Sweco Selected to Build Helsinki’s First Green Hydrogen Production Plant

Finnish energy company Helen has chosen Sweco as its EPCM partner for implementing Helsinki’s inaugural green hydrogen production plant.

Production is slated to commence in 2026, targeting the heavy-duty transport sector. Excess heat from production will be integrated into Helen’s district heating network, boosting plant energy efficiency to over 90%.

Helen, a major player in Finland’s energy sector, has a longstanding partnership with Sweco, who has served as EPCM partner in various heating and cooling plant projects. The 3H2 Helsinki Hydrogen Hub represents Helen’s first hydrogen venture, functioning as a pilot plant with a capacity of approximately three megawatts.

“Sweco’s extensive experience as an advisor and EPCM partner for Helen, coupled with our hydrogen expertise across Finland and Europe, ensures smooth project delivery. We are committed to advancing Helen’s carbon neutrality goals in this green transition journey,” remarked Thomas Hietto, Business Area President of Sweco Finland.

Sweco’s responsibilities as EPCM partner encompass regional infrastructure planning, including architectural, structural engineering, and plant design, alongside project management, procurement, and site management services. The electrolyser and related equipment will be provided and installed by another partner.

“The 3H2 project is groundbreaking, integrating electricity, transport, heating, and hydrogen sectors with flexibility. Hydrogen is pivotal in Helen’s new strategy, and we’re dedicated to its business development. We look forward to continuing our successful collaboration with Sweco to build Helsinki’s inaugural green hydrogen production plant,” stated Sari Mannonen, SVP of New Business and Hydrogen at Helen.

In supporting the energy transition, Sweco unites expertise in critical areas like renewable energy production, electricity grid expansion, efficient energy use, and technological advancements such as hydrogen storage, carbon capture and storage (CCS), and carbon capture and utilization (CCU).
