Norway to build hydrogen production facility to support marine transportation

A new hydrogen production facility will be built in Geirangerfjord, Norway, to deliver hydrogen to ferries and cruise ships in the region.

The facility will be constructed by Hellesylt Hydrogen Hub, a consortium of leading players in the hydrogen field, following a NOK 37.6m (€3.6m) grant from the PILOT-E funding scheme.
