Four parties in Vaasa to cooperate in wind power-to-hydrogen-to-electricity project

This week Wärtsilä Finland, Vaasan Sähkö, EPV Energia and the City of Vaasa have signed a letter of intent to cooperate in a project aimed at utilising emissions-free hydrogen in power generation, industry and traffic applications. The project will be based in Vaasa and will focus on enabling a new way to store renewable energy. At the same time, the intention is to pilot a hydrogen-based energy generation solution suitable for export markets. It is thought that hydrogen can play a significant role in reaching global climate goals. Using electricity from renewable sources, hydrogen can be produced without emissions.
