Hexagon Purus Maritime receives purchase order for hydrogen fuel storage system from Hvide Sande Shipyard in Denmark


Hexagon Purus Maritime, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hexagon Purus, has received a purchase order for a hydrogen fuel storage system from Hvide Sande Shipyard, a Danish shipyard building and servicing a wide range of vessel types.

Hexagon Purus Maritime’s hydrogen fuel storage system incorporating type 4 hydrogen cylinders will be used as fuel storage onboard the training ship SKULEBAS (pictured). The training ship is owned by Vestland County in Norway and operated by Maaløy Upper Secondary School to educate future mariners in Norway.

“Hvide Sande Shipyard is proud of being part of Vestland County’s hydrogen project. This project fits perfectly with our vision of being a leading provider of zero-emission technology for the maritime industry, with our previous experience from both battery and methanol technology, says Mike Bylov Torsland, Senior Project Manager in Hvide Sande Shipyard. “We look forward to cooperating with Hexagon Purus on this ambitious hydrogen project.”

“Hexagon Purus is at the forefront of developing innovative hydrogen storage solutions for the maritime industry. We are thrilled to deliver our zero-emission onboard storage technology to educate the future officers and sailors of the Norwegian maritime industry”, says Robert Haugen, Managing Director of Hexagon Purus Maritime.

“We continue to see strong interest in our hydrogen storage technology as the maritime sector accelerates its decarbonization efforts. This order further validates our strong market position as an early-mover in zero-emission technology for the maritime industry.”

Delivery of the hydrogen fuel storage system is scheduled for Q2 2024.
