The Node Pole collaboration comes to an end


Node Pole has put Sweden on the map when it comes to sustainable industrial production. The company, a collaboration between Vattenfall and Skellefteå Kraft, has generated many new establishments in Sweden in recent years. Based on these successful results, the goals for Node Pole have been achieved, and the owners therefore choose to end the Node Pole collaboration.

Node Pole has attracted and developed green industries in Sweden and the Nordics since 2017. Node Pole has acted as a catalyst for the Swedish, green industrial wonder. The company has been a successful collaboration between energy companies Vattenfall and Skellefteå Kraft.

-    It has been an amazing journey where we have made a big difference for both our customers and for the development in Sweden. It is the foundation for a new industrial era in Sweden, and I am extremely proud of what we have achieved, says Christoffer Svanberg, CEO of Node Pole.

Node Pole has collaborated with grid companies, municipalities, regions, authorities, and Business Sweden to develop the Swedish offer for sustainable industrial production within industry segments such as battery production and various forms of electro fuels. Among the more notable projects we find Northvolt and Microsoft, where Node Pole played a vital role in how these projects developed in Sweden.

-    At Skellefteå Kraft, we push for societal transformation, and what Node Pole has achieved is another testament of that. It is also proof of what can be achieved when you do things together, and together with Vattenfall, we have pushed forward the industrial progress in Sweden, says Joachim Nordin, CEO of Skellefteå Kraft.

The energy industry has always been an enabler of industrial development. This foundation laid by Node Pole creates further opportunities for energy intensive industries to grow in Sweden and the Nordic region over time.

-    Sweden is now a green industrial hub for the whole of Europe, a trend that will continue. And with the planned expansion of the Swedish electricity production, even better conditions for this are created. Both Vattenfall and Skellefteå Kraft will continue to enable a fossil free industrial development in Sweden, says Johan Dasht, CEO of Vattenfall Vattenkraft AB. 

What has been achieved in Sweden in the last couple of years is the result of well working collaborations throughout society, and this is part of the reason why it is so attractive to invest in Sweden.

-    I would like to thank everyone who has collaborated with us and contributed to the progress we now see. Sweden is well positioned for the future and this development that will continue for many years, concludes Christoffer Svanberg.
