HAV Hydrogen obtains DNV approval for containerised hydrogen system

HAV Hydrogen has received Approval in Principle (AiP) from DNV for its containerised hydrogen system for ships.

HAV Hydrogen – a subsidiary of HAV Group ASA – will start manufacturing the Zero Emission PodH2 containers during the second half of 2023, aiming for first deliveries in 2024.

Kristian Osnes, Managing Director of HAV Hydrogen, said the AiP is based on a 20-foot container that not only contains hydrogen fuel cells, but also equipment required to safely run it, including ventilation, cooling, safety systems, control system, DC/DC drives, fuel distribution system and other technical installations.

By using 200kW hydrogen fuel cells, the system is flexible and can provide 1,000kW within the footprint of a standard 20-foot container. By combining multiple containers, using larger modules or dedicated space below deck, multi megawatt energy systems will also be available.
