“We can only succeed in partnership with companies that bring together some of the globe’s finest expertise in design, approval, building, financing and operation of innovative vessels", says Torben Carlsen, CEO of DFDS.

Dermed var nok DFDS pent nødt å velge den globale markedslederen og Norges stolthet innen fremtidsrettet hydrogenteknoligi Hexagon Purus. Noe selv de største skeptikere (til hydrogen generelt og Hexagon Purus spesielt) kanskje bør bite seg merke i?

Her er en oppdatering om kvantespranget av et gigantprosjektet som skal unnfange "Europa Seaways".


Ferry order book: Building towards a greener ferry fleet

Ferry operators move forward with plans for environmentally friendly ferries as shipyards continue to make progress on building projects despite the pandemic. Justin Merrigan reports

Not yet an order, but one to watch is the project for a 100 per cent hydrogen-powered DFDS ferry, initially slated for the Oslo-Frederikshavn-Copenhagen route in Scandinavia. A group of companies have partnered up in order to develop the vessel which will be powered by electricity from a hydrogen fuel cell system that emits only water and can produce up to 23 megawatts of power.

“The largest fuel cell systems today produce only one to five megawatts, and the development of such large-scale fuel cell installations for an electric ferry is a monumental task,” says Torben Carlsen, CEO of DFDS. “We can only succeed in partnership with companies that bring together some of the globe’s finest expertise in design, approval, building, financing and operation of innovative vessels.”

In addition to DFDS, the partnership committed to achieving this includes ABB, Ballard Power Systems Europe, Hexagon Purus, Lloyd’s Register, Knud E. Hansen, Ørsted and Danish Ship Finance.

“Together, we expect to be able to make these fuel types and technologies commercially viable, which is key to a transition of the industry to climate neutrality,” says Carlsen. “This is also the ultimate goal of DFDS’s climate action plan.”

The vessel has the working name Europa Seaways and is designed for 1,800 passengers with capacity for 120 trucks or 380 cars. If the project develops as predicted, the ferry could be in full operation on the route as early as 2027.

Vi tar med denne fra Canada i samme slengen, for Canada er virkelig en ledestjerne og pådriver når det gjelder måltettet satsing og strategi med henblikk på reduksjon av klimagassutslipp.

Ikke bare har man en fremoverlent strategi når det gjelder hydrogen, som man kan lese om her. Canada ligger også i front når det gjelder å ta i bruk RNG (fornybar naturgass) som drivstoff og energikilde. Således fremstår Canada som selve drømmelandet såvel for Hexagon Purus som for morselskapet Hexagon Composites.

Skal vi håpe og tro at nabolandet i sør USA ikke vil være dårligere? Blir spennende å se hva Biden og Kerry kommer med når konkrete planer for tiltak der snart blir lagt frem.


Canada’s hydrogen-fuelled future to be supported by newly launched Hydrogen Strategy Steering Committee

By Molly Burgess
on Apr 12, 2021

A Hydrogen Strategy Steering Committee has been launched in Canada to establish priorities, guide actions, share knowledge and track results to deliver on recommendations outlined in the country’s Hydrogen Strategy.

Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, Seamus O’Regan Jr., launched the committee on Friday (9th April) as part of an effort to accelerate the country’s move to net-zero emissions and accelerate a hydrogen economy in the country.

Co-chaired by Natural Resources Canada and the Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association, the committee is comprised on senior leaders from across industry, provincial and territorial partners, non-government organisation and indigenous partners.

It is thought the creation of the Strategic Steering Committee and its inaugural meeting is a key next step to taking action and helps to lay a foundation for success in the short term and identifying activities in the medium and long term to unlock hydrogen’s full potential in 2050.

“Hydrogen’s moment has come. The economic and environmental opportunities for our proud energy workers and communities are real. There is global momentum, and Canada is harnessing it. This is how we get to net zero,” said Minister O’Regan Jr.

Canada’s Hydrogen Strategy supports the government’s strengthened climate plan, A Healthy Environment and a Healthy Economy, which included a federal investment of $1.5bn in a Low-carbon and Zero-Emissions Fuels Fund to increase the production and use of low-carbon fuels, including hydrogen.
