Countrywide Hydrogen selects contractors for Tasmanian projects

ReNu Energy’s Countrywide Hydrogen subsidiary has selected contractors and suppliers for its Tasmanian green hydrogen and green energy projects.

The company’s engineering supplier Wood has selected a series of suppliers in preparation for as final investment decision being made on the projects.

Countrywide is developing a number of Tasmanian green hydrogen projects including its Brighton project to supply Hobart customers (pictured) and a hydrogen hub co-located with the Bell Bay aluminium smelter which will produce 4.5 tonnes per day of green hydrogen for domestic use.

Electrolysis will be powered by Tasmania’s renewable energy.

Wood has selected:

  • Plug Power Inc has been selected to supply two FMW PEM electrolysers, each designed to produce 2,100kg/day of green hydrogen
  • Fabrum Solutions has been selected as the supplier a refuelling hub and hydrogen tube trailer storage system
  • And Wasco Australia has been selected as construction contractor.

ReNu Energy Executive Chairman Boyd White said a significant amount of work had been completed in the past six months progressing the technical side of its Tasmanian projects.

White said: “The culmination of that work is the technology and supplier selection and design for our projects.

“We are now at the stage to commence final design and complete the relevant contractual documentation to deliver these projects.”

Countrywide has allowed for 70 hydrogen fuel cell powered trucks to refuel at its two sites.

Connection flanges at Western Junction and Brighton will allow the injection of hydrogen gas into the TasGas network and future supply to local industry.

The projects are on track for first hydrogen supply by mid-2025.
