Nuvera Fuel Cells, LLC has signed a formal technology development agreement with HELINOR Energy, a Norwegian scale up technology and production provider of hydrogen fuel cell and fire suppression modules.
Under the agreement, HELINOR will fund the development of scalable marine power solutions incorporating Nuvera’s next-generation high-power fuel cell engine technology with HELINOR’s expertise in the maritime industry.
Nuvera® E-Series Fuel Cell Engines enable vessel and maritime equipment manufacturers to meet increasingly stringent emissions mandates.
Nuvera’s engines are designed to help customers with regulatory compliance, and to maintain economic competitiveness by providing high-performance power solutions.
Kedar Murthy, Chief Commercial Officer at Nuvera Fuel Cells, said; “The rapidly growing demand for zero-emission solutions for shipping has created opportunities and a platform for hydrogen fuel cell power solutions to address environmental concerns and showcase their efficiency and reliability advantages.
“We are excited to strengthen Nuvera’s foothold in the maritime industry, and we look forward to working alongside HELINOR to support the decarbonization of sea-going transportation.”
Elling Helvig, Chairman of HELINOR, added; “In response to the International Maritime Organization’s strategy to achieve its target for net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, HELINOR is committed to expediting the transition to zero-carbon shipping by offering compact, lightweight, and powerful fuel cell modules, and to setting new standards in safety at sea.
“Nuvera’s high-efficiency fuel cell engines are the ideal solution because their high-power density makes optimal use of limited on-board space, and their demonstrated high-efficiency performance affords longer range and lower operating costs.”
