Having received funds from the Swedish Energy Agency, Nilsson is expected to install the refuelling station at the entrance of the Gothenburg RoRo (roll-on, roll-off) Terminal, at Port 6, which is anticipated to be completed in September 2023.

H2 View understands the Swedish renewable energy system supplier will also contribute to the construction of a green hydrogen tank, in cooperation with the Port of Gothenburg and other stakeholders.

Pontus Lundgren, CEO of Nilsson Energy, said, “Building a hydrogen filling station in such a central junction for heavy vehicles and for the automotive industry, as well as Scandinavia’s largest port and the gateway to the world for large parts of Swedish industry, is very motivating.”

Viktor Allgurén, Head of Innovation at the Gothenburg Port Authority, added, “It’s a much-requested addition to the port, one that’s also fully in line with our strategy to create conditions for accelerating the transport industry’s transition to fossil-free.”

In 2021, the Gotherburg Port Authority and Stratkraft revealed they aimed to construct a new hydrogen production facility at the port which would be capable of producing two tonnes of hydrogen per day by 2023.
