Nordic Hydrogen Route is an initiative between Gasgrid Finland and Nordion Energi to accelerate the creation of a hydrogen economy by building up a cross-border hydrogen infrastructure in Bothnian Bay region and an open hydrogen market by 2030. The aim of Nordic Hydrogen Route is to drive decarbonization, support regional green industrialization, economic development, and European energy independence. The companies seek to develop a network of pipelines that would effectively transport and store energy from producers to consumers to ensure they have access to an open, reliable, and safe hydrogen market.

Nordic Hydrogen Route to be developed by Nordion Energi and Gasgrid Finland, national gas TSOs with long-term experience in gas pipeline infrastructure projects and operation.

Gasgrid Finland Oy is a Finnish state-owned company and transmission system operator with system responsibility, offering the customers safe, reliable and cost-efficient transmission of gases.

Due to experience and expertise, the companies are well placed to collaborate to realize the Nordic Hydrogen Route, from planning to operation. The companies are proactively developing cross-border hydrogen infrastructure, paving the way for new investments in the Bothnian Bay area. The intention to collaborate on this project started in January 2022, following cooperation under the umbrella of the European Hydrogen Backbone (EHB), which is an initiative consisting of 31 European gas infrastructure companies working together to plan pan-European dedicated hydrogen transport infrastructure.
