The purpose of the LOI is to continue the negotiations for the establishment and investment in a commercial research center for testing and evaluation of Permascands products in a production plant which enables significant and important results for the project.
Peter Lundström, CEO at Permascand comments: ”It is a very positive and interesting start that we jointly can contribute to a development project of this kind. It is in line with Permascand’s growth plan and the construction of a full-scale technology centre to develop new technology for green hydrogen on the market, which is part of our quest for increased sustainability globally. The fact that the project also has a local connection makes it even more interesting”.
RES drives the development and establishment of a green hydrogen plant in Alby in the area designated by Ånge Municipality for establishment of power-intense industry. The goal is to be able to provide green hydrogen to the industry in a first stage, by the turn of 2024/2025. With a new grid connection, the facility will be gradually expanded on a larger scale by the turn of 2026/2027.
Matilda Afzelius, CEO at RES, comments: “This project is extremely important. We are at the forefront here and are contributing to a rapid transition to renewable energy. With this collaboration, we have the opportunity to do both local and global benefits.
