Hy2gen to build green ammonia facility in Norway


Norway – Hy2gen intends to manufacture green ammonia as a fuel for the maritime sector in the municipality of Sauda, on Norway’s southwestern coast.

Hy2gen, Trafigura, and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners will own the Iverson eFuels green ammonia production facility (CIP). Agenda Vest and the UllaFrre fund are both supporting the project.

A pre-study was completed in 2021 in collaboration with Norconsult, and the project owners have now begun the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) phase, which will result in a full plan for the facility’s construction by 2023. Following a final investment decision, construction will begin in the first quarter of 2024, with the facility fully operational by the beginning of 2027.

The Iverson project will begin with a 240 megawatt electrolyzer capable of producing 600 metric tons of green ammonia per day, with the goal of significantly increasing production in the future. Green ammonia will provide a zero-carbon alternative marine fuel to traditional fossil fuels for the shipping industry.
