Sydney-based Amtronics today (Tues 16th June, 2020) announced a new division – Australian Hydrogen Generation – which will provide a boost to the country’s fledgling hydrogen industry.
Australia’s Chief Scientist, Dr Alan Finkel, has hailed green hydrogen as ‘shipping sunshine’ and this new division will provide all equipment from generation and purification to compression, storage, installation and maintenance.
Discussions are being held around the need for major hydrogen generation investment in Australia and New Zealand. Leveraging off Australia’s position to exploit a niche in the market, Amtronics are moving forward to start building bigger H2 generating plants for Australian companies as a green solution.
Australia’s Federal Energy Minister, Angus Taylor, has said the Green Hydrogen industry will be a $10 billion per year market within the next 20-30 years. Japan and Korea are already poised to unleash more than one million hydrogen cars in 2021, requiring vast amounts of Green Hydrogen.
Sebastian Ruis is the owner and chief engineer of Amtronics. He explained that the company is head and shoulders above their competitors, with unrivaled experience and success with producing hydrogen on an industrial scale in Australia.
“Since 2013, our plants have produced nitrogen and hydrogen on an industrial scale,” he said. “This complex combination has given us crucial on-site experience in
demanding difficult 24/7 supply. These plants are critical infrastructure to keeping our core business of laser cutting factories running.
