‘Superhybrid’ Projects Support Hydrogen Production in Australia
An Australia-based company is designing a project that combines multiple power generation technologies into a system that not only creates electricity but also can result in production of hydrogen. Sunshine Hydro recently announced plans for its first Superhybrid installation, in Central Queensland (CQ), a project it calls the Flavian Superhybrid. The company’s system, according to Sunshine Hydro, “combines multiple technologies that are not normally connected. (To read full article, click heading link).

PV Magazine: Sumitomo, Rio Tinto to build green hydrogen project in Australia
By David Carroll
The Sumitomo pilot project is among a suite of green hydrogen projects planned for the Gladstone area, including a massive “super-hybrid” project unveiled this week by Queensland developer Sunshine Hydro and Energy Estate.
Valued at up to AUD 5.5 billion ($3.9 billion), the Flavian project would incorporate 1.8 GW of wind generation and 600 MW of pumped hydro with 18 hours of storage. The project would also include 300 MW of hydrogen electrolyzers, 50 MW of liquefaction, and a 50 MW hydrogen fuel cell.
Sunshine Hydro Chair Michael Myer said once fully operational the Flavian superhybrid project will provide 65 tons per day of competitively priced green hydrogen for transport and local industry, as well as 220 MW of green energy being supplied 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
“We will apply our innovative closed loop hydropower model, which selects of a clever mix of energy inputs, outputs, and storage, which we call a superhybrid, to generate reliable green power and green hydrogen,” he said. “The combination of the long-duration pumped hydro combined with the fast-acting response of PEM (polymer electrolyte membrane) electrolysers can provide grid services second to none.”
