This week, we reported that St1 has awarded ÅF Pöyry with engineering assignment for a new renewable fuel production unit investment project. The new plant will be built in Gothenburg, Sweden, and is the largest single investment in St1’s history. The investment is estimated to approximately 1.5 billion SEK. ÅF Pöyry’s services includes all engineering disciplines, procurement and scheduling services. The project consists of new units, revamp of existing units and new storage facilities.  

St1 has decided to construct a hydrogen manufacturing unit with the goal of starting the production of renewable diesel at the refinery. The new plant will have a capacity to produce 200,000 tons per year of renewable fuel in the form of HVO (Hydrogenated Vegetable Oils), a renewable transport fuel that can be blended into diesel or replace diesel. The goal for production start is in the beginning of 2022.

What’s the St1 long-range view on hydrogen? Where do they see the biobased applications, where’s the technology, what do the economics look like, how’s the demand evolving? We’ve combined slides from two recent St1 presentations on their activities and ambitions in the field.
