Having today (Feb 23) confirmed the conclusion of a study focused on its hydrogen potential, the region stated that hydrogen production efforts would benefit a number of existing projects and industries.

Already, Raahe is home to the SSAB steel plant that wants to convert to completely emissions-free production by 2030 with the implementation of hydrogen technologies, which could benefit from its clean energy carrier plans.

Further to this, preliminary studies are already taking place for the construction of a hydrogen gas pipeline in the northern Baltic Sea, running from Raahe to Leleå, Sweden, and then to Skellefteå.

Pasi Pitkänen, Director of Raahe Region Development, said, “Our study has identified three suitable locations om Raahe where we can build facilities for both industrial production and storage of hydrogen.

“Our aim is to build a large-scale hydrogen industry in our area and, if necessary, also sell emission-free hydrogen produced in Raahe to Sweden, Germany and other parts of the world.”

Building Bridges: Hydrogen Hubs and Investment

This July, H2 View will hold its first-ever in-person event in the sunshine state of California.

Hosted in partnership with the California Fuel Cell Partnership, the event will explore the nation’s plans for at least four hydrogen hubs as well as take an in-depth look at the international investment California and the wider US are seeing.

Confirmed speakers already include the Clean Hydrogen Future Coalition, the Texas Hydrogen Alliance and Plug Power. We are will soon be adding to our jam-packed agenda, so keep your eyes peeled!
