The development of the Tornio production facility reflects the company's commitment be at the forefront of the hydrogen economy across the Nordic countries. The growing demand for hydrogen in industry and transportation offers a unique opportunity to invest in the region.

In 2023, Norwegian Hydrogen established its wholly owned subsidiary, Vireon, as the leading provider of hydrogen refueling for heavy-duty transport in the Nordic region. Vireon is actively engaged in developing and constructing hydrogen fueling infrastructure, first of all throughout the Nordic region. While Vireon’s plans in Finland have been known for some time, Norwegian Hydrogen’s activities related to the production of green hydrogen and green hydrogen derivatives have not been announced until now.

Our venture in Finland is very important for Norwegian Hydrogen, marking our commitment to contribute to the development of a sustainable society and economic vitality in the entire Nordic region.
Simen Skaare Eriksen, Chief Commercial Officer of Norwegian Hydrogen

The expansion has been warmly received by local officials and business leaders. The city of Tornio and Business Tornio have been instrumental in facilitating this venture.

Norwegian Hydrogen's plan summarizes very well the long-term work done in the development of Arctio North and highlights the region's potential for the hydrogen economy. We are very pleased that Tornio has been chosen as a key part of Norwegian Hydrogen's plan towards a sustainable future.

Petri Luoma, Project Director of Norwegian Hydrogen Finland Oy, shared his enthusiasm for Tornio as the ideal location for this ambitious project.

Tornio emerged as a natural choice, aligning perfectly with our goals. The city's industrial landscape, coupled with its transport and energy infrastructure, presents an optimal setting for hydrogen production.
