About the Presentation
In the last few years, global interest in hydrogen has risen dramatically. This webinar will start with an introduction to the global hydrogen movement especially in Australia and Japan and will also cover the excellent relationship between the two nations in the hydrogen sector. Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. (KHI) and other project partners are undertaking the Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain (HESC) project, which produces hydrogen from Victorian coal in the Latrobe Valley. This hydrogen will be converted to liquefied hydrogen in a hydrogen liquefier and then transported to Japan by a special liquefied hydrogen carrier ship. The HESC project is separated into 2 phases, a pilot and commercial phase. Currently a pilot phase, which is a small-scale technical demonstration, is being undertaken with support from the Australian and Japanese governments. The operation of the pilot project will start soon and will continue until mid-next year. The commercial phase, which aims to produce and transport liquefied hydrogen on a large scale, will commence in the 2030s depending on the result of the pilot phase. The success of the pilot project and the future commercial scale projects will enable Australia to be a leading country in hydrogen exports and will also boost domestic hydrogen use in Australia.
The presentation will also cover other technical development related with hydrogen which KHI is currently undertaking in Japan.
