Hexagon Purus Maritime, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hexagon Purus, is moving to new premises in Ålesund in line with increasing demand for innovative hydrogen storage solutions for maritime applications. Hexagon Purus Maritime is at the forefront of developing complete hydrogen fuel systems on board vessels, based on its innovative Type 4 high-pressure cylinders.

"We expect that the demand for hydrogen fuel systems will increase in line with the race to decarbonize the shipping industry. Compressed hydrogen is the natural choice for zero emissions in shipping where batteries are no longer sufficient. This applies especially to vessels with short and predictable routes, for example, passenger ferries, inland or coastal cargo vessels, supply and service vessels for offshore wind farms, as well as fish farming", says Morten Holum, CEO of Hexagon Purus.

The new premises at the Devold factory in Ålesund consists of 450 square meters of office space in addition to a 150 square meter workshop, with the possibility of expansion in the future. Hexagon Purus Maritime now has 9 employees.

Hexagon Purus Maritime is currently building hydrogen fuel systems for the training vessel SKULEBAS for Hvide Sande Shipyard and for the world's first hydrogen-powered workboat for fish farming for Moen Marin, the world's largest supplier of workboats to the fish farming industry.

"Hexagon Purus Maritime offers complete hydrogen fuel systems for maritime vessels. The systems are emission-free in operation and thus contribute to the fight against climate change. The Devold factory’s historical connection to green energy and winding technology harmonizes well with our commitment to sustainability and innovation", says Robert Haugen, Managing Director of Hexagon Purus Maritime.

Over the past twelve months, Hexagon Purus has opened new production facilities for hydrogen storage systems in Weeze (Germany), hydrogen cylinders in Kassel (Germany), battery systems in Kelowna (Canada) and hydrogen cylinders in Westminster (Maryland, USA).
