On April the 4th, 2016 the Danish Minister for Energy, Utilities and Climate, Lars Christian 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 the Northern part of Denmark.
At the event, the minister said: ”Hydrogen is one of the technologies which we will focus on in the future. Therefore I am very pleased that Denmark, with this facility, is positioning itself at the front. We will be able to show that we are leading the way. It is not just talk with a lot of show, but it is something which 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 have great importance, and we have already received requests from other companies, who are interested in being located in the same area solely because of the location of the coming hydrogen factory. It will mean a great deal. This is just the beginning of something really big”.
Lars Udby, CEO of Hydrogen Valley thanked Air Liquide and the other partners in the project as well as FCHJU and Energinet.dk for helping realize the project, which has been underway for almost 3 years.
