Australian group Provaris Energy has struck a deal to explore the storage and shipping of hydrogen to be produced by Gen2 Energy’s plant in Norway.

The two sides intend to develop a large-scale European hydrogen supply chain.

Gen2 said the duo will conduct a comprehensive “pre-feasibility” study to determine the technical and economic viability of producing and supplying compressed green hydrogen from Afjord, using Provaris’ marine storage solutions and pioneering new gas carriers.
