Elogen, a leader in PEM electrolysis, specializing in the design and fabrication of electrolysers to produce green hydrogen, and HIFraser Group, a provider of technical, engineering and manufacturing solutions to a wide range of industries in Australia and New Zealand, have signed an exclusive collaboration agreement to supply electrolysers in Australia and New Zealand to produce green hydrogen.

As part of this collaboration, HIFraser will locally assemble the balance-of-plant of Elogen’s state-of the-art electrolysers and will adapt them to Australian standards and the requirements of customers in the region. HIFraser will also accompany the customers with maintenance support after delivery of the electrolysis units. The global decarbonization of industry requires significant technological advancements, among which green hydrogen will play a key role. In Australia and New Zealand, the potential applications for green hydrogen production are myriad and varied, ranging from uses such as stored renewable energy in industries such as mining, oil and gas to carbon-free fuel for transport and defense.

Jean-Baptiste Choimet, Managing Director of Elogen, comments: “With this new partnership, Elogen will enter the Australian market. With a strong potential for affordable solar energy supply, Australia is well positioned to become a world leader in the production of green hydrogen. HIFraser Group is the ideal partner to supply Elogen’s state-of-the-art technologies to hydrogen producers in Australia and New Zealand. This partnership will enable to offer attractive and localized solutions in Australia, thanks to HIFraser engineering and assembly know-how.” Jodie Draper, Managing Director of HIFraser Group, declares: “We are proud of this partnership with Elogen, which will supply a proven European technology in Australia and New Zealand. The applications for green hydrogen production are many and varied and our local technical and engineering expertise will allow us to “Australianise” the design of Elogen electrolysers to meet each customer’s needs and provide them with ongoing local support.”
