Lion Energy to build its first green hydrogen hub at Port of Brisbane
Lion Energy Limited is pleased to report it has signed a Heads of Agreement (HOA) with Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) for a long-term lease of land within the Port of Brisbane (PoB), where it intends to build and operate its first hydrogen generation and refueling hub.
The hub is geared towards heavy mobility fleets with an early focus on supplying domestic public bus fleets, and Lion believes it will be the first of its scale in Queensland Australia. The procurement of major equipment is underway and expected commissioning in Q1 2024.
“The location at the Port of Brisbane is highly strategic due to its proximity to the majority of Brisbane’s 70-plus bus depots, and also the significant heavy vehicle traffic to and from the port,” said Tom Soulsby”.
He further added, “Our site will initially produce and dispense some 420 kg green hydrogen a day, but with the ability to quickly double production to respond to an increasing demand”.
The facility at the PoB will include all the equipment required to generate and dispense green hydrogen as well as the ability to load compressed hydrogen onto tube trailers for transportation to other sites/spokes/depots.
