Townsville City Council has formally approved the first development application over land within the Lansdown Eco-Industrial Precinct, paving the way for an Edify Energy hydrogen plant.

Edify proposes to build and operate an up to 1 GW green hydrogen production plant as well as a behind-the-meter solar photovoltaic and battery storage facility at the precinct. 

Edify’s initial plans involve generating green hydrogen from a pilot scale facility of 10 megawatts and increasing capacity in stages to meet the needs of a growing domestic and export green hydrogen market.

Mayor Jenny Hill said the application had been independently assessed by council’s planning officers and approved with conditions relating to development staging, roadworks and traffic safety upgrades.

“Momentum continues to build behind the development of northern Australia’s first environmentally sustainable, advanced manufacturing, processing and technology estate right here in Townsville,” Cr Hill said.

“Edify’s application is a major vote of confidence in our city, our developing green hydrogen industry and our Lansdown Eco-Industrial Precinct.

“Edify’s desire to establish itself at the precinct supports Council’s ongoing efforts to work with both the State and Federal Government through the Townsville City Deal to get the precinct investment ‘turn-key’ ready as soon as possible.”

Edify Energy chief executive officer John Cole said the company looked forward to working with local businesses, contractors, and suppliers and other stakeholders.

“We’re very pleased to be a leading player in the establishment of Lansdown, a blueprint for new age environmentally sustainable industrial ecosystems,” Mr Cole said. 

“The eco-industrial precinct not only supports the use of natural mineral resources for advanced manufacturing and production, but also the use of renewable energy from the approved and co-located Majors Creek solar power station, utilising advanced grid friendly technology and storage to dispatch renewable energy when it is most needed.

“Electricity from renewable sources is an essential part of green hydrogen production and the decarbonising of advanced manufacturing in Australia.”

Cr Hill said the Lansdown Eco-Industrial Precinct had the potential to significantly boost Townsville and North Queensland’s economy for decades.

Queensland Pacific Minerals and Imperium3 Townsville (iM3TSV) have also signed up to establish themselves at the precinct.

Queensland Pacific Minerals plans to produce battery-grade nickel and cobalt sulphate from nickel-cobalt ore while iM3TSV plans to develop an 18 GWh lithium-ion battery cell manufacturing facility.
