About this Module
Join us for the 12th Module of the H2 World web series and hear ENGIE’s Senior Business Development Manager, Sean McGuire, present on the Hydrogen Park Murray Valley Project, Albury. Sean McGuire provides an overview of the project from its inception in 2019 as a feasibility study, to how it fits in into the larger picture of Australia’s targets for long-term hydrogen development and figures. Decisions on the project’s location with regard to the impacts on the success of the project and its surrounding stakeholders will be explored. How these supported the provision of advantages for reach to residential, commercial, and industrial clients, the opportunities for leveraging synergies with surrounding industries and organisations, and the economic benefits intertwining with sustainability aspects aiding in the success of the project. Sean McGuire will also discuss the role of stakeholders, including primary partner Australian Gas Infrastructure Group, with specific regard to the importance of early engagement with stakeholders that was undertaken and created relationships that fostered a supportive environment for the delivery of the project.
Senior Business Development Manager
Sean is Senior Business Development Manager for ENGIE’s renewable hydrogen projects. He has worked as a part of the ENGIE teams for the past 18 years covering a range of sectors from combined cycle gas turbine power plant, cogeneration and district heating to renewables (large scale ground mounted PV and onshore wind) and more recently focussing on renewable hydrogen production.
He is in his current role since 2019 where he has worked on different projects involving large scale storage of hydrogen in salt caverns, on site production of hydrogen harnessing run-of-river hydroelectric production, large-scale renewable hydrogen solutions for the mining sector and H2 blending for gas networks.
Together with its partner AGIG, ENGIE is finalizing the development of the Hydrogen Park Murray Valley renewable hydrogen production and blending project in Wodonga, VIC. Sean is heading up ENGIE’s development efforts on this exciting project.
Originally from the UK, his career until now has been largely spent in France, Italy and Turkey with an international experience in business development. He is now based in Melbourne and holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Imperial College of Science, Technology & Medicine, London.
