Hexagon Purus Maritime, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hexagon Purus, has received a purchase order for a hydrogen fuel storage system from Moen Marin, the world’s largest supplier of working boats to the aquaculture industry.
Hexagon Purus Maritime’s hydrogen fuel storage system with type 4 hydrogen cylinders will be used for fuel storage onboard a zero-emission working boat for the aquaculture industry in Norway. Already a development partner in Moen Marin’s “Pilot-E” zero-emission working boat program, Hexagon Purus Maritime will continue working on the development and testing, with final system delivery scheduled by the end of 2023. The value of the order is approximately EUR 200,000 (approx. NOK 2.0 million).
“Moen Marin is committed to actively lead the way in developing zero-emission alternatives for fisheries and aquaculture companies operating globally. Supporting the global response to the threat of climate change this is an important project and a long-term initiative for us”, says Mariell Ulla Toven, Chief Business Development Officer in Moen Marin. “Hexagon Purus Maritime delivers strong technical capabilities, and we are happy to further develop our strong cooperation and long-term relationship for the benefit of the maritime industry and global environment”.
“We believe that the maritime industry, both in Norway and globally, offers great potential for increased hydrogen adoption, especially for applications requiring short and predictable working patterns close to the shore”, says Robert Haugen, Managing Director of Hexagon Purus Maritime. “This order represents an important commercial milestone as the first order for our maritime hydrogen fuel system, and we look forward to continue the cooperation with Moen Marin”.
Delivery of the maritime fuel system is scheduled for Q4 2023.
