Circular power generation
Hydrogen Fuels Australia is an industry pioneer in the development of next generation modular hydrogen fuel generation with integrated refuelling facilities in Melbourne, Australia. H2FA is launching Australia’s first integrated modular hydrogen fuel generation and refuelling operation at its greenfield facility in Truganina, near Laverton.
Founded on environmentally sustainable and low impact concepts, H2FA’s operation uses its own electrolysis assets (in island mode) to convert renewable power into green hydrogen. H2FA’s facilities will not be connected to the energy grid; rather, they will rely on the circular generation of power.
GHS decided from its inception to focus on improving technology to make it more suitable for today’s demands for hydrogen produced from only renewable energy.
H2FA is partnering with some of the world’s leading suppliers of industrial hydrogen equipment through its work with Skai Energies. H2FA will utilise Nilsson Energy (Sweden) RE8760 technology to manage the site micro-grid, allowing all facilities to operate as an island and be completely self-sufficient.
Contained within the Nilsson Energy solution is critical equipment from:
- 100% self-sufficient
- Zero-emission fuel cells
- Clean hydrogen
H2FA’s 5-hectare site will initially be capable of producing 60-90kgs of green hydrogen from its own 750kw solar array. Ultimately the site will be scaled up to supply approximately 3,000kg with capacity to fuel 100+ vehicles per day.
Due to the modular nature of H2FA’s hydrogen power facilities, the site will have all equipment above ground, meaning that the operation can be re-located with minimal environmental impact and cost – a major advantage over legacy petroleum and diesel refuelling stations. H2FA’s new, completely self-sufficient operation in Melbourne represents a replicable standard for future stations throughout Australia by taking maximum advantage of its modular concept while also benefiting from a low cost operating model.
- Circular power generation
- Island mode
- Minimal environmental impact
The modular H2FA concept will enable the company to expand rapidly across Victoria and Australia to meet growing demand for hydrogen refuelling, while allocating capital and other resources with optimal efficiency.
In addition to housing Victoria’s first integrated modular commercial vehicle and mass transit hydrogen refuelling facility, the Truganina site will not only showcase innovative and imaginative design but also feature research and educational facilities.
