Norway Looking to Finland for Green Hydrogen Expansion
Norwegian Hydrogen has selected a 20-hectare area in Tornio, Finland as one of the company’s locations for green hydrogen production.

The reserved site is situated in the Arctic North industrial area, a unique and attractive region to invest in given the growing demand for hydrogen in industry and transportation, the company noted.

Simen Skaare Eriksen, Chief Commercial Officer of Norwegian Hydrogen, commented: “Our venture in Finland is very important for Norwegian Hydrogen, marking our commitment to contribute to the development of a sustainable society and economic vitality in the entire Nordic region.”

Norwegian Hydrogen’s wholly-owned subsidiary Vireon, which was established in 2023 as the provider of hydrogen refuelling for heavy-duty transport in the Nordic region, is actively engaged in developing and constructing hydrogen fuelling infrastructure in the area.

Petri Luoma, Project Director of Norwegian Hydrogen Finland, said: “Tornio emerged as a natural choice, aligning perfectly with our goals. The city’s industrial landscape, coupled with its transport and energy infrastructure, presents an optimal setting for hydrogen production.”

Hannaleena Posti, Deputy CEO of Business Tornio, also commented: “Norwegian Hydrogen’s plan summarises very well the long-term work done in the development of Arctio North and highlights the region’s potential for the hydrogen economy.

“We are very pleased that Tornio has been chosen as a key part of Norwegian Hydrogen’s plan towards a sustainable future.”
