OSLO, Norway, March 17, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nel Hydrogen Electrolyser AS, a subsidiary of Nel ASA (Nel, OSE:NEL), has received an order to supply an alkaline electrolyser system that produces environmentally friendly hydrogen for food production from COtwo and to provide electricity.
Solar Foods’ new production facility, called Factory 01, is under construction in Vantaa, Finland. According to the Company’s estimates, commercial production of Solein® should begin in the first half of 2023 and Factory 01 will serve as a platform for Solar Foods to ramp up production. Solein is produced by a bioprocess in which microorganisms feed on gases (carbon dioxide, hydrogen and oxygen) and small amounts of nutrients.
“This project shows us again the growing possibilities of green hydrogen solutions. We are very pleased to be working with Solar Foods,” said Henning Langås, Sales Director of Nel Hydrogen Electrolyser AS.
“We are delighted that the construction of Factory 01 is proceeding as planned. Nel provides us with technology for important process steps. We cannot wait for the plant to be operational in 2023,” says Ville-Veikko Vaaranmaa, Project Manager at Solar Foods.
The total value of the order is around 2 million euros and the delivery of the equipment is expected in late 2022 or early 2023.
