Vireon, a subsidiary of Norwegian Hydrogen and a leading hydrogen refueling company in the Nordics, has been awarded a €9.2 million grant by the European Union. This funding is set to revolutionize the green hydrogen infrastructure by constructing production and refueling stations for heavy-duty vehicles across Finland and Denmark, marking a significant advance in Vireon’s effort to decarbonize Europe’s transportation sector. This EU grant, the second for Norwegian Hydrogen following a €9 million award earlier this year for a project in Denmark, totals a substantial investment in the company’s green hydrogen initiatives. Jens Berge, CEO of Norwegian Hydrogen, expressed pride in this dual achievement, emphasizing its impact on strengthening their leadership in the green energy transition. The project plans include a 5 MW electrolyzer and an extensive network of green hydrogen refueling stations extending from Northern Finland through Sweden and Denmark into continental Europe. This network will support the zero-emission transportation corridor for heavy-duty vehicles. The funded initiative will facilitate the construction of seven stations across the two countries, enhancing access for both passenger and commercial vehicles. In Finland, the stations will be strategically placed in Tornio, Liminka, Jyväskylä, and the greater Helsinki area. In Denmark, stations will arise in northern Jutland, Vejle, and Padborg. Per Øyvind Voie, Managing Director of Vireon, highlighted the readiness to build these stations in anticipation of hydrogen trucks expected to hit the market by 2025. The project is supported by the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), which aligns with the European Green Deal’s objectives. CEF’s commitment to fostering sustainable and interconnected trans-European networks is pivotal to Europe’s broader decarbonization goals, aiming for a sustainable future by 2030 and 2050. Established in 2023, Vireon is at the forefront of the hydrogen refueling industry in the Nordics, focusing on heavy-duty transport. With a strong presence in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Finland, and backed by significant EU funding, Vireon is poised to play a crucial role in enabling zero-emission solutions for the region’s transport sector.
