This week, Hydrogen Solutions (HYDS) and Varanger kraft Hydrogen signed an agreement for the delivery of a control system for Varanger kraft's hydrogen production plant in Berlevåg. The agreement means that HYDS will develop a control system, including an option for cooperation on the operation of the plant.
- The cooperation and agreement with Varanger kraft Hydrogen is a step towards offering green hydrogen to consumers in Northern Norway and the northern part of Scandinavia. For HYDS, the northern region is very interesting and the collaboration with Varanger kraft Hydrogen is an excellent opportunity to develop the market for green hydrogen together, says Øyvind Dale, Head of Business Development at HYDS.
Varanger Kraft Hydrogen has been producing green hydrogen since 2020, but from 2024, commercial production of up to 500 bar will be available.
- "With HYDS as the supplier of our control system, we gain a valuable exchange of experience and access to unique expertise in the construction and operation of hydrogen plants," says Jørn Uno Mikkelsen, business developer at Varanger kraft Hydrogen.
Hydrogen Solution (HYDS) was established in 2021 and is a fast-growing Norwegian hydrogen company. HYDS develops, builds, owns and operates hydrogen plants, and its strategy is to produce green hydrogen and hydrogen derivatives in a scalable and localized way. The first plant at Stord will open in May 2023. The second plant in Egersund is under construction. Read more about HYDS at www.hydrogensolutions.no/
