Neste, Gasgrid Finland, Helen, and Vantaa Energy have started preliminary studies on the development of an industrial hydrogen valley in the Uusimaa region, Finland. The joint effort is a step forward in driving Finland as a leading hydrogen economy in Europe. The move will create industrial investment opportunities and support Europe’s carbon neutrality goals.

The industrial hydrogen valley will combine infrastructure, storage and transmission of renewable hydrogen, serving both producers and consumers of hydrogen. In addition, sector integration opportunities are a key element in the studies. Significant amounts of renewable heat will be generated that can be utilised in district heating.

‘Building up both the power infrastructure as well as hydrogen storage and distribution infrastructure are key enablers for the hydrogen economy development. By being open to collaboration and seeking partnerships we discover new paths and unlock a world of interesting possibilities,’ says Outi Ervasti, vice president, renewable hydrogen at Neste.

‘Renewable hydrogen is a key enabler for new processes, such as carbon capture and utilization, that are needed to harness unavoidable emissions e.g. from our Waste to Energy business operations to further use,’ says Kalle Patomeri, business director of Vantaa Energy.
