Hege Økland will move into a new management position to make shipping emission-free.

In her new roles as Head of Iverson eFuels AS and Head of Hy2gen Norge AS, she will now lead the development of green ammonia production in Sauda, a renewable power center in Western Norway.

Hege Økland has for more than ten years built up and led the cluster organization Maritime CleanTech and has had a central role in the development of several collaborative innovation projects in the Norwegian maritime cluster.

She will move into a new role and lead the establishment of the production of green ammonia in Sauda. The Sauda project, which is also known as “Iverson” is planned to have the capacity in the first phase to produce 600 tons of ammonia per day with an electrolysis capacity of approximately 250 megawatts.

The plan is for the facility to be further scaled up becoming one of the largest production facilities for green ammonia in the world.

Økland has been appointed as head of Hy2gen Norge AS, which is one of three partners in the Iverson project in Sauda. The other partners are the trading company Trafigura and a fund managed by Copenhagen InfrastructurePartners (CIP). Together, the three project partners have the necessary expertise and ability to carry out such a project.

I am looking forward to leading this project with these partners who all have a strong will and ability to succeed in contributing to the green shift in shipping. Large-scale development is taking place on the ship technology side to be able to use ammonia as fuel. Now it remains to arrange the delivery of the fuel, which of course must be carbon-free, says Hege Økland.

The project will create several hundred jobs in Sauda and be an important contributor to the green industrial transition.
