Oulu Energy to Construct Hydrogen Plant in Finland


Oulu Energy is planning to build a 100 MW hydrogen production plant in Oulu, northern Finland. After completion, the plant would be a natural part of Oulu Energy’s goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2030. The partner for the project planning is Finnish P2X Solutions, which is currently constructing a hydrogen production plant in Harjavalta, western Finland.

According to the preliminary plan, the whole project planned in the Laanila industrial area would include an electrolysis plant with a capacity of up to 100 MW, a carbon capture plant, hydrogen and carbon dioxide storage, and a further processing plant whose final product could be methane or methanol, for example.

Additionally, the products created by the hydrogen plant could be used to replace fossil fuels in road, maritime and air transport. According to the preliminary estimate, approximately 200–400 GWh of heat energy per year would be created as a by-product, which could be transferred to the district heating network, while the oxygen could be recovered for industrial use.

Furthermore, the project aims to investigate the possibilities of recovering biogenic flue gases from local industry and power plants for further hydrogen processing. In the project development phase, the feasibility of the plant and location options are examined, and an impact assessment is carried out. The investment decision is scheduled to be made in autumn 2025, and the plant is planned to be ready by 2028.
