H2 Green Steel and Port of Luleå have signed a cooperation agreement. Under the agreement, H2 Green Steel chooses the port in Luleå as its primary logistics and transportation hub for intermediate goods and products to be transported to and from its new steel mill in Boden.
In the fall of 2022, a letter of intent was signed between H2 Green Steel, Port of Luleå and the port’s owner, Luleå Municipality. Throughout 2023, a collaboration agreement has been negotiated and is now signed by both parties. The agreement guarantees H2 Green Steel access to the Port of Luleå and commits the steel company to utilise the port for some of their in- and outflow of intermediate goods and products.
Thanks to good cooperation and a shared vision, we now have a clear plan for our next steps
"This new cooperation agreement with the Port of Luleå is yet another important piece of our puzzle in succeeding with our green steel mill in Boden. We have been working very closely with Luleå Municipality and the Port of Luleå since day one of our launch. Thanks to good cooperation and a shared vision, we now have a clear plan for our next steps. We fully understand the challenges that Port of Luleå are facing in securing necessary land as well as financing, and we are grateful that we now can focus on concrete solutions that align with our tight time plan,” says Carl-Erik Lagercrantz, vice chairman of H2 Green Steel.
For H2 Green Steel, who aims to begin production of green steel in Boden as early as end of 2025, the agreement allows them to plan for a logistics and transportation solution involving cargo flow through the port in Luleå.
