Horisont Energi’s Barents Blue project is to produce this clean fuel. The company recently announced a cooperation agreement with Equinor and Vår Energi on the joint development of Barents Blue. Moreover, this is Europe’s first large-scale production facility for blue ammonia.

The Barents Blue project is based on using natural gas, clean water, and renewable energy to produce clean ammonia. During the production process at the Barents Blue, more than 99 per cent of the CO2 will be captured and permanently stored in the offshore Polaris reservoir below the seabed offshore Finnmark.

Koole Terminals says it will play an important role in facilitating and supporting the distribution of this fuel from the Barents Blue production plant in Hammerfest, Northern Norway.
