Stockholm-based digital reality solutions provider Hexagon AB has joined forces with Australian hydrogen infrastructure developer The Hydrogen Utility (H2U).

Hexagon’s solutions will be implemented across H2U’s planned pipeline of industrial green hydrogen infrastructure initiatives in Australia and New Zealand.

Hexagon’s PPM division will support H2U with an integrated digital twin platform, which will manage every stage of the asset lifecycle – from engineering and design through to finance, construction and operation – to improve efficiency and reduce risk.

According to Hexagon, the ability to create digital twins, aligned to emerging global standards for information management, is critical to supporting the rapid deployment scenarios required for green hydrogen to deliver deep decarbonisation in the industrial and energy sectors.

The pipeline includes first of their kind projects already underway in Australia – the Eyre Peninsula Gateway project in South Australia and the H2-Hub Gladstone project in Queensland.

 Ola Rollén, Hexagon President and CEO, said: “We’re proud to partner with H2U to create meaningful impact in the world’s energy transformation with the move to cost-effective green hydrogen production.

“Our solutions will provide a common environment to manage seamless and effective collaboration across H2U’s technology partner ecosystem.”
