The final seminar of the project H2 Ecosystem Roadmap for Ostrobothnia was held on the 27th of October and streamed online from the Vaasa Regional Development Company VASEK’s premises.


Over 50 people attended the seminar through Teams and the different project outputs were successfully presented. On top of presentations by Kaisa Penttilä (Hanken), Kjell-Owe Ahlskog (Alcea Ab), and Shiva Sharma (Novia) on the results of the three different work packages in the project, the audience was given an opportunity to hear Olli Takalammi’s presentation on the biggest Offshore Wind Power project planned in the region by OX2.



The seminar ended with greeting from the European and national level to the Ostrobothnian hydrogen actors from Mr Matti Malkamäki and Ms Minna Näsman from the BotH2nia network, and a discussion on the continuation of hydrogen networking activities in Ostrobothnia with input from Mats Brandt Regional Mayor of the Council of Ostrobothnia, Lasse Pohjala Project Manager at VASEK Vaasa Regional Development Company, and Tauno Kekäle project manager at Merinova and the Energy Sampo -platform.


The seminar was moderated by project leader Ossi Koskinen (VAMK). The full webinar recording and the materials that were presented are available on the project website. The whole project team wishes to thank the financiers, steering group members as well as all the over 150 individuals from business, research and public organisations who have participated in the project activities. The work for developing the hydrogen economy in Ostrobothnia will continue in collaboration with these actors to create successful ecosystems in this emerging business field.
