TECO 2030 will cooperate with Implenia to develop hydrogen-based power solutions for construction sites.

“The construction of roads, tunnels, bridges and other transport infrastructure has until now largely relied on diesel as an energy source. This is not in line with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement and has to change,” said Tore Enger, CEO of TECO 2030 ASA.

“Our fuel cells can be used for large ships and other heavy-duty applications, such as powering the equipment used at construction sites. We are very pleased that an industry leader like Implenia chose to cooperate with TECO 2030 to develop and pilot the fuel cells they need to reach their climate goals,” Enger added.

“Implenia has ambitious sustainability goals for our operations, and we fully support the Norwegian government’s target of ensuring that all transport sector construction sites are fossil-free by 2025. Our cooperation with TECO 2030 is a key part of our strategic plan and corporate value of sustainabi­lity to contribute to reaching this goal,” said Audun Aaland, CEO of Implenia Norge AS.

Implenia Norge AS is a subsidiary of Implenia AG, a multinational construction company with approxi­mately 9.000 employees that is headquartered in Switzerland. In Norway, Implenia is currently involved in a number of large infrastructure projects and recently announced a major contract in planning and building parts of a new metro line in Oslo, known as “Fornebubanen”.

The agreement for development and piloting of hydrogen powered construction solutions has been signed between TECO 2030 and Implenia Norge AS. It covers a period of five years and includes three initial steps, including project financing, product development and commercialization and use. The first fuel cell delivery is planned to take place in January 2023. Implenia is looking into various finan­cing options for the project and has applied for funding from the Norwegian state enterprise ENOVA.

The Norwegian government recently announced a new strategy to increase its efforts to cut emis­sions from transport sector construction sites and has introduced a firm target that these should all be fossil-free by 2025. The strategy entails a plan to engage in pilot projects and rely on public procurement as a means to this end.
