- On March 1st, 2022, the Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre, visited the Innovation Center in Narvik.

2022 has started off as expected, the major development projects are well under way in 2022. The fuel cell segment is expected to reach a level where the first prototype systems are ready for delivery in first half of 2023. The same applies for the maritime carbon capture and storage system (CCS); however, the first prototypes are expected in later in 2023. For CCS technologies, we are working on a few case studies with various CCS technologies. Both segments will strengthen the Group's position as an upcoming leading provider of green technology to the marine and heavy-duty application industries.
Through 2022 we are expected to see major progress for the planning and installation of equipment at the Innovation Center in Narvik. The planning phase is already well under way, and we expect several milestones to be reached through the remaining months of 2022.
"I am humble and proud of the dedication shown among all TECO2030 employees to continue with the world-leading fuel cell development and the production facility in Narvik, in line with customer expectations, market trends and upcoming environmental regulations," said Tore Enger, Group CEO, TECO2030.
