The Australian Government is investing $70 million into the H2Kwinana Hydrogen Hub in Western Australia (WA).
Hydrogen hubs are locations where producers, users and exporters of hydrogen work side by side to share infrastructure and expertise. They will help the hydrogen industry springboard to scale.
Kwinana is a well-established industrial zone and critical hub for fuel to keep WA moving.
As part of the Kwinana hub, bp Australia will install one of the largest electrolysers to have reached front end engineering and design stage.
The project plans to install 100 MW of electrolyser capacity at the site. It has the potential to expand to a total of 1.5 GW production.
When operational, this phase of the project is expected to produce over 14,000 tonnes of green hydrogen per annum. This will be for industrial use and heavy transport.
Construction of the H2Kwinana Hydrogen Hub will start in 2026 and is expected to be delivered by mid-2027.
The government is investing over half a billion dollars in regional Hydrogen Hubs, including in Gladstone, Townsville, the Hunter, Bell Bay, Pilbara and Port Bonython.
