Norwegian Hydrogen unveils expansion into Finland with a new hydrogen production plant in Tornio
03.26.2024 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

March 26, 2024 [STT Info]- Tornio has been selected as one of Norwegian Hydrogen’s locations for the production of green hydrogen in Finland, and a 20-hectare area in the Arctic North industrial area has already been reserved for the company. This decision is based on the infrastructural advantages it offers to support the efficient production and distribution of hydrogen, making it an ideal location.

 

In 2023, Norwegian Hydrogen established its wholly owned subsidiary, Vireon, as the leading provider of hydrogen refueling for heavy-duty transport in the Nordic region. Vireon is actively engaged in developing and constructing hydrogen fueling infrastructure, first of all throughout the Nordic region. While Vireon’s plans in Finland have already been known for some time, Norwegian Hydrogen’s activities related to the production of green hydrogen and green hydrogen derivatives have not been announced until now.

“Their venture in Finland is very important for Norwegian Hydrogen, marking our commitment to contribute to the development of a sustainable society and economic vitality in the entire Nordic region,” says Simen Skaare Eriksen , Chief Commercial Officer of Norwegian Hydrogen.

The expansion has been warmly received by local officials and business leaders. The city of Tornio and Business Tornio have been instrumental in facilitating this venture.

“Norwegian Hydrogen’s plan summarizes very well the long-term work done in the development of Arctic North and highlights the region’s potential for the hydrogen economy. They are very pleased that Tornio has been chosen as a key part of Norwegian Hydrogen’s plan towards a sustainable future”, says Hannaleena Posti , Deputy CEO of Business Tornio.

Petri Luoma , Project Director of Norwegian Hydrogen Finland Oy, shared his enthusiasm for Tornio as the ideal location for this ambitious project. “Tornio emerged as a natural choice, aligning perfectly with our goals. The city’s industrial landscape, coupled with its transport and energy infrastructure, presents an optimal setting for hydrogen production.”
