HYON AS (HYON) has signed a contract with Norwegian Hydrogen AS for the delivery of a mobile hydrogen refueler for both maritime and land-based applications.
The project is an important step in HYON’s technological development roadmap.
The refueler will initially be used to distribute the hydrogen produced at Norwegian Hydrogen’s plant in Hellesylt. Mobility is vital to support a range of customers in their initial hydrogen pilots. The refueler will be delivered to Norwegian Hydrogen in the third quarter of 2023.
“We are proud to get this opportunity. It gives us important hands-on experience and is a crucial first step toward our mission. We are impressed by the leadership demonstrated by Norwegian Hydrogen, and look forward to further developing our strong partnership,” says Jørn K. Lindtvedt.
The contract is an important step in HYON’s technological development roadmap toward a full range of fueling products for maritime users. The contract will allow the company’s technical team to gain valuable experience in the construction, testing and qualification of hydrogen fueling solutions.
“The HYON Mobile refueler enables us to offer hydrogen to most hydrogen applications in an easy and affordable way for pilots and demonstrations. For Norwegian Hydrogen, this is a good solution to complement our network of full-scale refueling stations for the maritime sector and heavy-duty trucks. The roll-out of larger full-scale stations is, however, dependent on government support. We hope Norwegian authorities will follow the Swedish and set up a dedicated program covering the support needed for a nationwide network,” says Per Øyvind Voie.
The agreement is based on a principle where Norwegian Hydrogen partly covers HYON’s related development costs. The financial terms in the contract reflect that this is a joint effort to prepare for more extensive commercial deliveries.
