HØST PtX Esbjerg - A greener future for agriculture and shipping

Climate change Solutions

HØST PtX Esbjerg is a ground-breaking new Power-to-X plant being developed by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP), which will harness renewable powered electrolysis to produce green ammonia. The ammonia will be used both as fertilizer and as a clean shipping fuel, and will play an important role in the decarbonisation of the agricultural and shipping industries in Denmark.

Once in operation, the 1GW plant will be one of Europe’s largest Power-to-X facilities, and will provide number of additional advantages beyond a plentiful supply of green ammonia. For instance, the excess heat from the plant will supply emission-free district heating to 15,000 households in the surrounding municipalities, the plant’s operations will generate as many as 150 permanent green jobs, and the entire project will contribute to 1.5 million tons of emissions reductions annually.

CIP is partnering with Danish market leaders in agriculture (Arla, Danish Crown, DLG) and shipping (A.P. Møller-Mærsk and DFDS), to supply them with green ammonia from the plant. COWI is assisting CIP with many aspects of this pioneering project – from spatial planning, risk analysis, safety and environmental assessments to planning and early project maturation. Construction is expected to begin in 2022.
