Press release from Gen2 Energy
Gen2 Energy has now received a general building permit for the hydrogen plant in Mosjøen and for the associated administrative building. Vefsn municipality, which has processed the application, has approved Gen2 Energy’s plans for the green hydrogen production facility and the administrative building.
The building permit recently granted to Gen2 Energy now opens up opportunities to proceed with the realization of the large-scale green hydrogen plant in Mosjøen. The building permit for the green hydrogen production facility in Mosjøen is groundbreaking for the hydrogen sector’s development in Norway. It is the largest hydrogen plant to have received a general building permit in Norway so far. The facility will have a production capacity of approximately 42 tons of green hydrogen per day.
Before actual construction can commence, Vefsn municipality must issue project start-up permissions for the various parts of the facility. Gen2 Energy is well underway in preparing the groundwork for the necessary project start-up permissions. The hydrogen plant will be a modern and environmentally friendly industrial facility. Safety has been carefully considered, and there is currently also an application to the DSB (Directorate for Civil Protection) for approval of the facility in accordance with the Major Accident Regulations.
The entire process of the building permit application has worked very well. The dialogue with the municipality’s administration beforehand and the processing of the application in the municipality’s building applications department have been orderly and efficient.
Neighbors and other affected authorities have had few comments to the plans for the hydrogen facility. The comments and questions directed towards the building application have been taken seriously and handled in a responsible manner. The facility, as it will appear, has been well-received by the local community in Mosjøen.
Lars Grimsmo, EVP for Project Development at Gen2 Energy, says:
“The building permit application is a significant step towards the investment decision to commence construction of the facility. Together with our partners, we have put in significant effort in developing and planning the plant, including hydrogen production, transport and logistics solutions, and of course, safety covering all aspects of the production and transport of green hydrogen.”
Svein-Erik Figved, Head of Public Affairs at Gen2 Energy, says:
“A new milestone in our steady work towards realizing the large-volume green hydrogen production facility has been reached. The hydrogen plant will be a forward-looking and modern industrial facility for the production of green hydrogen, which will be a crucial part of the necessary energy transition. Norway and Europe need more green energy products, and Mosjøen could become a central part of this.”

Press release from Ocean Hyway Cluster
TECO 2030 and Pherousa Green Shipping AS (PGS) sign green package supply agreement for up to six modern, zero-emission Ultramax dry bulk carriers of about 63.000 deadweight tons each. Each vessel will be equipped with 12 megawatts (MW) of TECO 2030 fuel cells for main propulsion onboard.
The TECO 2030 delivery scope is a green package approx. worth EUR 23 million per vessel. The delivery for TECO 2030 includes a complete system of fuel cells installed on a skid solution as well as power and automation equipment and is estimated to start shipment to shipyard by early-2026, with delivery in mid-2026. The fuel cell system will go into production at our Innovation Center in Narvik, Norway at the end of 2024.
“We are proud to sign a firm supply agreement for six vessels with Pherousa Green Shipping, they are a young forward-thinking shipowner who wants to realize zero emissions deep-sea shipping. Pherousa is an exciting company, with a clear vision of proving that hydrogen and ammonia can be utilized to fuel tomorrow’s deep-sea vessels,” said an enthusiastic Tore Enger, Group CEO TECO 2030.
A 12 MW fuel cell system will be utilized for full propulsion onboard each of the six vessels, enabling 100% emission-free operations. Each vessel will be about 63,000-deadweight tons and the first vessel is targeted for delivery Q1 2027.
The article will continue below.
Fuel cell and cracker combo
The TECO 2030 fuel cell system will be installed in combination with a Pherousa Green Technologies AS’ (PGT) ammonia to hydrogen cracker. Bunkering ammonia and cracking to hydrogen on board the vessel will solve the present storage and infrastructure challenges of hydrogen as a marine fuel and thus paving the way for zero emission deep-sea shipping.
Opting for hydrogen fuel cells in combination with an ammonia cracker allows shipowners to commence with ammonia and transition to hydrogen whenever desired, minimizing the investment risks. This approach does not only position ammonia as a viable hydrogen carrier but also enables its economic trade as a preferred fuel in shipping and complementing its traditional role in the chemical and fertilizer sector.
Truly Zero Emission by Choice
The total supply agreement is subject to financing of PGS’ newbuild vessels and reaching a final contract of supply including closing price negotiations according to industry standards.
”We are excited to team up with TECO 2030 and incorporate their Fuel Cell solution together with our own Cracking technology, permitting the Pherousa newbuildings to be the first ever fully electric deep-sea vessels on water” said Hans Bredrup, Chairman of the Pherousa group. He further commented: “The technology combination between TECO 2030 and Pherousa doesn’t only reduce the ammonia consumption versus the ammonia fueled Internal Combustion Engines currently being developed, it also avoids burning Ammonia together with Carbon based pilot fuels” and adds: “Truly Zero Emission by Choice”.

Press release from KSAT
KSAT is implementing the first integrated satellite tasking, data reception and processing platform for near real time delivery of advanced ship detection services.
WSBW, Paris: Multi mission satellite-based ship detection is an important tool for maritime situational awareness. Focus has been on minimizing the time from data acquisition till service delivery. The service is currently available in less than 10 minutes after the data is received on ground. However, the key challenge lies in combining satellite tasking, operation and mission control with data reception and product deliveries.
KSAT has therefore designed and is implementing a multi mission, software-platform optimizing and streamlining the workflow from satellite operation to information delivery.
The Platform will allow NRT operation and intelligent data fusion. Initially this platform will be used for the Norwegian MicroSAR project, but it is generically designed to support all the upcoming Norwegian satellites as well as other missions. The ground segment is based on the standard KSATlite ground station as a service concept with more than 80 antennas worldwide.
MicroSAR is a highly specialized small SAR imaging satellite especially designed for ship detection. It’s C-band radar has unique characteristics allowing detection of small vessels with unprecedented resolution in a wide swath. The design allows 3m resolution in a 300km Swath.
With a 10% duty cycle per orbit, large ocean areas can be covered daily. The satellite also operates an AIS sensor. The simultaneously collected AIS and SAR data represents unique data for vessel detection. The satellite will also carry a specially designed down link radio allowing 10 GB/s dual polarization down link in Ka-band.
KSAT is currently delivering ship and oil spill detection in near real time to a variety of international customers including the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA).
– Improving the resolution and timeliness of our ship detection services has been a goal for KSAT for years, says Rolf Skatteboe KSAT President and CEO. The integrated ground segment will allow even faster and more reliable operation for maritime surveillance satellites. The system is flexible and additional sources of information, i.e., RF data is implemented, he states.

Venture capital firm Antler announced yesterday, that it had launched its second Nordic fund, with a total target size of €150 million. According to the firm, €50 million had already been raised in the first closing.
The fund will back founders across the Scandinavian countries Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland, with the firm set to open its new Helsinki office in 2024.
“Five years after Antler’s first investments in the Nordics, the launch of our second fund demonstrates our commitment to continue supporting a new generation of founders in the region,” Antler partner Kristian Jul Røsjø said in a press release.
According to the publication EU-Startups, Antler has made 102 investments in 2022 alone and has emerged as one of the most active early-stage venture capital firms in Europe. Its current European portfolio includes more than 300 startups across a wide range of sectors.
In an interview with EU-Startups, Jul Røsjø said that the launch of the new fund showcased Antler’s unwavering commitment to the startup community in the Nordics.
“Five years after Antler’s first investments in the Nordics, the launch of our second fund demonstrates our commitment to continue supporting a new generation of founders in the region. The high number of investors from Fund I re-committing to our second Fund is testament to the potential of our investment strategy and the success of our portfolio companies,” said Jul Røsjø.
The firm’s Nordic portfolio now has a combined value of nearly half a billion dollars, with around 40% of the startups backed by Antler classified as ‘planet positive’. The new fund will continue this direction by investing in startups that are developing technologies aimed at having a positive societal or environmental impact.

OSLO (Reuters) – Some 51 employees of oil service group Archer working at Norway’s Ekofisk oilfield plan strike action from Sept. 27 in a bid to support union members locked in conflict with a rival company, the Industri Energi labour union said on Wednesday.
The planned strike action comes in response to an ongoing labour conflict at SLB UK, where a group of Industri Energi members have been on strike since March in a bid to secure a collective bargaining agreement, the union said.
If it goes ahead, the strike action at Archer will halt maintenance work at Ekofisk wells and also impact so-called well stimulation work at the field, which is operated by ConocoPhillips, Industri Energi added.

Wintershall Dea has relied on Russia for decades but decided to halt operations, including joint ventures with Gazprom and its stake in the Nord Stream pipeline, in the wake of Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine. Photo shows a gas processing facility, operated by Gazprom company, at Bovanenkovo gas field on the Yamal…
FRANKFURT/DUESSELDORF (Reuters) -German oil and gas producer Wintershall Dea on Wednesday tried to assuage fears that the hit from its planned Russian exit would be too painful, saying its remaining operations were strong and stable.
Chief Executive Mario Mehren told Reuters that the company considered its Germany, Norway, North Africa and Latin America businesses as core to safeguarding future gas and oil production as well as shifting to green gases and carbon management.
“Our remaining portfolio is a strong and balanced one in which we ensure sensible risk diversification,” he said.
Wintershall Dea has relied on Russia for decades but decided to legally separate its local activities, including joint ventures with Gazprom and its stake in the Nord Stream pipeline, in the wake of Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.
That essentially strips it of half its output and 60% of its reserves.
Mehren said that Russian authorities were making an exit difficult, a fate shared by other Western groups, which, according to sources, face strenuous demands, including large discounts, as a price to divest their local assets.
“In Russia there is a high level of negative creativity in order to keep building up new hurdles (when separating) and making it more difficult for us to withdraw,” he said.
His comments come a day after Wintershall Dea, a joint venture of BASF and Russian billionaire Mikhail Fridman’s investment firm LetterOne, announced it would axe a quarter of jobs as a result of the Russian exit.
The move is part of efforts by Germany to sever ties with what was formerly the country’s most important energy partner and biggest supplier of natural gas, a direct response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Wintershall Dea, Uniper and SEFE, formerly Gazprom Germania, have been among the German firms most affected.
The legal separation of its Russian assets was expected to be completed by mid-2024, leaving open whether this included a possible sale, Wintershall Dea said.
It confirmed investments would be between 1 billion and 1.2 billion euros ($1.1 billion to $1.3 billion) in 2023, but said the final amount would likely be in the mid to lower part of that range.
Wintershall Dea’s stake in the WIGA pipeline company, which Wintershall Dea shares 50/50 with nationalised SEFE, may or may not be considered for sale, now that its role in transporting Russian pipeline gas has ended, Mehren said.
“(WIGA) can become a strategic investment in the direction of hydrogen, carbon management, or new energies,” he said.
