Norwegian Hydrogen produced first gram of hydrogen molecule with max capacity of 1.3 tons per day

Norwegian Hydrogen has successfully produced the first grams of green hydrogen molecules at Hellesylt site in Norway. Developed, built, and operated by Norwegian Hydrogen, the project has now entered its final commissioning and test phase, getting ready for full commercial operation in only a few weeks.

Utilizing renewable energy sources from local hydropower stations in Hellesylt, the green hydrogen production plant at Hellesylt stands as one of Norway’s pioneering green hydrogen plants. The facility is dedicated to enabling zero emissions in the Geiranger World Heritage Fjord and will initially serve a broader region, marking a significant step in Norway’s green energy transition.

Hellesylt Hydrogen Hub will also open the first high-capacity hydrogen refueling station in the region, through Vireon, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Norwegian Hydrogen serving the heavy-duty mobility segment.

During the upcoming weeks, there will be rigorous testing and optimization of the facility to ensure a smooth transition into full production. The plant is expected to gradually ramp up its output, ultimately reaching a maximum capacity of 1.3 tons of green hydrogen per day.

The first deliveries of green hydrogen from Hellesylt will be made to Veidekke, Cyan Energy, Skulebas and Vireon, as previously announced.

Jens Berge said, “With Kåre’s deep understanding of the Hellesylt project and his in-depth experience with hydrogen technology, gained both with us as well as earlier in his career, we have identified the best person for this position. His leadership will be instrumental as we begin production and contribute to the growth of green hydrogen as a key energy source in this region.”

Kåre Nerem expresses his enthusiasm for his new role, stating: “I am honored to take on the position of Operations Manager for our Hellesylt site. Having worked closely on this project, I am excited to lead our team as we begin production and contribute to the growth of green hydrogen.”
