Construction of Finland’s first green hydrogen plant begins

P2X Solutions Oy, a Finnish provider of Power-to-X technology, has officially begun work on a 20-MW project that will build Finland’s first commercial-scale green hydrogen production station. The plant, which will be situated in the town of Harjavalta in the region of Western Finland, will generate green hydrogen using technology supplied by Germany’s Sunfire GmbH. Furthermore, the complex is planned to become operational in 2024, with some of its output planned to be processed into renewable synthetic fuels, such as synthetic methane. According to the developer’s estimates, the production will help lower Finland’s carbon dioxide emissions by 40,000 tonnes annually. 

The Helsinki-based company will invest about €70 million to build the industrial-scale park. The project is supported by the Finnish Ministry of Employment and the Economy and the Finnish Climate Fund with €36 million in funding. P2X Solutions, which was founded in 2020, aims to install 1 GW of green hydrogen production capacity by 2031.
