Vistin Pharma ASA (Vistin Pharma, OSE: VISTIN) announces that it has entered into a long-term industrial energy agreement with Statkraft, the leading Norwegian energy supplier. The agreement will secure a significant part of Vistin’s electricity demand on competitive terms until 2032. The agreement includes Guarantees of Origin as certification of the renewable energy supply, and starts 1.1.2023.
