Hyon offers integrated solutions for the complete hydrogen value chain from production, storage and distribution, to fuel cell technology that supplies electricity without any other emission than heat and water.

In addition to Tronstad, Hyon has also recruited Arild Eiken as Marine Technology Director.

"Hyon’s solutions will be interesting for several maritime segments, as examples; cruise, offshore, and ferry companies requiring clean renewable energy and silent power generation", says Arild Eiken.
