Hydro Havrand offers green hydrogen solutions for customers aiming at net-zero emission.

To reach net zero emissions by 2050 the world needs green hydrogen. Hydro Havrand, Hydro’s hydrogen company, will help drive the uptake of green hydrogen in sectors and processes we are not able to directly electrify – such as certain industrial processes, long-haul transportation and shipping.

We are an industrial venture with global ambitions, building on Hydro’s 115 years of experience within renewable energy and industry development to build world-leading capabilities and operational performance.

Hydrogen is only as clean as the methods used to produce it, and our hydrogen is based on hydro, solar and wind power. Together with our partners, we have access to a global network of sites with large predictable offtake and favorable power sourcing agreements. We aim to be an early mover in the hydrogen industry and help or customers succeed with their energy transition and to cut emissions. If you are keen on an exciting job where you are part of tackling the key issue the world is facing, then join us!
