Denmark’s Everfuel has teamed up with aluminium producer Norsk Hydro’s renewable hydrogen company on hydrogen supply for industrial and mobility use.
The two companies will seek to establish a framework for hydrogen electrolysers based on renewable energy in Europe.
The partnership aims to develop projects adjacent to Hydro-owned aluminum plants with dedicated special purpose companies facilitating the construction and operation of each electrolyser. These will either be fully owned by Hydro, or majority owned by Everfuel.
Initially, the companies have agreed to focus on three sites in Norway and in mainland Europe, to be announced Q2 2021. Everfuel will be the majority owner of two of the three initial sites.
Everfuel is currently developing a hydrogen distribution center solution for high capacity hydrogen trailers. As part of the cooperation with Hydro, Everfuel will install and operate hydrogen distribution centers at the electrolyser sites adjacent to Hydro-owned aluminum plants.
