A one-stop-shop company dedicated to offering renewable hydrogen (H2) solutions has been launched.

Hyon AS, a joint venture (JV), owned by Nel ASA, Hexagon Composites ASA and PowerCell Sweden AB, offers integrated solutions for the complete H2 value chain from production, storage and distribution, to fuel cell technology that supplies electricity without any other emission than heat and water. It was established on 20th April 2017.

Newly appointed Managing Director of Hyon, Tomas Tronstad, said, “The Scandinavian market is ready for H2 and fuel cell technology, especially the martime industry from which we have already received a number of project requests.”

In addition to Tronstad, Hyon has also recruited Arild Eiken as Marine Technology Director.

“Hyon’s solutions will be interesting for several maritime segments, as examples; cruise, offshore and ferry companies requiring clean renewable energy and silent power generation,” explained Eiken.

Although Hyon has only recently been launched, the two employees have extensive experience from offshore technology, classification societies and ship design.

Hyon’s Chairman, Bjørn Simonsen, said the company is very excited to have Tronstad and Eiken onboard, adding, “With their experience, we offer strong competence and know-how in addition to our products.”
