Landsvirkjun said the partnership will combine Landsvirkjun’s renewable power expertise with Linde’s chemical industry knowledge to accelerate the development of green hydrogen and e-fuels.

Rikardur Rikardsson, Executive Vice President of Business Development and Innovation at Landsvirkjun, said: “We welcome this collaboration with Linde, which enables us to continue the development of projects with the aim of producing e-fuels for transport and other novel energy transition off-takers by the year 2025.”

“The development of e-fuel projects is a challenging task that requires knowledge, experience, and perseverance. Both companies possess these attributes and can ensure that all technical, planning, environmental, and safety matters will be well implemented.”

Daniel Mateos, Head of Business Development, Linde, Region Europe North, commented: “We are looking forward to working with Landsvirkjun to help Iceland achieve its ambitious decarbonisation goals.”

“Linde and Landsvirkjun are aiming to play a key role in the clean energy transition in Iceland. The complementary strengths and expertise of both companies across the full value chain, from renewable energies to clean fuels, will enable the safe and reliable supply of clean hydrogen and e-fuels.”

To note, Linde already supplies Icelandic customers with locally produced oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide, and it operates a cylinder-filling site.
