        航运巨头马士基的母公司,丹麦A.P.穆勒控股已决定向本国能源公司GHS(Green Hydrogen Systems)进行投资。GHS研发的模块式电解槽(modular electrolyzer)能从可再生能源中制氢。
        A.P.穆勒控股的首席信息官扬·尼尔森(Jan T. Nielsen)评价道:“我们把氢能视为未来工业、航运业和重型运输领域绿色能源组合的重要组成部分。”
        除了A.P.穆勒控股之外,GHS大股东Nordic Alpha Partners也决定向其额外投资700万欧元。另外,GHS的另一现任股东Norlys Holding也将投资100万欧元。
A.P. Moller Holding invests millions in Green Hydrogen Systems
Denmark’s A.P. Moller Holding, a parent company of shipping major Maersk, has decided to invest in compatriot Green Hydrogen Systems, a supplier of modular electrolyzers producing green hydrogen from renewable energy.
As informed, A.P. Moller Holding will invest in Green Hydrogen Systems in the form of a convertible loan of EUR 20 million (around $24 million).
“We see hydrogen as an important part of the future green energy mix for industry, shipping and heavy transport,” Jan T. Nielsen, CIO, A. P. Moller Holding, commented.
“Green Hydrogen Systems has a compelling technology platform for electrolytic hydrogen production based on green energy and we are excited to support them in developing this platform further.”
As part of the agreement to invest, A. P. Moller Holding will have the right to appoint one member to the board of directors of Green Hydrogen Systems.
Apart from A.P. Moller Holding, Nordic Alpha Partners, the major shareholder of Green Hydrogen Systems, had agreed to invest an additional EUR 7 million in the company. What is more, current shareholder Norlys Holding will invest EUR 1 million.
These investments, totaling about EUR 28 million, will enable Green Hydrogen Systems to meet the accelerating demand for electrolyzer capacity. The ongoing scale-up implies investment in larger facilities and a larger organisation with added resources and competencies along the full value chain of the company, i.e. R&D, sales, manufacturing, and assembly, commissioning and after-sales service.
The EU recently announced an ambitious hydrogen strategy targeting 6 GW of installed capacity by 2024 and 40 GW by 2030 compared with the current around 300 MW installed hydrogen capacity today. In addition to this, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Portugal and Norway have established ambitious national strategies for green hydrogen production.
