Liquid Wind partners with Umeå Energi on electrofuel facility in Umeå; 3rd electrofuel plant for maritime in Sweden

A feasibility study carried out by Liquid Wind in partnership with Umeå Energi confirmed that there are excellent conditions for establishing Sweden’s third electrofuel facility for the maritime sector at the Dåva cogeneration plant in Umeå. Liquid Wind and Umeå Energi have now launched a partnership to make the facility a reality.

he Dåva facility will follow the Örnsköldsvik and Sundsvall facilities already being developed in Västernorrland. The transition to electrofuels in the maritime sector which uses 300 million tons of fossil fuels every year is very urgent. With electrofuel replacing today’s fossil fuels, carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced by over 90%.

—Claes Fredriksson, CEO and founder of Liquid Wind

All documents required for an investment decision are planned to be ready in 2024, with an expected production start in 2026.
