P2X Solutions has laid the foundation stone of the renewable green hydrogen and synthetic methane production plant in Harjavalta – the first industrial-scale green hydrogen plant to progress to the construction stage in Finland.
Minister of Economic Affairs Mika Lintilä and Chairman of P2X Solutions’ Board Esa Härmälä attended the ceremony among other guests.
Lintilä said, “The actual construction of hydrogen projects commencing in Satakunta today is part of the positive change that is taking place in the energy industry but has been overshadowed by the energy crisis so far. However, that is why the green transition is being accelerated by energy self-sufficiency in addition to environmental reasons. We must also remember that there is market demand for example for green steel, in the production of which hydrogen plays an important role. Additionally, hydrogen is crucial for the heavy transport sector.”
Esa Härmälä, Chairman of the Board of P2X Solutions, said, “Today, we are making history in Finnish industry in Harjavalta. Once completed in 2024, P2X Solutions’ plant will open the market for Finnish green hydrogen. We believe that the Harjavalta plant is only the first development step in taking Finland to the top of the European hydrogen economy.”
