Pure Hydrogen signs water deal for Gladstone plant
The company said the contract with the Gladstone Area Water Board was among its initiatives to secure supply of critical inputs for Project Jupiter to proceed.
The water supply contract is subject to conditions including project approvals, FID
of the project and building a connecting water pipeline to Pure Hydrogen’s site.
“We are now systematically and methodically putting in place all the key elements for the successful development and delivery of the Project Jupiter hydrogen plant, one of four large-scale projects we plan to develop on Australia’s East Coast,” managing director Scott Brown said.
“Electricity supply is another key input and our planned site is ideally located to achieve seamless connectivity. We anticipate providing further updates as we continue to progress and make solid progress with our projects.”
Project Jupiter is a large-scale hydrogen project targeting production of 100 tonnes of hydrogen per day, ramping up to 400 tonnes per day mainly for supply to export markets.
It is among four hydrogen manufacturing and distribution hubs Pure Hydrogen plans on the East Coast of Australia, along with Project Mars (Mackay), Liberty North (Newcastle) and Liberty South (South East Victoria).
