as a sustainable fuel source and help reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of their operations and contribute to a clean energy future.
Please complete the following survey if you are interested in partnering with GeelongPort to grow the Geelong Hydrogen Hub and establish Geelong as a leader in the development of green hydrogen and the transition to clean energy.
