H2Carrier joins Ocean Hyway Cluster
Norway’s network for hydrogen-based solutions for the maritime sector Ocean Hyway Cluster has welcomed H2Carrier AS, the designer and owner of the proprietary floating energy production and storage system P2XFloater™, to its cluster.
During the chat with the Cluster, Sebastian Kihle, Chief Technology Officer of H2 Carrier, said that the company 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.”
He continued: “Additionally, we want to utilise the membership benefits such as project support and introduction to potential partners.”
Kihle revealed that H2Carrier’s focus is project development and maturing their current projects.
“We are identifying sites with good renewable energy resources at a low cost for projects for our P2XFloater™. We are currently working on more than 10 projects, mainly in Northern Europe and Greenland.”
H2Carrier’s innovative P2XFloater™ design enables off-grid production and thus enables remote renewable energy resources to be realised through the production and storing of hydrogen and green ammonia with further transportation to the consumer markets.
One of H2Carrier’s significant projects is the development of the first commercial wind farm in Greenland with subsequent production and export of green ammonia.
The company has signed a LoI with the Greenland-based company Anori to cooperate on that project.
The wind farm is projected to comprise 1.5 GW of renewable energy which is expected to supply power to H2Carrier’s P2XFloater™.
According to H2Carrier, green ammonia will be stored in tanks onboard the vessel, then exported to smaller shipping vessels and carried to the international market for ammonia.
The company has signed deals with other companies as well, including signing a MoU with Larsen & Toubru (L&T) for the topside engineering and construction of the green ammonia plant for the P2XFloater™.
H2Carrier said it plans to build the P2XFloater™ hull at yards in Asia while L&T will design and fabricate the topside process and utility modules for the production of green hydrogen and green ammonia, including the electrolysers, the nitrogen generation plant, and ammonia synthesis. To note, installation and integration of the topsides modules into the hull can be customised as per location preferences.
