Seeking location for green ammonia plant

7. March 2022

Horisont Energi (EURONEXT: HRGI) and the energy company St1 Nordic Oy invite municipalities in the Finnmark region to discuss potential locations for a green ammonia plant in Finnmark based on new renewable energy.

In August 2021, Horisont Energi and St1 announced plans for a pre-study to explore the opportunities for a green ammonia plant, to develop a concept for a hybrid ammonia plant which will set a new standard for energy efficiency and cost efficiency for production of green ammonia. The concept will consist of hydrogen production from electrolysis from water, and hydrogen production based on biomass or biomethane.

“We truly believe that Finnmark is one of the best places in the world to locate facilities to be competitive in the market for green ammonia.”

CEO of Horisont Energi

The facilities can provide positive ripple effects for the host municipality, including new local and regional jobs and potential synergies with the fish farming industry utilising biogas.

“We are sending invitations to all municipalities with a coastline in Finnmark. We hope that this process can crystalise opportunities that fit our needs.”

CEO of Horisont Energi

The invitation is sent to the municipalities of Loppa, Hasvik, Alta, Hammerfest, Kvalsund, Måsøy, Porsanger, Nordkapp, Lebesby, Tana, Gamvik, Berlevåg, Nesseby, Sør-Varanger, Vadsø, Båtsfjord, Vardø, and Troms and Finnmark county.
