RES announces new hydrogen project in Sweden - acquiring historic industrial area

RES announced the acquisition of a 60 acre industrial area in Ljungaverk, in northern Sweden. RES will use the site to develop a new hydrogen plant which will produce green hydrogen for local industry.

The Ljungaverk historic industrial area has long been known for its chemical industry. It will now be transformed into a modern production plant for delivering green hydrogen to local industries, enabling sustainable local growth and job opportunities. For RES, the world’s largest renewable energy company, it is the second hydrogen project in the area. They are already developing wind farms locally along with the Alby hydrogen plant.

“It is an honor to have the opportunity to be part of Ljungaverk's exciting new development. It is a historic industrial location  with good conditions for new projects. There is close access to grid connection and renewable energy production. It feels symbolic that we get to carry on the innovative history of the area in modern times”, says Sigrid Nord, project manager at RES.

Erik Lövgren, The Mayor of the Executive Committee of Ånge Municipality commented: “I welcome that the deal has been closed and look forward to the continued development in Ljungaverk.”

Together with Ellevio, an electricity distribution company in Sweden, they have enabled the expansion of the Tovåsen main grid station - and the renewable energy cluster that has emerged in the Ånge region, in the north of Sweden. RES is well known in the area for the development of the Alby Hydrogen plant plus Björnberget and Gubbaberget Wind Farms.

“Right now we are carrying out investigations around safety, risk management and water availability and we see great opportunities and potential in Ljungaverk. We respect the history of the place and therefore want to investigate new possible areas of use for the historic buildings”, says Sigrid.

“It is very gratifying to develop projects like Ljungaverk in a municipality that is engaged in renewable energy. In order to succeed with a transformation, it is necessary to take an approach where everything is connected. And Ånge municipality is a good example of that.

Tovåsen enabled the expansion of wind and solar power, which in turn enables the expansion of green hydrogen, says Magnus Igel, RES’ Development Director in the Nordics.
