Marine Environmental protection solutions and renewables energy projects are in our DNA. Our founding team is behind some amazing “industry firsts”. From protecting the global oceans and marine habitats from industrial catastrophes like oil spills from crude oil tankers, oil platform blow-outs and the aftermath of operation Desert Storm in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, via the establishment of Norway's first offshore windturbine and foundation transportation and installation company WindCarrier (now part of Bonheur listed on Oslo Stock Exchange). H2Carrier stands on the shoulders of a dynamic and forward leaning team with global ambitions for next generation fuels, energy production & storage technologies.
From our team's varied and extensive experience from all areas of maritime business, oil and gas industry, on-shore wind technology and business development, fertilizer and ammonia trading industry as well as electrolysis technology development and investment banking: we are uniquely positioned with the right skill-sets to combine cross-industrial knowledge in order to develop a "market first" green ammonia production infrastructure tool.
The key to producing the world's most affordable and cost effective green ammonia lies in sourcing the cheapest possible renewable energy.
The P2XFloater™ with it's all-in-one production, storage and off-loading system can be located adjacent to any near shore wind, solar or hydro power production facility.
H2Carrier can supply clients with a solution to bring off-grid renewables to the global markets.
Key advantages of floating production vs. onshore production
Our P2XFloater™ facility is available for clients with various requirements, from the upstream power producers, enabling their renewables electricity to be converted to a tradable commodity, to the downstream ammonia users and commodity/fuel traders who can procure eAmmonia at manifold or delivered to their terminal of choice. Our goal is to offer our clients secure supply of eAmmonia with fixed and stable long-term pricing.
The first step of understanding the relevance of the P2XFloater™ is to engage with our business development team to discover how we can assist your project and requirements. Via our bespoke techno commercial project platform called P2XNemo we engage with our clients to develop optimal operating models including calculate project economics via our array of Feasibility Studies, Scoping Reports, pre-FEED and full FEED models.
