After a 2020 with so many delays due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are happy to report that the hydrogen system (both electrolyser, fuel cell, converters etc.) is on the way to Berlevåg, and is scheduled to arrive on 5 May 2021.
Personnel from Hydrogenics just arrived on site, after a week of quarantine at Oslo airport. From tomorrow, you may peek at the operations from the webcam in Berlevåg’s harbour.
A small and apparently obscure modification to the Norwegian Regulation for Grids and Energy Markets has just been announced by the Norwegian Government. As it happens, it may have a major impact on Haeolus and similar projects.
The “Triple Alliance” of EU Interreg projects HUGE, SEAFUEL and GenComm is holding a seminar this Thursday, 18th February 2021, 11:00-13:00 CET, on zero-emission mobility for coastal communities. Program and registration at this link, online, free attendance.
Safety is of paramount importance, also in environmentally friendly energy sources and carriers. The Fuel Cells & Hydrogen Joint Undertaking organised in November 2020 a workshop on safety in electrolysis, and all presentations are now available online.
On November 5, 2020, one more piece of the puzzle fell into place: the pressurised buffer tank for the electrolyser was delivered to Berlevåg!
Haeolus will be strongly represented at the upcoming Next Generation Electrolysers conference on 8-9 December 2020. The conference has an industrial focus and it’s the place you want to be if your company wants a piece of the action in large-scale hydrogen production.
Everybody’s life has been turned upside down this year, and Haeolus has not been an exception. Whereas work still proceeds for most aspects, some critical activities have been delayed significantly. So, when is hydrogen coming to Finnmark?
Haeolus partner Varanger Kraft has recently released to the press their long-term plans for exploitation of the hydrogen that can be produced in Berlevåg from wind-generated hydrogen.
The HAEOLUS project is pleased to inform you that the new building welcoming the full system is now finalized. All the details are given in the deliverable D7.2 authored by Christian Bue (Varanger Kraft).
