A new Hydrogen and Renewable Energy Training Facility and Advanced Manufacturing Skills Lab at Bohle TAFE, collectively representing $18.29 million in new investments, have been officially opened by Queensland premier Steven Miles.

According to a joint statement from Miles and three state ministers on Wednesday, the new facilities at the Townsville campus would help meet skill demands as new clean energy, infrastructure, and housing were built in Queensland.

The Hydrogen and Renewable Energy Training Facility includes a mixed reality studio, workshops for hand tools and instrumentation, and electric vehicle training for hydrogen-powered heavy vehicles.

The Advanced Manufacturing Skills Lab will offer training for manufacturing in technologies such as augmented reality, automation, cyber security, and robotics.

“North Queensland is the gateway to more than half a trillion dollars in untapped critical minerals and renewable energy opportunities, so it’s only right that these new facilities are here in Townsville,” said Miles.
