Hannes Snellman Counsel to SSAB in Its Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) Plant Project in Mississippi, USA

27 May 2024

Hannes Snellman advises SSAB in its pre-study phase project to build a Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) plant in Mississippi, USA. The contemplated DRI plant would be based on HYBRIT® technology, which is the first fossil-free (hydrogen based) steelmaking technology in the world with virtually no carbon footprint. Once operational, the plant will be the first commercial-scale facility of its kind. Our team has advised SSAB in e.g. the negotiation of an EPCM contract for the project as lead counsel.

Hannes Snellman's core team comprises Katja Perätalo, Emmi Nuutila, Linda Härkönen, Elina Uitto, and Victoria Reiter (Real Assets) and Jesper Nevalainen, Lasse Riski and Simon Mittler (IP & Technology).
