Hexagon Purus Gears Up For Hydrogen Surge By Expanding Business

Hexagon Purus Maritime, a completely owned subsidiary of the Norwegian company. Hexagon Purus, has opened a new facility in Ålesund. In response to the growing demand for innovative hydrogen storage solutions for marine applications. The new premises of the Devold factory in Ålesund include 450 square meters of office space. And 150 square meters of workshop space, with the possibility of future expansion, Hexagon Plus announced.

Morten Holm, his CEO at Hexagon Puras. Said: “As the shipping industry races to decarbonize, we expect demand for hydrogen fuel systems to increase. Compressed hydrogen is the natural choice to achieve zero emissions in transport where batteries are no longer sufficient. This is especially true for vessels with short and predictable routes. Such as passenger ferries, inland or coastal cargo ships, supply and service vessels for offshore wind farms, and aquaculture vessels.
