Minnova Renewable Energy and the City of Flin Flon have entered into a non-binding memorandum of understanding pursuant to which Minnova and the City aim to promote the valuation and possible future development of large-scale green hydrogen production based on renewable hydroelectric power.
Minnova will work with the City and other stakeholders to initiate studies to evaluate and address the challenges of large-scale green hydrogen production and distribution and the extended supply chain of conversion, storage and transport with the goal of providing actionable recommendations to governments and industry to take full advantage of local infrastructure.
Minnova completed a positive feasibility study on the restart of their PL Gold Mine 65 kilometers northeast of the City of Flin Flon and are familiar with the City’s infrastructure and commitment to innovation and rejuvenating its industrial base.
Mayor George Fontaine stated they are very pleased to work with Minnova in moving forward with green hydrogen production adding this is one of many initiatives they have underway that positions our city as an attractive option for green industries.
Hydrogen is used primarily for oil refining, ammonia production, methanol production and steel production.
