The fish-farming company Nova Sea and the well boat operating company North Salmon Services will collaborate with Gen2 Energy regarding use of green hydrogen as fuel for their ships. The parties have entered a Letter of Intent for exploring different opportunities for zero-emission vessels.
NovaSea is a fully integrated fish-farming company, producing 50 000 tons salmon/year. The company operates some 50 smaller boats and 2 larger well-boats through the well boat operating company North Salmon Service. The ambition is to be carbon free in marine operations by 2050. Nova Sea already has two electric boats and is now considering hydrogen for other ships/boats in the fleet
Gen2 Energy is a Norwegian company dedicated to develop, build, own and operate an integrated value chain for green hydrogen. The company target to have several large-scale production facilities for green hydrogen, making it easy and cost efficient for consumers to adapt green hydrogen.
NovaSea’s intention is to use green hydrogen as fuel for its ships, both considering hydrogen combustion and fuel cell-based electric propulsion.
– “We want to work to ensure that all future investments in wellboat’s use sustainable propulsion solutions“. says Stian Amble, Head of feed and sustainability in Nova Sea.
Gen2 Energy’s intension is to produce and deliver hydrogen for use as fuel for ships operated by NovaSea and North Salmon Services.
– “We are pleased to sign this agreement with Nova Sea, as Gen2 Energy continue to focus on green hydrogen in maritime applications. To work with our neighbor company in Sandnessjøen, and potentially use hydrogen to reduce CO2 emissions in vessels operating along the Norwegian coastline in one of our largest industries is highly exciting”, says Jonas Meyer, CEO in Gen2 Energy.
The parties will explore different opportunities within the collaboration, as potential rebuilds of existing well boats and smaller work vessels and/or new-builds. The bunkering port is planned to be in Sandnessjøen.
