Havyard, a Norwegian ship technology company, is taking the next step towards a hydrogen system pilot for large ships. The company is entering the approval phase and has signed agreements with providers of hydrogen tanks and fuel cells.

If large vessels are to sail zero-emission at high speed over long distances, battery solutions do not contain enough energy. Fuel cells running on hydrogen is a solution to this, and the Havyard Group, with Havyard Design & Solutions and Norwegian Electric Systems, is now conducting pioneering work on the development of a system that will become the biggest of its kind for ships.

The first phase of the Havyard Group’s ground-breaking work is completed, and the company is now entering into the approval stage for the hydrogen system together with Linde Engineering as tank supplier and PowerCell Sweden AB as the supplier of fuel cells.
