Danish company Skovgaard Energy and Japan’s Sumitomo Corporation have recently formalized their intent to collaborate in the field of power-to-x (PtX).
Skovgaard Energy is currently in the process of building an adaptable and eco-friendly ammonia production facility, which will be powered directly by 100% wind and solar energy and located on-site.
This initiative aims to showcase that the dynamic Haber-Bosch ammonia synthesis process can serve as a promising energy storage solution, eliminating the need for interim hydrogen storage. The project is receiving financial support from the Danish EUDP program, with Topsoe and Vestas participating as project partners.
Production at the facility is scheduled to commence in the middle of 2024.
Sumitomo is contributing investment to the project, the exact amount has not been disclosed, and is bringing their extensive industry expertise to the table.
“We look forward to collaborating with Skovgaard Energy, which we consider highly competent in their field.
Head of Energy Innovation Initiative, Ko Akiyama, from Sumitomo Corporation Europe Limited, said “Located in Europe’s hotspot for the green transition with great wind and solar resources, state-of-the-art infrastructure and backup by local stakeholders, it is obvious for us to begin our journey in this field here.”
Fertilizers are essential for maintaining agricultural productivity.
According to the companies, the North Sea, Northwest Jutland, and Thyboron Port offer an ideal location for establishing production and distribution facilities.
Skovgaard Energy’s Chief Sales Officer, Bjarke Mollerup Bitsch, said “We are thrilled to be at the forefront of this transformative project that combines renewable energy and green ammonia production.”
“By replacing natural gas with green electricity, we can help farmers and vessel operators reduce their carbon footprint and secure more stable food and fuel prices.”
“The flexible ammonia production technology setup is a significant step forward for democratising access to cheap, green ammonia.”
“Together with Sumitomo we will have both resources and competencies for future upscaled projects.”
