Aker Horizons develops and operates clean hydrogen production on an industrial scale. The company from Norway is dedicated to creating value and reducing emissions through renewable energy and decarbonization technologies. During project implementation, Aker Horizons can draw on the expertise of the entire Aker Group and leverage its many years of experience in engineering, technology development and digitalization to increase efficiency and reduce project costs. By 2030, the company aims to have a net installed capacity of 5 GW of hydrogen production and will make an important contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions worldwide.
Wind has enormous power.
Wind energy has long made an important contribution to electricity generation from renewable sources. Wind sets the rotor blades of wind turbines in motion. This drives a generator and the electricity generated is fed into the grid.
Germany aims to generate 65% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030. Wind power is considered a promising energy source and plays a central role in energy policy.
In June 2013, the AVIA Group entered the electricity production business. Currently, 8 wind turbines with 20 megawatts of power provide electricity that is fed into the grid. Around 15,000 households can be supplied with renewable energy. The plants will save almost 36,000 tons of CO2.
The joint-stock company “EMS” is a maritime service provider that attracts attention as a “first mover” through innovative ship projects. The island ferry MV “Ostfriesland” was converted from conventional marine diesel to environmentally friendly LNG (liquefied natural gas) for the first time in Europe as a pilot project in 2015. A first German LNG new-build vessel joined the fleet in the same year. The subsidiary EMS Maritime Offshore GmbH offers comprehensive services as a maritime service provider in the offshore sector. Here, maritime applications for battery and hydrogen hybrid propulsion systems as well as basic Power to X applications for the maritime industry are considered and implemented.
The Department of Economic Development is the regional contact point for companies and start-ups in all questions and concerns related to the topics of funding programs, business and economic development.
The topics of the Department of Economic Development include traditional core industries such as port & logistics, fish and food industry, but also innovative industries such as pharmaceuticals and biotechnology.
