Foundation stone of Finland’s first industrial-scale green hydrogen production plant laid

On 20 January, the foundation stone of P2X Solutions’ green hydrogen and synthetic methane production plant in Harjavalta was laid. Scheduled to be completed in 2024, the facility is Finland’s first industrial-scale green hydrogen production plant that is progressing to the construction stage.

The electrolysis capacity of the Harjavalta plant will be 20 MW. The plant is also to include methanation capacity for the production of renewable synthetic methane from hydrogen and captured CO2.

“Today, we are making history in Finnish industry in Harjavalta,” said Esa Härmälä, Chairman of the Board of P2X Solutions. “Once completed in 2024, P2X Solutions’ plant will open the market for Finnish green hydrogen. We believe that the Harjavalta plant is only the first development step in taking Finland to the top of the European hydrogen economy.”

Established in 2020, P2X Solutions aims to achieve 1 GW of electrolysis capacity by 2031.

In 2021, the Harjavalta plant received a grant of approximately €26 million for new energy technology from the Finnish Ministry of Employment and the Economy. In addition, the project has been funded by the Finnish Climate Fund.
