In Norway, H2Carrier AS, the Power-to-X developer, designer, and owner of the proprietary floating energy production and storage system "P2XFloater" has announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with compatriot power major Statkraft ASA regarding a study for the possible use of H2Carrier’s unique green ammonia floating production vessel on certain offshore wind locations.

The P2XFloater will utilize renewable power to produce green hydrogen and green ammonia which in turn can be shipped to the international markets.

H2Carrier recently received Approval in Principle (AiP) from DNV for the use of the P2XFloater for near-shore production.

Market demand for green ammonia is rapidly increasing due to the decarbonization of the industrial and maritime sectors. The P2XFloater concept provides a low-cost, fast-track, and flexible solution to produce green ammonia on an industrial scale and at a competitive price, said Mårten Lunde, CEO of H2Carrier.

Evaluate a true offshore environment

The purpose of this new study is to evaluate the use of the P2XFloater in a true offshore environment.

The P2XFloater will contribute to improving the power flexibility of an offshore wind installation and make an offshore wind farm less dependent on grid and export cable facilities.

The study will assess the challenges of operating electrolyzers and an ammonia production process offshore with variable load handling.

Partner with KANFA

H2Carrier will conduct the study together with the Norwegian engineering company KANFA who, together with its parent company Technip Energies, has extensive experience in the offshore production and installation industry.

We are very pleased to cooperate with Statkraft and KANFA to assess the impact of operating our P2XFloater in a true offshore environment. While we so far have focused on nearshore operations, we are convinced that the P2XFloater will play an important role in the commercialization of offshore wind resources, ended Mårten Lunde.
