SK wins land approval to develop $15bn green hydrogen project in Canada


South Korea’s SK ecoplant Company has received approval to utilise a land for wind power generation as part of a $15bn green hydrogen project in Eastern Canada, a move that could see the region becoming home to one of the world’s largest hydrogen projects.

Named Nujio’qonik, the project uses renewably produced electricity to split water into its constituent atoms of hydrogen and oxygen through electrolysis. The green hydrogen generated will be converted into green ammonia to enable transport to global markets.

Announced last year by World Energy GH2, the project is part of the Net Zero solutions specialist’s plan to produce 180,000 metric tonnes of green hydrogen per year at the time of the project’s completion.

Having received site approval by the Canadian state governorate on 31st August 2023 to utilise for wind power generation, the project, located on the Newfoundland Island in Newfoundland and Labrador, will also generate up to 1,650 metric tonnes of renewable ammonia per day.
