Yara officially inaugurates its green hydrogen plant in Norway

19 June 2024

Norwegian Prime Minister, Mr Jonas Gahr Støre, inaugurates Yara's renewable hydrogen plant at Herøya Industrial Park.

ITM is pleased to announce that the Norwegian Prime Minister, Mr Jonas Gahr Støre, today inaugurated Yara’s renewable hydrogen plant at Herøya Industrial Park, the largest of its kind currently in operation in Europe. Hydrogen is produced via electrolysis using renewable energy, replacing natural gas as feedstock. The plant will cut 41,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions from the site annually.

Utilising ITM’s state-of-the-art TRIDENT stack platform, the 24MW plant will provide enough green hydrogen to produce 20,500 tonnes of ammonia per year which can be converted to between 60,000 and 80,000 tonnes of green fertiliser. 

The green fertilisers produced at Herøya will form part of a new Yara Climate Choice portfolio, which includes solutions designed to benefit crops while reducing climate impact. 

Dennis Schulz, CEO of ITM, said: “It was an honour to attend the inauguration of the plant by the Prime Minister of Norway. Ammonia has long been used as a fertiliser but is typically produced from fossil fuels. Green ammonia offers significant potential, among other things, to decarbonise the agricultural sector. We are proud of our collaboration with Linde Engineering to deliver this groundbreaking project for Yara.”
