Linde has begun the supply of liquid hydrogen to the world's first operational hydrogen-powered ferry for cars and passengers in Norway.

Linde is supplying ferry operator Norled with clean hydrogen for the fuel-cell powered MF Hydra. In addition to supplying clean liquid hydrogen, Linde developed, built and installed the fuel containment system, the associated onshore truck-to-ship bunkering facility, onboard storage tank and fuel processing equipment. The ferry has completed sea trials and started commercial operations.

"Hydrogen is beginning to decarbonize mobility around the world – primarily for long-haul transportation like trains and trucks," said Armando Botello, President Region Europe North, Linde. "We are proud to have worked with Norled on the world’s first project to safely supply clean hydrogen to the marine sector, a step forward for the transition to climate-friendly fuels."

"Norled and our partners are pioneering a shift within the maritime sector," said Heidi Wolden, CEO of Norled. "Liquid hydrogen can play an important role as a zero-emission fuel for shipping and we look forward to seeing the use of this technology gather momentum around the world."
