Pure Hydrogen leases Queensland site for hydrogen micro-hub

Pure Hydrogen’s first micro-hub will be located just out of Brisbane, close to trucking companies to allow for ease of refuelling

Australian clean energy company Pure Hydrogen has announced it has signed a lease on a 4,000 sqm commercial site at Queensland’s Archerfield Airport to establish its first demonstration hydrogen micro-hub.

The site, located approximately 11 kilometres from the Brisbane CBD, is being secured for the production and supply of green hydrogen to vehicle and aviation customers.

The site is the company’s first step in developing a number of micro-hubs that produce green hydrogen using green electricity sourced from the grid, with Pure Hydrogen already placing an order for a state-of-the-art electrolyser that will be combined with compression and storage facilities to manufacture and sell green hydrogen.

While the location of these future micro-hubs are yet to be determined regarding their proximity to commercial vehicle customer depots, the Archerfield site was selected due to Pure Hydrogen’s intention to supply green hydrogen to commercial drone and vehicle companies at the airport while remaining near major trucking and waste depots.

Pure Hydrogen is now undertaking a staged development of the Archerfield site with stage one, located on 1,000 sqm of the land, being capable of producing roughly 420 kg of green hydrogen per day.

As demand grows, Pure Hydrogen expects to scale up the operations with extra electrolysers as the brand aims for the hub to be operational in the final quarter of this year.

“As we communicated in late 2023, Pure Hydrogen is committed to developing a number of low cost micro-hubs to produce green hydrogen for the commercial transport sector, with Archerfield marking the first step in this regard,” Pure Hydrogen managing director Scott Brown says.

“As well as securing strategic sites, Pure Hydrogen can readily source proven and turn-key hydrogen fuel manufacturing equipment and technology that can be deployed across multiple sites and easily connected to green electricity sources.

“Archerfield will be our demonstration hydrogen micro-hub and the template for planned future plants, with the first electrolyser on order. We plan to use the micro-hubs that are close to customers to assist in creating a hydrogen highway as a domestic source of clean hydrogen fuel.

“Our immediate focus now turns to advancing site works so that the first green hydrogen fuel can be supplied late in 2024.”
