By 2026, Íslenska vetnisfélagið is set to develop an integrated production and distribution system for green hydrogen along the entire Ring Road of Iceland. Two existing hydrogen refuelling stations in Reykjavík will be supplemented by four new stations: one in Reykjavik and three others in the strategically-positioned locations of Akureyri, Egilsstaðir and Freysnes. The longest distance between stations will be approximately 380 km, making it possible to drive around Iceland while emitting only water vapour and no harmful emissions.
To supply hydrogen fuel to the stations, we are developing a pilot 5 MW electrolyser at a facility in the industrial port of Grundartangi just north of Reykjavik. Within the next few years, this site will house our large-scale hydrogen production plant to meet the expected increase in hydrogen demand across Iceland.
