Unveiled on Monday (May 23), the companies have signed an exclusive collaboration agreement to supply electrolysers in Australia and New Zealand to produce green hydrogen.

As part of this collaboration, HIFraser will locally assemble the balance-of-plant of Elogen’s state-of the-art electrolysers and will adapt them to Australian standards and the requirements of customers in the region.

HIFraser is expected to also accompany the customers with maintenance support after delivery of the electrolysis units.

This new collaboration will help to expand the company’s presence in Australia and New Zealand whilst also situate the companies at the forefront of the hydrogen revolution.

Jean-Baptiste Choimet, Managing Director of Elogen, commented, “With this new partnership, Elogen will enter the Australian market. With a strong potential for affordable solar energy supply, Australia is well positioned to become a world leader in the production of green hydrogen.

“HIFraser Group is the ideal partner to supply Elogen’s state-of-the-art technologies to hydrogen producers in Australia and New Zealand. This partnership will enable to offer attractive and localised solutions in Australia, thanks to HIFraser engineering and assembly know-how.”

Jodie Draper, Managing Director of HIFraser Group, said, “We are proud of this partnership with Elogen, which will supply a proven European technology in Australia and New Zealand.

“The applications for green hydrogen production are many and varied and our local technical and engineering expertise will allow us to “Australianise” the design of Elogen electrolysers to meet each customer’s needs and provide them with ongoing local support.”

North American Hydrogen Summit

H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.

As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.

With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?

Our early bird offer tickets are $1,000, for a limited time only. If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
