Energys and Anlegg Join Forces to Propel Zero Emissions Maritime Solutions in Norway

Amsterdam, Netherlands – June 2024

In an exciting development for the maritime industry, Energys and Anlegg og Marine Service have announced a new partnership at the Electric & Hybrid Marine Conference and Tradeshow this week in Amsterdam.

The agreement is aimed at advancing zero-emission solutions in the Norwegian market. This collaboration formalised through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), designates Anlegg as the distributor, after-purchase service, and support agent for Energys’ cutting-edge hydrogen fuel cell systems in Norway. The partnership harnesses the strengths of both companies to support Norway’s ambitious decarbonisation goals and solidifies Energys’ position in the European maritime sector.

Leveraging Combined Expertise

Energys, an Australian leader in hydrogen technology, brings over a decade of research and development in hydrogen fuel cell systems to this partnership. Their technology promises to revolutionise maritime power with zero emissions, high efficiency, and robust performance. Anlegg, a Norwegian company with over 70 years of experience in supplying and servicing advanced marine equipment, offers an unparalleled depth of local expertise, facilities, and relationships within the Norwegian maritime sector.

Energys: Pioneering Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology

Energys is at the forefront of the transition to renewable hydrogen energy. Their marine fuel cell systems, developed through extensive research and real-world testing, represent a breakthrough in the use of hydrogen as a clean fuel for maritime applications. These systems are designed to replace traditional fossil fuel engines, providing a sustainable and efficient alternative that produces only distilled water vapour as emissions.

Energys offers a versatile range of hydrogen fuel cell systems for various marine applications:

For small to medium vessels: The product line-up includes the 90kW, 135kW, and 270kW Marine Powerhouses. These modular systems are scalable and feature high-efficiency, low-pressure PEM fuel cells. They are ideal for recreational craft, ferries, workboats, and auxiliary power applications.

For medium to large vessels: Energys provides 1MW, 2MW, and 3MW Marine Powerhouses. These systems deliver high power output with exceptional fuel efficiency, suitable for ferries, Ro-Ro ships, tugs, and large ocean vessels. Each system is designed to meet stringent safety standards, with advanced features such as low-pressure operation, comprehensive safety enclosures, and SCADA-based control interfaces.
