FREYR CEO joins HRH Crown Prince Haakon during official visit to Sweden
New York, Oslo and Luxembourg, May 2, 2022, FREYR Battery (NYSE: FREY) (“FREYR”), a developer of clean, next-generation battery cell production capacity, is pleased to announce that CEO Tom Einar Jensen will participate in the delegation of His Royal Highness (“HRH”) the Crown Prince of Norway during an official visit to Stockholm, Sweden, on May 2-4.
The purpose of the royal delegation is to engage with Her Royal Highness the Crown Princess of Sweden and other delegates from across the Swedish battery cell industry on how Norway and Sweden can build a stronger green industry together for the future. In addition to FREYR’s Jensen, other members of the delegation from Norway include the Norwegian Minister for Trade and Industry Jan Christian Vestre, Schibsted CEO Kristin Skogen Lund, and Finans Norge CEO Idar Kreutzer, among others.
Jensen will participate in discussions on days two and three of the visit, with a focus on how a green future can be stimulated through the development of the battery industry, offshore wind sources, and digitalization efforts. Minister Vestre and Swedish Minister of Trade and Nordic Affairs Anna Hallberg will also participate on this topic, along with Innovation Norway CEO Håkon Haugli, Business Sweden CEO Jan Larsson, IKT Norge Technology and Sustainability Director Mali Hole Skogen, in addition to Jensen.
“Collaboration across the public and private sectors is key to building the battery value chain to meet incoming demand as we shift our energy systems. We are eager to engage on topics tied to the green industry and enterprise with key stakeholders from both Norway and Sweden. The delegation’s theme centers around how our two nations can be stronger together, which resonates well with FREYR’s ambition to establish a local value chain in the Nordic region,” says Jensen.
“In Norway, we are operating at full speed to establish sustainable battery cell production facilities in Mo i Rana, starting with our Customer Qualification Plant. Here we can take advantage of Norway’s supply of renewable energy to ensure that our operations are as low carbon as possible. We aim to share this approach with our fellow delegates and talk about how we can move from words to action to enhance sustainability in other regions that are ideal for battery production,” he adds.
