Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain (HESC)

The Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain (HESC) project is a pilot project designed to produce and transport clean hydrogen from Victoria’s Latrobe Valley to Japan, safely and efficiently.

CTRC is collaborating with the project’s major partner, Australian Carbon Innovation. International industry partners include Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI), J-POWER, Iwatani Corporation, Marubeni Corporation, Shell and AGL.


As part of the BioPathways Partnership, funded by the State Government Workforce Training Innovation Fund, we are contributing to Gippsland’s need for biomanufacturing training in the future.

The partnership, which includes Opal Australian Paper, Federation Training and Federation University, aims to develop accredited biomanufacturing training to support a Gippsland bioeconomy and future opportunities for Opal Australian Paper.


We have a strong collaboration with the CSIRO Energy Low Emissions Technology group. Through this collaboration, we have also worked with the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO).

Our partnership with the CSIRO provides them with access to specialised analytical skills, research students and well-equipped and licensed laboratories. FedUni also benefits from its connection with CSIRO by having access to their cutting-edge lab research, pilot technology, development expertise, and industry and international collaboration.
