Swedish state-owned energy group Vattenfall is starting a new project in the production of fossil-free hydrogen at the Ringhals nuclear power plant. Vattenfall states in a press release that the project increases the flexibility around utilisation of the electricity grid and electricity production when planning for new electricity production from nuclear power and offshore wind power. Hydrogen is also in demand in large volumes among customers on Sweden's west coast. Andreas Regnell, Head of Strategic Development at Vattenfall, said that there are good conditions for building electrolysers at Ringhals. He added that Vattenfall sees opportunities to reduce emissions on the Swedish west coast through electrification with fossil-free hydrogen, especially in the refinery and petrochemical industry.
