An international consortium, which consists of parties including German AIH and Hyentec as well as France's Areva, plans to establish one of the world's largest hydrogen production facilities in Europe. The new plant will be located in Norway, report Norwegian media.

The hydrogen electrolysis plant will be located in Lille Jelsa in the Norwegian Suldal region and will boast capacity of 10 MW. At the forefront of the project, Norsk H2 will handle operations of the 6,000 square meter plant. One of the reasons for choosing the location was that there is already a large quay for vessels to use. The idea is that major parts of production will be exported for use in the European transportation sector when the plant is up and running in 2020.
