Skipavika Green Ammonia facility will be in Gulen municipality, near the Mongstad refinery on the west coast of Norway. Once completed in 2026, it will be Europe's inaugural emissions-free ammonia production site. The project has secured grid connection and is in advanced talks for Power Purchase Agreements.
“The agreement with EnBW ensures the development of the plant as EnBW will play a crucial role in commercializing the green ammonia sourced from SkiGAs production for long term offtake.”, says Cornel Russi, CEO of SkiGA. Hence, it marks a milestone in the use of green ammonia as part of a future carbon free energy system”, he adds. SkiGAs plant will have an annual production capacity of 100,00 tonnes.
Competitive towards a greener energy mix: Norwegian-German collaboration makes it possible
The development of the SkiGA is led by the Norwegian project developer, Fuella AS, specializing in Hydrogen and Ammonia projects. Notably, Allianz Capital Partners, on behalf of Allianz insurance companies committed to provide funding of EUR 20 million to support Fuella’s project pipeline towards execution and to accelerate the business development, reinforcing the project's significance.
“Fuella convinced us as partner with their hands-on approach, their industry expertise, and their great network with other strong partners, e.g. Allianz. We in EnBW want to be a long-term partner for Norway's ambitions to develop the future energy mix, both offshore wind, green hydrogen and ammonia. I believe this project will have substantial effects on local, national, and international scales. We are very excited to be part of this project”, adds Heydecker of EnBW.
