LINE Hydrogen and Bonney Energy team up to deliver hydrogen infrastructure for heavy vehicles

LINE Hydrogen and Bonney Energy will work together to develop opportunities to roll out hydrogen refuelling infrastructure utilising the existing Bonney Energy network of service and refueling stations in Tasmania.

Australian owned and operated, Bonney Energy operates an extensive network of service stations, on-site refueling services, fuel storage solutions through Tasmania and Victoria. Queensland based LINE Hydrogen seeks to simplify hydrogen and its production processes, and focus on closing the loop between the producers and the end‑users.

The two companies are working in collaboration to make a green hydrogen-powered, climate-friendly supply chain a reality following an agreement that is the first of its kind announced in Australia.

Under the MOU, the Parties will also identify and progress options for distribution of hydrogen from LINE Hydrogen’s initial production plant at George Town in Tasmania, throughout the proposed network including direct delivering to any off-takers and will also investigate the most appropriate methods of storage and distribution of hydrogen.

The new partnership comes on the heels of the 2022 Federal budget, which saw the Federal Government commit $5.5M to LINE as part of their Tasmanian funding initiatives. Confirming a hydrogen-powered future for Australia and creating hundreds of new job opportunities, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese explained “hydrogen has enormous potential, and over time LINE could build at least five hydrogen refuelling stations in Tasmania, creating jobs right across the state.”

It is expected that the project will be launched alongside LINE Hydrogen beginning production out of the Bell Bay Solar Farm in Tasmania in early 2023. LINE is calling on businesses to advise on their hydrogen based needs to inform the development of the George Town project, one of Australia’s first, and largest, commercial scale green hydrogen production facilities.
