Fuel Cells Works, Atco Welcomes Nsw Government's Investment In Hydrogen

ATCO welcomes the NSW Government investment in hydrogen development and release of the NSW Hydrogen Strategy.  

Russell James, General Manager, Hydrogen and Future Fuels, said, “Hydrogen is key to bolstering energy security and ATCO is actively investing in this future energy fuel to generate the development and expenditure needed to create greater opportunities for Australia. The NSW Hydrogen strategy will catapult our regional communities to the forefront of the future energy economy.”

ATCO is a global leader in hydrogen, and is already working closely with the Western Australian Government and ARENA to upscale Australia’s future fuel capabilities and establish commercial scale green hydrogen production in the Clean Energy Innovation Park.

ATCO has been producing green hydrogen at its Clean Energy Innovation Hub in WA for two years now. Green hydrogen from the Hub will be used to support a refuelling facility, currently under construction, and blending into the gas network in WA.

In NSW, ATCO’s pumped hydro project on the edge of the Central West Orana Renewable Energy Zone is already well advanced with construction planned to commence as early as 2023. Formal engagement with the EPC market recently commenced, and ATCO has received significant interest from potential offtake partners for both cap and tolling offtake agreements.

“We’ve been investing in hydrogen since 2017 and are strong believers in its value as we strive towards a cleaner energy future” said Ben Bolot, Executive General Manager, Business Development. “As we develop the Central West Pumped Hydro and our other capabilities in NSW, this announcement gives organisations like ours, who are committed to a new renewable energy future, the confidence to get on with the job.”

Congratulations Premier Perrottet, Minister Kean, Deputy Premier Toole and DPIE Energy.
