Hexagon Purus Maritime to build full-scale model of maritime hydrogen fuel system

Hexagon Purus Maritime, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hexagon Purus, has been granted support from Innovation Norway to build a full-scale model of a maritime hydrogen fuel system, the first of its kind in Norway, in Langevågen, close to Ålesund.

Innovation Norway supports companies in developing their competitive advantage and to enhance innovation. The demo model will showcase solutions available for zero emission shipping.

The full-scale model will include a fuel system with four type 4 hydrogen cylinders, structure, fueling nozzle and a piping and control system. The demo model will be used for training with operators and engineering students in a safe environment.

The model is developed by combining the maritime expertise of Hexagon Purus Maritime’s own engineers with the tried and tested hydrogen fuel systems made by Hexagon Purus that are in operation on a wide variety of mobility applications across the world today, such as buses and heavy-duty trucks.

“We are proud to see that Innovation Norway recognises the potential in both Hexagon Purus Maritime and the role hydrogen can play in decarbonising the maritime industry” said Robert Haugen, Managing Director, Hexagon Purus Maritime.

Located in the maritime cluster in Norway, Hexagon Purus Maritime will establish a Development Centre in Langevågen for the maritime industry, where engineers, ship owners, regulatory bodies and students can meet and learn the functions of a hydrogen fuel system.

“Hydrogen will be an important energy carrier on vessels where the operating profile does not suit batteries” added Magne Aarsnes, Senior Customer Adviser, Innovation Norway. “We are eager to support players who are demonstrating the role hydrogen can play and helping to move the industry forward.”

The project is already well underway, and an official launch of the Development Center and demo model will take place in 2024.
