2020 Australian Engineering Excellence Award Winner
Valmec, along with our engineering partner GPA Engineering, and valued client Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG), are proud to be a 2020 Australian Engineering Excellence Award winner for the HyP SA Hydrogen Production and Injection Facility in South Australia.
The 2020 Australian Engineering Excellence Awards presented by Engineers Australia, represent outstanding achievement in engineering, and the invaluable contribution engineering makes to the economy, community, and the environment.
Valmec wishes to congratulate our partners on the collaborative effort for this innovative project.
The scope of the project included design and construction, major procurement, civil works, SMPE&I, pre-commissioning, and commissioning works.
The facility includes hydrogen storage and equipment, including a 1.25 MW Siemens electrolyser for blending hydrogen with natural gas, which will enable the injection of hydrogen into the gas network.
With the facility operational in the near future, AGIG will be set to produce renewable hydrogen, for blending with natural gas, and supply to nearby properties via the existing gas network as part of a five-year (minimum) demonstration.
