Fortescue Future Industries
Fortescue Future Industries (FFI) is at the forefront of the renewable hydrogen solution that the world needs now. FFI chose Gladstone, Queensland as the home of their Global Green Energy Manufacturing Centre, the first step towards a series of projects that will transform regional Australia through green industry manufacturing and energy project centres.
The first step in the project will be the establishment of Australia’s first multi-gigawatt-scale electrolyser factory, with an initial capacity of 2 gigawatts per annum- more than doubling current global production of hydrogen. The initial electrolyser investment is expected to be to AUD$14 million, with the first electrolysers scheduled for production in early 2023.
FFI also plans to establish its first Vocational Training and Employment centre in Queensland at GEM investing in the skills required for green manufacturing and employment in regional Australia.
In another big step forward, FFI has reached an agreement with manufacturer Incitec Pivot to study the feasibility of industrial-scale green ammonia production at Gibson Island, in Brisbane.
