The Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain (HESC) Project welcomed the Hon. Madeleine King MP who visited Kobe, Japan for a closer look at the project.

The Australian Minister for Resources and her delegation were taken on a tour of the Suiso Frontier – the world’s first liquefied hydrogen carrier – by KHI Chairman, Mr. Kanehana.

KHI Chairman, Mr. Kanehana said, “The HESC Project Partners were delighted to welcome Minister King and her delegation to KHI’s factory near the Port of Kobe. The Minister’s visit builds on the successful collaboration between our countries which enabled the HESC Project to become the first in the world to make, liquefy and transport liquid hydrogen by sea.”

During the visit, the Minister learned more about how liquefied hydrogen produced in Victoria is safely stored and transported between Australia and Japan. She was interested in the successful completion of the pilot phase and impressed by the scope of the project and the opportunity it offered for deepening the energy supply relationship between Japan and Australia.
