General – Pre-feasibility Study
AFRY Management Consulting announced its involvement in the pre-feasibility study of the Nordic-Baltic Hydrogen Corridor.
The Corridor’s objective is to create a connection between green energy production regions in Northern Europe with the main consumption centres in Central Europe. As winner of the tender, AFRY will analyse the conditions for cross-border hydrogen infrastructure development from Finland, through the Baltic countries and Poland to Germany, as well as green hydrogen trends in the region.
The goal of the Nordic-Baltic Hydrogen Corridor project is to create the connection between green energy production regions in Northern Europe with the main consumption centres in Central Europe. This project is expected to be implemented by 2030.
It is considered that this hydrogen corridor would create great opportunities for the development of energy and related ecosystems. It will promote the development of renewable electricity production, utilisation of renewable energy sources, accelerate the hydrogen economy development and contribute to the implementation of European climate goals. Furthermore, it will create conditions for investment in industrial and technological innovation along the entire pipeline route, reduce energy transportation costs, create jobs, and generate additional income for the states.
The Nordic-Baltic Hydrogen Corridor project aims to strongly support the regional and EU climate targets. Based on the recommendations of the Pre-feasibility Study on the hydrogen corridor, the project partners will make decisions on the further development of the project.
