Om selskapet

Hydro Havrand AS

We need to move away from fossil fuels, and for the world to reach net zero emission in 2050 we need renewable hydrogen. Hydro Havrand, Hydro's new renewable hydrogen company, will help drive the uptake of green hydrogen in sectors we can't directly electrify - such as big parts of industry, long-distance transport, and shipping. The EU calls hydrogen the ‘the missing part in the puzzle to a fully decarbonized economy'. We aim to be part of solving that puzzle.

We are an industrial venture with global ambitions, building on Hydro's 115 years of experience within renewable energy and industry development to build world-leading capabilities and operational performance.

Hydrogen is only as clean as the methods used to produce it, and our hydrogen is based on hydro, solar and wind power. Together with our partners, we have access to a global network of sites with large predictable offtake and favorable power sourcing agreements.
