Danish Minister cut first sod
On 4 April, 2016, the Danish Minister for Energy, Utilities and Climate, Lars Chr. Lilleholt cut the first sod for the facility that will deliver hydrogen from 2017 as part of the HyBalance project.
The facility is to be located near Hobro in northern Denmark.
At the event, the minister said: ”Hydrogen is one of the technologies which we will focus on in the future. I am therefore very pleased that Denmark, with this facility, is positioning itself at the forefront. We will be able to show that we are leading the way. That this not just talk but no action, but something that is taking place in the real world”.
The event was also attended by the Mayor of Mariagerfjord Municipality, Mogens Jespersen, who said: “This facility will be very important, and we have already received requests from other companies, who are interested in relocating in the same area solely because of the location of the coming hydrogen factory. It will mean a great deal for us. This is just the beginning of something really big.”
Lars Udby, CEO of the Danish partner Hydrogen Valley, thanked Air Liquide and the other partners in the project as well as FCHJU and Energinet.dk for helping realise the project, which has been underway for almost three years.
