The Danish partnership of Topsoe, Skovgaard Energy and Vestas has reached a milestone. Today, the partners officially started construction of the demonstration plant in Lemvig, Denmark, which will produce green ammonia based on renewable energy and water electrolysis.

The project will demonstrate how renewable energy can be directly connected to the ammonia plant while taking into account the fluctuations in electricity production, making it a cost-effective way to produce green ammonia.

The plant is expected to be operational by 2023, making it the world’s first green ammonia plant of its kind.

The partnership has received DKK 81 million (approx. EUR 11 million) in funding from the Danish Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Programme (EUDP).

More than 5,000 tons of green ammonia annually from renewable energy. This production will prevent 8,200 tons of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere every year.

Power supplied from renewable energy sources:

50 MW of new solar panels and 12 MW of existing V80-2.0 MW Vestas wind turbines.
