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).

Today’s arrival of the world’s first liquefied hydrogen carrier, the Suiso Frontier, in Victoria marks the success of the Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain (HESC) Pilot Project and the dawn of Australia’s hydrogen industry. HESC Project Representatives HESC’s vision is to produce carbon neutral hydrogen through extraction from a mix of Latrobe Valley coal and biomass,…
Readers may be surprised to learn that one of the world’s largest CCS research projects has been safely and successfully operating in Victoria for the past 15 years.
