The world-first Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain (HESC) Project
Urgent Emissions Reductions
In a commercial phase, HESC will reduce global CO2 emissions by 1.8 million tonnes per year, the equivalent of taking 350,000 cars off the road.
An Advanced Hydrogen Project
HESC is Australia’s most advanced hydrogen project; and the first project in the world to make, liquefy and transport liquid hydrogen by sea to an international market.
In a commercial phase, HESC could create 30,000 jobs in the Latrobe Valley and Mornington Peninsula regions.
The world-first Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain (HESC) Project aims to safely produce and transport clean liquid hydrogen from Australia’s Latrobe Valley in Victoria to Kobe in Japan.
The project has the potential to be a game-changer – providing an innovative, economically viable and environmentally conscious solution to producing clean hydrogen safely, through gasification of coal with carbon capture and storage (CCS).

On May 19, 2022, the Australia Institute released a report critical of the HESC project’s projections on emissions reduction in a commercial phase. The Australia Institute report’s findings were based on the false hypothesis that the HESC project would proceed into a commercial phase without carbon capture and storage (CCS). The HESC Project Partners, the…
On 25 January 2022, while the Suiso Frontier was moored at the port of Hastings, one of the two solenoid valve systems (device for transmitting instructions to the damper) in the gas combustion unit (GCU) suddenly stopped, and a ship crew observed lighting and smoke in the gas combustion unit (GCU) on the vessel for…
