Plans for a brand-new hydrogen production and export facility have today (September 6) been unveiled for Mosjøen, Norway.
Gen2 Energy is behind the project, and it wants to start producing hydrogen in 2024.
Having inked an agreement with the Norwegian municipality of Vefsn for the effort, Gen2 Energy will gain access to two plots of land where the hydrogen developments will come to life.
The company said it plans for works to start immediately, and once operational, the produced hydrogen will be transported to relevant markets in Europe.
On the plans, Jonas Meyer, General Manager of Gen2 Energy, said, “We are very pleased to have chosen Mosjøen as the location for large-scale production of green hydrogen.
“Mosjøen has a good mix of cheap renewable energy, relevant labour from the process industry and good shipping opportunities.”
Berit Hundåla, Mayor of Vefsn municipality, added, “This is a great opportunity for us. Vefsn has a significant industrial history behind it with aluminium production being the most extensive with a large number of associated supplier companies.
“The fact that there are now great opportunities for establishment within green industry, which the hydrogen producer Gen2 Energy represents, means that the industrial community Vefsn has even more legs to stand on.
“This means new future-oriented jobs and a basis for a strengthened population base, the mayor emphasises.”
