HAV Hydrogen AS is a start-up company founded on the basis of several years of R&D work in marine, hydrogen-based energy systems in the HAV group. The company cooperates with a wide range of suppliers, shipping companies, public funding agencies and private investors to enable zero-emission voyages in the future.

The company is part of a major research project, FreeCO2ast, which is working to develop a system for using hydrogen as a fuel for ships on long-distance voyages.

HAV Hydrogen is now expanding their staff, and Hanne Reite Keyn is one of the first to be appointed. 

Robust complete supplier

Keyn comes from the position of Purchasing Manager of Havyard Leirvik and has extensive maritime experience from the shipyard industry, supplier market and public funding agencies.
Hanne Reite Keyn will help to make HAV Hydrogen a robust complete supplier of systems and system integration.

‘My job will be to develop good cooperation models with the right players in the new market that will emerge in the next few years.’

Zero-emission solutions even for longer distances

Keyn looks forward to being a part of a new company’s exciting start-up and development phase.

‘We’re a new company that is also fortunate to be able to cooperate with our sister companies in the HAV Group, which have extensive experience of equipment and design in addition to research and development. On this basis, I believe our company has what it takes to create and deliver good zero-emission solutions.’ 

In addition to developing and delivering hydrogen-based energy systems for vessels, HAV Hydrogen also provides evidence-based advice on the choice of technical solutions, carries out pre-studies and approval work, and consults on financing solutions.

‘And, most importantly, we are helping to steer the industry through the green transition, and can help to create zero-emission solutions even for ships sailing longer distances. This way we can reduce emissions in the shipping industry and globally.’

General Manager of HAV Hydrogen Kristian Osnes is pleased that the company has started the process of building an organisation and that Hanne Reite Keyn has joined their team.

‘Hanne Reite Keyn’s experience of sourcing, supplier development and procurement agreements will be very important to HAV Hydrogen's endeavours to build a supplier structure for complete hydrogen systems.’
