The JV will be equally owned by the three parties and will initially focus on projects within marine applications." remarked Jon Andre Lokke, CEO of Nel.

"Together with Nel's leading technology for hydrogen production and fueling, the three companies are positioned to deliver unparalleled customer value in the form of a zero-emission power solutions," Lokke added.
