The CEO of the Bell Bay Advanced Manufacturing Zone (BBAMZ), Susie Bower, announced that funding for the Bell Bay Hydrogen Cluster Manager’s role has been extended by the Tasmanian Government.
“The Bell Bay Hydrogen Cluster is an important foundation for a future hydrogen industry at Bell Bay and BBAMZ strongly welcomes Minister Barnett’s recent announcement of extended funding to support this program,” said Ms Bower.
“The Bell Bay Hydrogen Cluster will ensure that local businesses already engaged in advanced manufacturing and those seeking to extend their capability will be fully involved with all opportunities as they arise.
“BBAMZ was pleased to see the announcement of the Tasmanian Green Hydrogen Hub at Bell Bay in May 2022 and this funding will enable the significant work of the Bell Bay Cluster to continue as the Bell Bay Hub commences expected development in coming months.”
“As a result, the Bell Bay Hydrogen Cluster will continue in developing an industry capability and workforce plan for the Tasmanian Green Hydrogen Hub. This will highlight opportunities for the local business community which leverages the hydrogen supply chain map prepared in 2021.”
“BBAMZ has an important role in the development of industry capability in the emerging Tasmanian green hydrogen industry through its close and long-standing connection to industry, and this extension of funding allows us to continue this critical work.” Said Ms Bower.
