New Hydrogen Facility Opens in Norwegian Harbour
Dalane Energi and Hydrogen Solution have launched a new hydrogen production facility in Egersund harbor as a part of the EU-funded ROBINSON H2020 project.

It is the first facility in Rogaland that will use renewable electricity to produce green hydrogen for commercial use.

Construction of the hydrogen production plant was completed in 2023, and Danish company Green Hydrogen System delivered electrolyzers through its Norwegian partner Liquiline.

Once the ROBINSON project ends in the fall of 2024, Dalane Hydrogen AS will take over the facility. Dalane Hydrogen AS is owned by Dalane Energi AS, Hydrogen Solutions AS (HYDS), and Eigersund Næring og Havn KF.

Idar Sønstabø, CEO at Dalane Energi said: “The market for green hydrogen is experiencing rapid and significant growth. Egersund harbor will be the first location in Rogaland to produce green hydrogen using electricity that is 100 percent renewable – meaning from water, wind, or solar sources.

“Hydrogen serves as an energy carrier similar to other gases and has comparable efficiency. This opens up significant opportunities for a harbor strategically positioned for shipping.”
