Gladstone will soon be home to one of the world’s largest hydrogen equipment manufacturing facilities, thanks to the Queensland Government’s partnership with leading renewable energy and hydrogen company Fortescue Future Industries.
More than 300 local jobs are expected to be created over the life of the project.
With production expected to commence in 2023, the new facility in Aldoga will manufacture electrolysers which are vital to the production of renewable hydrogen.
Its proximity to the heart of Gladstone means the facility will put Central Queensland on the map as a world leader in the renewable hydrogen supply chain, boosting the state’s potential as a renewables equipment exporter in this rapidly growing industry.
Funding from the Invested in Queensland program is supporting this project, as part of wider Queensland Government support.
