Fredrik Mowill’s entry to the electrolyser game with Hystar was one of not only savvy investment decision, but also out of passion. Having been at the helm of the Netherlands-based Opra Turbines alongside his family, he oversaw the development of a new, efficient, low-emission, multi-fuel turbine technology.
