The duo on Monday (April 11) said they are currently building the 190-meter-long vessels for the safe and effective transportation of hydrogen to countries in Northern Europe.

Designed to use hydrogen in the propulsion systems of the vessel, the ship is expected to leave a minimal carbon footprint and set the stage for future hydrogen carrier developments.

On the developments, Jonas Meyer, CEO of Gen2 Energy, said, “The transportation of hydrogen is challenging, and we are very excited to be in the forefront of the development of technology, enabling cost effective, safe, and green logistical solutions.

“By working jointly with the experienced team of Sirius D&I we feel confident that we will reach our set goals and be ready to deliver hydrogen to our clients when our productions start.”

Erik Haakonsholm, Chief Operating Officer at Sirius Design & Integration, added, “We have set ourselves the goal of contributing to sustainable designs and solutions, so that our customers in the international maritime and marine industry can grow safely, green and profitably.

“Therefore, it is very gratifying that our first contract is a ship design and a customer with a green profile throughout the value chain.”
