GenH2, a leading U.S. provider of hydrogen infrastructure solutions, announced on 14 February a partnership with Norwegian-based HYDS to produce green liquid hydrogen in Norway and the Nordic region. These solutions, based on GenH2’s integrated hydrogen liquefaction and storage systems, will be available through Liquiline.
This collaboration signals an important step towards HYDS’ vision of zero-emission hydrogen solutions for maritime transport, with liquid hydrogen proving a much better option than compressed hydrogen.
“We are thrilled to work with HYDS and their subsidiary Liquiline to provide local hydrogen liquefaction and storage in Norway”, said Greg Gosnell, President & CEO of GenH2. “The capability to liquefy and store hydrogen locally reduces costs and risks associated with the liquid hydrogen supply chain. The partnership with HYDS opens the Nordic market for us and creates an opportunity to accelerate the transition to clean energy in Scandinavia”.
GenH2 specializes in equipment required for a low-carbon energy economy. Its technology allows for safe liquefaction, storage, and distribution of hydrogen onsite. HYDS is an important contributor to the Norwegian hydrogen industry, delivering commercially available, scalable green hydrogen and derivatives.
“Solutions for local production of liquid green hydrogen have not been commercially available in the market, and the fully integrated solutions from GenH2 represent a major game changer making liquid green hydrogen available in the market. Especially within the maritime segment this has been a missing link. HYDS explored multiple solutions for hydrogen storage and chose GenH2’s modular technology for its ability to scale, integration possibilities with other technologies, safety and easy to operate”, said Thor Henrik W. Hagen, CEO of HYDS.
