Announced in spring 2022, the $12 billion Project Nujio’qonik is located in the Bay St George region of Newfoundland and Labrador. It is expected to supply 250,000 tonnes of renewable hydrogen per year to global markets. 

Project Nujio'qonik, a consortium of Canadian and international partners, will use more than 3GW of wind energy power from one of the world’s best wind resource regions to produce hydrogen on site, starting in 2025.

Topsoe’s ammonia loop technology will be used to generate up to 1,650t per day of renewable ammonia on the site.

Sundus Cordelia Ramli, CCO power-to-X at Topsoe, said: “We need projects like Nujio’qonik. Large-scale projects that can deliver the called-for renewable fuels and chemicals to decarbonise hard-to-abate sectors like steel, aviation and shipping.”
