The production plant will greatly enhance Sweden’s capabilities in the hydrogen sector and additionally present opportunities for local companies to decarbonise.

With development of the plant set to begin, it is hoped that this will be operational by 2024 at the latest with the possibility to expand the facility to a larger scale in 2026 and 2027.

Peter Lundström, CEO at Permascand, said, “It is a very positive and interesting start that we jointly can contribute to a development project of this kind.

“It is in line with Permascand’s growth plan and the construction of a full-scale technology centre to develop new technology for green hydrogen on the market, which is part of our quest for increased sustainability globally. The fact that the project also has a local connection makes it even more interesting.”

Matilda Afzelius, CEO at RES, comments: “This project is extremely important. We are at the forefront here and are contributing to a rapid transition to renewable energy.

“With this collaboration, we have the opportunity to do both local and global benefits. A sustainable future will benefit from more cross-border and innovative developments and collaborations like this.”

Sigrid Nord, development project manager at RES, said, “We are very excited with this collaboration opportunity together with Permascand in our work to make it possible to take the testing into a production plant to enable competitive green hydrogen.

We also see that this type of green energy system will be crucial in enabling the energy transition in the industry and that collaborations like these mean great benefits to succeed.”
