PowerCell Sweden AB has decided to establish a local presence in the Norwegian market.
“As a market, Norway is a clear leader in the use of hydrogen electrification, pursuing the establishment of infrastructure and a value chain, thereby providing excellent possibilities for creating commercially enduring business opportunities for our customers.”PowerCell Sweden AB’s CEO Richard Berkling, justifying the initiative.
PowerCell Sweden AB will assess the requirements for local settlement and will include more comprehensive details on the types of establishment in the second quarter. During this time, the company will begin the search for a senior sales manager with extensive knowledge of the local market.
Norway has several major hydrogen players, and PowerCell Sweden signed a memorandum of understanding with Statkraft, a Norwegian group, in December last year to collaborate on energy solutions based on hydrogen and fuel cells.
In recent years, Norway has imposed stricter carbon dioxide and toxic particle emissions standards for building equipment, construction sites, and coastal shipping, sparking considerable interest in hydrogen-based zero-emissions solutions.
