Green Yacht is a company that develops emission-free energy solutions for the maritime sector. The company's primary focus is on hydrogen-based systems in combination with batteries for best performance in terms of range, speed and filling-time.
Green Yachts main project at the moment is the preparation of the boat Hydrogen Viking - a technology demonstrator and a pilot project that will pave the way for other emission-free solutions in the maritime sector. The technology being developed in the pilot project is planned to be used in several other vessels in Norway; this includes ferries, speedboats, fishing vessels, and cruise ships. As a company, Green Yacht will be able to take an important role in the production and delivery of boats with similar technology as the demostration boat. The company will sell systems for new builds and for the retrofitting of existing boats.
Hydrogen tanks that store compressed hydrogen will be stored safely on board. Re-fuel systems will be developed as part of the solution.
Fuel cell modules and high capacity batteries will provide the necessary electric power. Batteries provide acceleration and fuel cell/hydrogen tanks provide range.
A well-developed Power Management System (PMS) will be installed to handle the different power sources.
State-of-the-art electric motors are used to drive the vessel quietly through the water.

Hordaland County Council has, after an application, supported the project with NOK 500 000,- which will be used for a very important preliminary project that is well underway. This helps to cover half of the costs we have during the pre-project which includes technical calculations, meeting activities, preparation of progress plans, as well as other things that form the basis for the next and more practical part of the project.
BOH has been very cooperative and was helpful in obtaining a berth at short notice when the R&D vessel arrived in Bergen.
Jotun is a sponsor and has supported us with quality products from the Jotun Yachting series that include all products a boat owner needs for the maintenance of their boat. We have got detergents, lubrication, rubbing, polishing agent, etc. Read more about Jotun's boat products here.
