Energy offtake agreement signed with Vardar

April 11th, 2024

Vow Green Metals (the “Company”), a leading developer of production facilities for biocarbon and other carbon-neutral products, and Vardar AS, a regional renewable energy producer with operations and ownership within bioenergy, CCU, wind, solar and hydropower, have signed a long-term energy offtake agreement securing offtake of all excess energy produced from the production facility at Hønefoss.

Vardar operates the district heating network in the Hønefoss region through its subsidiary Vardar Varme AS and distributes thermal energy at Treklyngen Industrial Park where the large-scale biocarbon production facility is under development.

In relation to the completed infrastructure work on the plot of the facility, Vardar Varme invested in district heating pipes connecting the production plant to its district heating network, enabling energy offtake under the terms of the signed energy offtake agreement. Vow Green Metals is expecting to deliver about 45 GWh from the facility on an annual basis.

The large-scale biocarbon production facility at Hønefoss will become one of Europe’s largest, with its 20,000 tons production capacity and abatement potential of 100,000 tons of fossil CO2 p.a.
