Jaakko Eskola to strengthen the Board of P2X Solutions

P2X Solutions, a Finnish pioneer in green hydrogen and power-to-x technology, has appointed Jaakko Eskola, Chairman of the Board of Enersense International, as a new member of its Board. In February, Enersense confirmed that it had made an equity investment of EUR 13 million in P2X Solutions.

Jaakko Eskola also serves as, e.g., Chairman of the Board of Varma Pension Insurance Corporation, Neles Corporation, Suominen Corporation and the Technology Industries of Finland. He has strong experience in the energy and marine industries after serving as President and CEO of Wärtsilä Corporation from 2015 to 2021 and before that in several management positions in the company.

“P2X Solutions is a pioneer in opening the green hydrogen market and enabling significant emission reductions for industry and transportation. The company’s solutions improve our energy self-sufficiency and lead the entire Finnish society and business community towards carbon neutrality, which I look forward to contributing to”, says Jaakko Eskola.

The construction of P2X Solutions’ first 20 MW green hydrogen production plant and methanation unit will begin in Harjavalta in the autumn of 2022 and is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2024. The plant will reduce Finland’s CO2 emissions by approximately 40 thousand tons annually. The company has already begun preparations for the construction of subsequent plants.

“I warmly welcome Jaakko Eskola and his solid experience and diverse expertise to our Board. Together, we are again gearing up on our journey towards an emission-free welfare society”, describes Herkko Plit, Founder and CEO of P2X Solutions.

Esa Härmälä will continue as Chairman of the Board of P2X Solutions, and Marjo Miettinen, Timo Ahopelto and Herkko Plit will continue as members of the Board.
