The green hydrogen produced at this plant will be converted into ammonia at Yara’s production plant in Porsgrunn whilst additionally being supported by a NOK 283m grant from Enova.

This will enable the development of the project and help create demand for hydrogen and ammonia within Norway.

Yara unveils green ammonia project to enable the hydrogen economy

Using proton exchange membrane (PEM) water electrolysis system with this to be the second 24MW plant designed and constructed by Linde and will produce around 10,000kg/day of hydrogen.

Because this, the project will contribute significantly to the Norwegian hydrogen economy.

The electricity will be delivered from renewable energy sources and will provide enough hydrogen to produce 20,500 tonnes of ammonia per year which can be converted to between 60,000 and 80,000 tonnes of green fertiliser.

The project will also be Yara’s first step towards decarbonisation of the ammonia industry.

Magnus Ankarstrand, President of Yara Clean Ammonia, said, “The project aims to supply the first green ammonia products to the market as early as mid-2023, both as fossil-free fertilisers, as well as emissions-free shipping fuel.

“Green ammonia is the key to reducing emissions from world food production and long-distance shipping. With this project, we move from intention to actions together with Linde Engineering and local contractors.”

John van der Velden, Senior Vice-President of Global Sales & Technology at Linde Engineering, said, “This project showcases Linde Engineering’s market leadership in electrolysis projects.

“Given the growing demand from the fertiliser industry for green hydrogen, this plant is a step towards further upscaling and increasing the size of these projects worldwide.”

Making hydrogen happen

This March, H2 View will explore A Climate for Action and Investment in Europe in an immersive virtual event that features some of the leading stakeholders and influencers in hydrogen, including a Women in Green Hydrogen panel.

Confirmed speakers include the Hydrogen Europe, Clean Hydrogen Partnership, FiveT Hydrogen, Airbus, Nel, BMW, Michelin and more.
