The Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain (HESC) is a world-first pilot project to safely and efficiently produce and transport clean hydrogen from Victoria’s Latrobe Valley to Japan.
The project could potentially bring billions of dollars of international investment to Victoria and Australia, create a significant number of jobs across pilot and commercial phase construction and operations and position Australia as a global leader in the supply of clean hydrogen energy.
