MISSION STATEMENT AND COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

OUR MISSION

Port Anthony Renewables Limited (PAR) is an Australian company operated by the Anthony family, who have owned the Port for over 20 years.

We are committed to establishing ourselves as the largest green energy hub in Southeastern Australia.

We benefit from a unique asset portfolio and strategic location, allowing us to take advantage of the burgeoning Australian hydrogen sector estimated to be worth $56 billion by 2050.

We are strategically and geographically situated to take advantage of this emerging energy market. Our infrastructure produces hydrogen and oxygen while also generating revenue through Joint Ventures with other producers such as Infinite Blue Energy.

Over the next five years, we are poised to handle over $632 million worth of cargo and produce over 112,000 tonnes of hydrogen.

OUR COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

REVENUE MODELS

We stand to generate revenue from our own production of hydrogen and oxygen, along with Joint Venture agreements with major hydrogen producers.

ACCESS

Our strategic location and control of the Port give us access to domestic and foreign hydrogen export markets.

ACCESS

Our strategic location and control of the Port give us access to domestic and foreign hydrogen export markets.

DOMESTIC BENEFITS

The Port is 196km to the east of Melbourne in Corner Inlet, perfectly positioned to fuel the domestic hydrogen market.

EXPORT HUB

Having operated commercially since 1966, the facility's geographic advantage provides ocean access through channels, allowing us to export hydrogen directly to worldwide markets via our own infrastructure.

FOCUS

Purpose-built with an industrial focus — as an open shipping terminal — catering to general and project freights as well as bulk commodities.

EXISTING INFRASTRUCTURE

  • Berth # 1 (multi-purpose usage), i.e. dry bulk, project, unit and general cargo.
  • Land-backed steel sheet piled 200m wharf with crane pad and topped wharf apron.
  • Extensive laydown, receival and handling areas directly adjoining the landward side of the wharf.
  • Large hardstand storage area, approx. 10,000m2.
  • Warehousing and undercover storage available, approx. 2,500m2.

FAMILY OWNERSHIP

The Port Anthony facility is a 100% family-owned company overseen by Ben Anthony. The Anthony family are majority investors in PAR, leveraging their assets to help Australian businesses realise the full potential of the country’s quickly evolving hydrogen industry. The exclusive access and control afforded to PAR by the Anthony family is further supplemented by three legacy assets to assist with accelerating expansion.

INVALUABLE POSITIONING

A fully operational Port has unlocked a global export market for the Anthony family’s associates. They are also 78 kilometres from the Gippsland Basin pipeline network, which supplies 50% of Australia’s natural gas — creating unrivalled conditions for the domestic sale of hydrogen.

EXPANSIVE GROUNDS

The family owns 600 acres of surrounding land which can facilitate expanded hydrogen production for both domestic and international markets. With 70% already zoned for mixed-industrial use, their sole ownership of this land provides an enviable environment, allowing partners to rapidly expand production operations unimpeded.

SOCIAL LICENSE

For 55 years, the family has been the cornerstone of the Gippsland region's resource based economy. The Anthony's deep connection with the local community creates commercial opportunities for their partners — helping them bypass years of development challenges.

THE FUEL OF THE FUTURE

Port Anthony Renewables will produce Hydrogen predominately from electrolysis, with the energy being drawn from surrounding renewable energy projects. (Wind and Solar) Additionally, as a transitional and enabling technology pathway, the Hub will also produce Hydrogen from a combination of biomass gasification and pyrolysis.

To further enhance this process, The feedstock for the process will be ONLY be derived from waste timber diverted from landfill, (not from forestry) otherwise known as “Post-Consumer” product. Collected from transfer stations, this hydrogen production method is actually a carbon negative process, withdrawing CO2 from the atmosphere and storing it in the ground as a solid bio char.
