Norconsult has extensive expertise with hydrogen. We offer innovative solutions that provides added value to our customers in the search of a low-emission society. Norway has more than 90 years of experience with hydrogen and started as early as 1927 with water electrolysis at Rjukan, where hydrogen was applied in fertilizer production. Hydrogen, as an efficient and environmentally friendly energy carrier, has a significant potential to reduce the CO2 emissions both nationally and globally.
