These hydrogen parks are no playgrounds, but rather create hydrogen to blend with natural gas to produce an even cleaner fuel for homes and factories. The first project is Hydrogen Park South Australia (HyP SA), located at the Tonsley Innovation District. Its establishment was supported with an A$4.9 million grant from the state Government of South Australia to promote research and testing in hydrogen supply. The official opening on 19 May 2021 hosted the Premier of South Australia, The Hon Steven Marshall and the South Australian Minister for Energy and Mining, The Hon Dan van Holst Pellekaan, showcasing the state- and national-level importance of the project.
HyP SA is supplied with renewable energy from the grid, which is used to create up to 20kg of hydrogen an hour, to be blended into the existing natural gas network and supplying more than 700 homes. Production is adjustable depending on the demand from households and industry, with up to 40kg of storage on-site when supply exceeds demand. Production can be ramped up or down depending on the electricity supply from wind and solar sources as the wind blows or the sun shines. Either way, the whole project vents only oxygen, an entirely benign emission.
AGIG’s leadership is recognised through research partnerships across the country. The Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline is also the recipient of a grant from the state Government of Western Australia for a feasibility study on blending hydrogen into the pipeline for use by industry in Perth and other major communities.

Collaboration with other world leaders complements the cooperation with Australian government agencies. Executives and engineers from AGIG share experiences with, for example, Northern Gas Networks, a leader in the hydrogen economy of the UK – and a CKI member company. While Australians are feeling some of the hardest blows of an unpredictable climate, they know they are not alone. AGIG is their ally, exploring how the whole nation can do its part and encouraging people to just believe the HyP.
Hydrogen Park South Australia isn’t the only one of its kind, but rather the prototype from which more will follow.

Designing 21st-century ports requires that operators cater to the demands posed by increasingly enormous container ships. Use of autonomous vehicles and AI cranes and vehicles drives efficiency. The complex dance of goods and containers at a modern port only happens when designers set the stage for success.
Power plant design demands that everyone — from staff and neighbours to dolphins and birds — is kept safe. HK Electric and Canadian Power may be an ocean apart, but both have ingenious design elements and technology that enable them to take on explosive fuels and turn them into a safe stream of electricity, powering people’s lives and entire economies.
