In Norway, a consortium led by Bergen-based power generator BKK, state-owned energy corporation Equinor, industrial gas supplier Air Liquide, along with a few major Norwegian Ferry operators, have been awarded a government grant totaling $3.8 million towards the development of liquid hydrogen fuel supply chain in Norway for marine applications. The aim of the project is to create a full-scale, reliable national hydrogen infrastructure to support the decarbonization strategy for the Norwegian maritime transport sector. The consortium’s goal is to kick-start the local market by delivering liquid hydrogen produced through electrolysis. The participants in the initiative intend on having liquid hydrogen available for commercial shipping within the first quarter of 2024.
