Hexagon Purus announced its intention to deliver zero-emission hydrogen technology to the maritime industry, with a particular emphasis on Norway.
Hexagon Purus Marine was founded to accomplish this goal, and the business is aggressively recruiting from the maritime and hydrogen industries to grow its maritime workforce.
Although the business has global ambitions, Norway will be the initial focus due to the country’s strong maritime technology industries.
Hexagon Purus has expanded into the Norwegian marine industry in response to increased national demand for zero-emission vessels along the Norwegian coast, which was announced earlier this month with the launch of the Norwegian Hydrogen roadmap.
The Norwegian government has committed to the establishment of hydrogen hubs in the region and to the development of zero-emission vessels that are both competitive and safe for shipping in Norwegian seas.
These agreements, when paired with the Norwegian Parliament’s 2026 objective of making Norway’s UNESCO World Heritage Fjords one of the world’s first zero-emission zones at sea, constitute a tremendous opportunity.
Hexagon Purus’ hydrogen storage and distribution business is well positioned to support the ambitious energy change underway in the national marine sector, with the potential to establish the group as a global leader in integrated products for the burgeoning maritime hydrogen market.
Morten Holum, CEO of Hexagon Purus, said, “We are passionate about unlocking the potential of zero emission solutions to save our fragile ecosystems and to realise our vision of clean air everywhere.
“Our efforts to bring emission-free solutions to Norwegian waterways is a great opportunity for us to make a difference and can serve as a display window for the rest of the world. Technology is no longer a barrier to zero-emission mobility. We see a strong momentum for green energy and clean transportation across the world, Norway included – and we believe that progress cant wait.”
Jørn Helge Dahl, Board member of Hexagon Purus Maritime, said, “To meet the demand for zero-emission transport at sea, ship designers are requesting more focused, technical advice and more integrated solutions onboard the ship. At Hexagon Purus, we combine maritime experience with extensive hydrogen storage expertise to provide a holistic approach to solutions – both onboard the ship and at the port. Hexagon Purus’ systems solutions for distribution and onboard hydrogen fuel systems will together with partners cover major parts of the maritime hydrogen value chain.”
