How is Norway Strengthening its Hydrogen Production Efforts?
Nel ASA and Europe’s largest supplier of renewable power, Statkraft ASA have signed a contract for the delivery of 40 MW electrolysers. Hydrogen Industry Leaders highlights how this collaboration will help to create a strong value chain to produce green hydrogen in Norway.
The announcement was made in connection with German Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck’s recent visit to Nel’s fully automated electrolyser manufacturing factory.
It will see the electrolyser stacks being produced at Nel’s manufacturing plant at Herøya and used to produce renewable hydrogen in one of Statkraft’s many hydrogen projects.
Worth NOK 120 million, the contract will also include a front-end engineering and design study related to the deliveries and includes pass-through mechanisms for steel and nickel price adjustments. The production of electrodes is estimated to be completed by the end of 2023.
This project will help Statkraft to strengthen its efforts in developing new renewable power production as well as flexibility within hydropower and wind power both on and offshore in Norway.
