- The partnership will use the strengths of both companies to produce and deploy 100 percent carbon-free green hydrogen in the Norwegian market.
Bergen, Norway–Greenstat, one of the frontrunners in Norwegian hydrogen and Hy2gen Norge AS, a subsidiary of green hydrogen company Hy2gen AG, announced today their intention to create a joint venture that will develop projects related to green hydrogen production all over Norway.
Working together, Hy2gen and Greenstat shall increase momentum to develop commercial green hydrogen production in Norway. Greenstat and Hy2gen shall develop local value by using Norway´s existing resources of green power from renewable energy resources to develop the Norwegian hydrogen industry and infrastructure. The common understanding of the significant role hydrogen will have in the shaping of a carbon-free society from circular economies, drives the partners to take the ideas forward by developing production and use of hydrogen in the Norwegian society.
The partnership has a goal of a minimum of 100 MW installed electrolyzer capacity by 2025. This will lead to a yearly production of approximately 15 000 tons of hydrogen that will secure a stable supply of green hydrogen to the growing hydrogen market within transport, heavy-duty vehicles, maritime and industry.
Norway has one of the best pre-requisites worldwide to be the landmark region for the energy transition to meet the emission reduction targets. The parties recognize that the current market situation requires collaborative efforts and that partnerships will strengthen the basis for the development of green projects. Greenstat and Hy2gen have developed significant separate opportunities for green hydrogen production and worked in parallel as competitors to develop green hydrogen production. However, both companies agree that the current market requires companies to establish strong partnerships in which all involved benefit from earlier development of next-generation green hydrogen facilities in Norway.
