(Oslo, Norway, 14 October 2022) Hexagon Purus ASA (“Hexagon Purus”), through its wholly owned subsidiary Wystrach GmbH, a leading hydrogen systems supplier, has secured a framework agreement for delivery of hydrogen distribution systems to a leading European producer of green hydrogen.

Driving Energy Transformation
“We are currently experiencing strong commercial momentum within our hydrogen distribution business following the recent push from European authorities to reduce emissions and increase energy security”, says Michael Kleschinski, EVP of Hexagon Purus. “We are very happy to play an important part in supporting European authorities’ ambitious growth plan for hydrogen adoption”.
About the market
The industrial and mobility sectors are accountable for close to 50% of annual carbon emissions globally, and hydrogen has a significant role to play in reducing these emissions, particularly in “hard to abate” sectors. Making green hydrogen available for use in industrial processes and mobility is critical to reduce carbon emissions.
As hydrogen, a key contributor to the energy transition, continues to build momentum globally, more than 30 countries have released hydrogen roadmaps, over USD 70 billion in government funding is committed to hydrogen investments, more than 500 large-scale hydrogen projects have been announced by the industry to date and green hydrogen is projected to supply up to 25% of the world's energy needs by 2050.
Delivery of the hydrogen systems is scheduled from Q4 2022 to Q4 2023.
