Norwegian Hydrogen AS has unveiled its ambitious plans in Finland, announcing a significant green hydrogen project in Tornio. Tornio has been earmarked as one of Norwegian Hydrogen’s key locations for green hydrogen production in Finland, with a designated 20-hectare area in the Arctic North industrial zone already secured for the venture.

The decision to develop the Tornio production facility underscores Norwegian Hydrogen’s commitment to spearheading the hydrogen economy across the Nordic countries. With increasing demand for hydrogen in various industries and transportation sectors, the region presents a compelling investment opportunity.

In 2023, Norwegian Hydrogen established Vireon, its wholly owned subsidiary, as a leading provider of hydrogen refuelling for heavy-duty transport in the Nordic region. While Vireon’s plans in Finland have been public knowledge, Norwegian Hydrogen’s involvement in green hydrogen production and derivatives has remained undisclosed until now.

Simen Skaare Eriksen, chief commercial officer of Norwegian Hydrogen, emphasised the significance of the Finnish venture, highlighting the company’s dedication to fostering sustainability and economic prosperity throughout the Nordic region.

Local officials and business leaders have warmly welcomed Norwegian Hydrogen’s expansion into Tornio. The city of Tornio and Business Tornio have played pivotal roles in facilitating the venture, acknowledging the project as a testament to the region’s potential in the hydrogen economy.

Petri Luoma, project director of Norwegian Hydrogen Finland Oy, expressed his enthusiasm for Tornio as the project’s ideal location. He cited Tornio’s industrial landscape, coupled with its robust transport and energy infrastructure, as key factors aligning with Norwegian Hydrogen’s goals for hydrogen production.
