Australian Industrial Power, a subsidiary of Squadron Energy, is proposing the development of the 635 megawatt Port Kembla Energy Hub which would include a gas and green hydrogen power station, located at the Berth 101 site, adjacent to the Port Kembla Gas Terminal. The project includes a 330 kilovolt transmission line to connect to the NEM at Sydney's Dapto Transmission Line.
The project would be initially built to operate on 50 per cent gas and 50 per cent green hydrogen and generate 435 megawatts, with development pathway to operate on 100 per cent green bydrogen by 2030 with 635 megawatts of generation capacity.
