Historic former milk factory in Port Adelaide on target to become Australia’s ‘greenest’ building

hanks to innovative fuel cell technology, a former milk factory in historic Port Adelaide is aiming to become the nation’s greenest commercial office building.

Developed by boutique property development group Acdev, the St Vincent Street property – built in 1921 – has been converted into a premium quality office building featuring five ‘BlueGen’ ceramic fuel cell units, which convert natural gas to electricity and heat. It is the single largest commercial fuel cell installation in Australia.

Combined with a 22kW, 90-panel photovoltaic solar cell installation, the two storey, 1,100 square metre property has been designed to be carbon negative, with the solar power system generating enough energy to more than offset emissions from the natural gas used to operate the fuel cells. The predicted operational greenhouse gas emissions savings associated with this project is 55 tonnes of CO2 emitted per annum – the equivalent of taking 50 cars off the road for a year.
