Yara, Statkraft and Aker Horizon to establish Europe’s first large-scale green ammonia project in Grenland

The partners will target green hydrogen and green ammonia opportunities within shipping, agriculture and industrial applications, by electrifying Yara’s existing ammonia facility in Porsgrunn.

“Marvelous news! Only four months after the Government’s decision to build a CCS plant at Norcem’s factory in Brevik, Yara, Statkraft and Aker Horizon announce that they will establish green ammonia production on Herøya in Porsgrunn. This is important for climate change solutions in the future. Our region is establishing itself at the very top of the world in the industry’s climate change. The industry in Grenland has declared that they are on the road “from grey to green”. February 18th is a definitely an important day to reach the target.”, says county mayor of Vestfold and Telemark, Terje Riis-Johansen.
