H2Carrier, the designer and owner of proprietary floating energy production and storage system P2XFloater, has become a member of the Ocean Hyway Cluster, which is a Norwegian network for hydrogen-based solutions for the maritime sector.
The cluster says it is making green waves, working closely with the industry to exploit the commercial opportunities of new hydrogen technology solutions to make Norway a global leading hydrogen player. Sharing knowledge about markets, players and technology will give cluster participants new insights, and the collaboration across sectors and businesses is expected to break down barriers and stimulate innovation.
Sebastian Kihle, CTO H2Carrier said: “We became a part of the cluster to get more involved in Ocean Hyway Cluster’s activities and to receive more information about what is happening within the hydrogen sector. Additionally, we want to utilise the membership benefits such as project support and introduction to potential partners.”
As well as a recent agreement with Indian company Larsen & Toubro to develop and build the first P2XFloater vessel, H2Carrier earlier signed a Letter of Intent with Greenland based company Anori with the purpose of developing the first commercial wind farm in Greenland with subsequent production and export of green ammonia. The wind farm is projected to comprise 1.5GW renewable energy which will supply power to H2Carrier’s P2XFloater vessel for hydrogen and green ammonia. Green ammonia will be stored in tanks onboard the vessel, then exported to smaller vessels and carried to the international market for ammonia. This large project is expected to enable Greenland to play a key role within global decarbonisation.
