The first green hydrogen production and refuelling facility in New Zealand will be built by Ports of Auckland with expert support from Arup.
Planned to be operating in Autumn 2020, the ground-breaking project is a partnership between Ports of Auckland, Auckland Council, Auckland Transport, Kiwi Rail and Arup.
The facility for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, including port equipment, buses and cars, will be at the Waitematā port.
Arup is partnering to support the project through the development, design and delivery phases.
“Arup has seamlessly drawn together our global hydrogen experience with our local capability, knowledge and relationships to deliver pragmatic, solution focussed advice to POAL as they lead the hydrogen charge in New Zealand,” said Alan Thomson, Arup’s Global Leader of Energy Systems.
