Grid Capacity for Green Hydrogen Projects in Norway Secured
Aker Horizons has applied for and been allocated grid capacity of 250 MW and 120 MW for its large-scale green ammonia plants in Norway. How will this boost hydrogen production in the country?
The grid capacity in Kvandal was allocated through Nordkraft Industrinett AS. This allocation ensures that the Narvik Green Ammonia project, being developed in partnership with Statkraft, has a sufficient grid for the daily production of up to 1,000 tones of green ammonia.
It is aiming to see the project reach a final investment decision in 2025, with a target of starting commercial operations in 2028.
Kristoffer Dahlberg, Chief Financial Officer in Aker Horizons Asset Development explained that this project will be essential to amplifying green energy: “We are pleased to have been allocated the grid capacity for our Narvik Green Ammonia project from Statnett.
“This award adds a key component in realizing the project, strengthening the opportunity to establish Kvandal and Narvik as a hub for new green industry in the region.”
The grid capacity in Berlevåg was awarded through Barents Nett AS. The 120 MW will be available when the new 420kv-line to Seidafjellet is completed and is a critical step towards realising large-scale green ammonia production in Berlevåg.
