Ireland headquartered Mainstream Renewable Power and Norway’s Aker Clean Hydrogen are partnering on the manufacturing of inexperienced hydrogen and low value ammonia in Chile.
Under a letter of intent the 2 corporations will collaborate on growing a whole and commercially viable inexperienced worth chain in Chile, drawing on Aker’s hydrogen mission improvement capabilities and Mainstream’s portfolio of wind and photo voltaic park tasks within the nation.
Aker Clean Hydrogen is a newly established subsidiary of unpolluted vitality investor Aker Horizons, which was set as much as develop industrial scale inexperienced hydrogen manufacturing services internationally. The initiative with Mainstream is one in every of a portfolio of 9 launch tasks and prospects.
Others embody a cooperation with Statkraft and Yara to ascertain Europe’s first industrial-scale inexperienced ammonia mission in Norway and different inexperienced ammonia tasks in Norway and Uruguay to advance emission free transport within the Arctic and Antarctic respectively.
