The project received a grant from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) as part of ARENA's Advancing Renewables Program and the Victorian Government also contributed to the project via the Renewable Hydrogen Commercialization Pathways Fund.

The contract is worth approximately €4 million and the hydrogen plant system is scheduled for delivery in the third quarter of 2022.
