Norsk e-Fuel has secured access to additional land in Vefsn municipality for future business expansion. With the first e-Fuel plant of Norsk e-Fuel being built in Mosjøen, also situated in the municipality, the company counts on a sustainable and long-term use of existing and future infrastructures. The planned development of the industrial sites around Mosjøen such as Nyland Øst follow the municipality’s goal to establish the region as key location in Norway for green industry.
Existing industrial history, the drive to establish the region as hub for renewable industry and favorable energy prices make Vefsn municipality in Northern Norway a unique location for sustainable businesses. Already in February 2022, the project development company Norsk e-Fuel has secured a 24,000 square meters large plot in Mosjøen, Vefsn municipality, for the construction of their first e-Fuel plant. Norsk e-Fuel and Vefsn municipality have now agreed to work together closely on developing industrial sites such as Nyland Øst to drive the establishment of new green industry in the region. Norsk e-Fuel is now first in line to secure up to 80,000 square meters of additional space to prepare for major business expansions and the increase the production of sustainable aviation fuel. This will allow Norsk e-Fuel to make long-term use of existing and future established infrastructures and to benefit from the unique conditions the region has to offer.
“We believe, Mosjøen and the adjacent region such as Nyland Øst are the perfect location for our company to build up the e-Fuel industry and to expand our business quickly. Not only is the region already an established industrial hub, but it is ready to create sustainable growth and is working closely with us to achieve this.”, says Lars-Bjørn Larsen, CCO of Norsk e-Fuel.
