The Norway-based vessel owner and operator Golden Energy Offshore Services AS and the Norway-based hydrogen company Gen2 Energy AS (Gen2 Energy) to explore the use and availability of hydrogen-based fuel.
The partners have entered a Letter of Intent for mutual exchange of experience and information regarding use of possible hydrogen-based fuel types for various types of vessels in Golden Energy Offshore’s fleet and identification of suitable locations for availability of the alternative hydrogen-based fuel types.
Golden Energy Offshore is actively pursuing environmentally friendly solutions and has a green profile. For over many years the company has been certified in ISO 50001 Energy Management, ISO 9001 Quality Management, ISO 14001 Environmental Management and OHSAS 18001 (ISO 45001) Health and Safety Management.
Gen2 Energy has a clear scope of producing green hydrogen suitable for maritime use, and to be part of a process of establishing the needed bunkering infrastructure for fuelling all type of vessels with green hydrogen. The maritime sector is a growing and promising market for green hydrogen products and Gen2 Energy is well positioned to supply this market with green hydrogen as fuel.
Per Ivar Fagervoll CEO in Golden Energy Offshore, said, “We hope that Golden Energy Offshore and Gen2 Energy together can find zero-emissions solutions that are attractive to our customers and capable of being implemented both on existing vessels in the fleet and newbuilds.”
Jonas Meyer, CEO in Gen2 Energy, said, “We believe hydrogen for maritime application is a fuel for the future, as it can both reduce CO2 emissions significantly and it could be provided at cost competitive levels against fossil-based fuel.”
