FORNEBU, Norway — H2Carrier AS and Statkraft have entered into a memorandum of understanding regarding a study for the possible use of H2Carrier’s green ammonia floating production vessel, the P2XFloater, 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 an Approval in Principle (AiP) from DNV for the use of the P2XFloater for nearshore production. The purpose of this new study is to evaluate the use of the P2XFloater in a true offshore environment.
The vessel will contribute to improve the power flexibility of an offshore wind installation and make an offshore wind farm less dependent on grid and export cable facilities, the company said. The study will assess the challenges of operating electrolyzers and an ammonia production process offshore with variable load handling.
H2Carrier will conduct the study together with the Norwegian engineering company KANFA, which together with its’ parent company Technip Energies has extensive experience from the offshore production and installation industry.
