Fortescue Future Industries and Firstgas to investigate green hydrogen

Fortescue Future Industries (FFI) and Firstgas Group (Firstgas) have embarked on a new collaboration to investigate developing green hydrogen projects, with the aim of continuing to decarbonise New Zealand’s energy system, and to help improve energy security.

FFI and Firstgas have signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding to identify opportunities to produce and distribute green hydrogen to tens of thousands of homes and businesses in New Zealand.

FFI Director of Australia East and New Zealand, Felicity Underhill said, “Partnering with companies like Firstgas enables us to combine FFI’s global experience and expertise in green hydrogen, with strong local knowledge and existing infrastructure. We’re particularly inspired by the strong alignment of purpose between FFI and Firstgas to help decarbonise New Zealand.

Paul Goodeve, Firstgas Group Chief Executive said, “Working with Fortescue marks an important step in Firstgas’ development and scale-up of renewable fuels and we are excited about the opportunities this relationship presents.

“Integrating green hydrogen into NZ’s current energy mix gives our country the best available balance of energy security, energy equity, system resilience and environmental sustainability,” added Goodeve.
