In the first quarter of 2021, Hexagon Purus Group generated NOK 57 (48) million in revenue and recorded operating profit before depreciation (EBITDA) of NOK -62 (-43) million. Revenue growth was driven by increased activity in hydrogen distribution applications as well as aerospace with slightly lower revenue contribution from heavy duty vehicle applications due to the completion of a battery electric (BEV) truck demonstration program in Q1 2020.

Continued investments in personnel and infrastructure to support and accelerate Hexagon Purus’ future growth drive negative profitability.
