TECO 2030 : receives NOK 50 million in government support for fuel cell development

25.10.2021 14:44:27 CEST | TECO 2030 ASA | Additional regulated information
required to be disclosed under the laws of a member state

Lysaker, Norway, 25 October 2021 - TECO 2030 (OSE: TECO) has been granted NOK 50
million in Norwegian government support for its development of hydrogen fuel
cells, which will lead to the creation of up to 500 new jobs in northern Norway
by 2030 and contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

"What TECO 2030 is doing is pioneering work that has the potential to change
shipping, cut emissions and create new jobs in northern Norway. This is
inspiring work, and I wish TECO 2030 the best of luck with their exciting
project," says the Norwegian Minister of Trade and Industry, Jan Christian

"I am convinced that many of the good and green solutions that will contribute
to changing the world will come from Norwegian workplaces. That is why I find
TECO 2030's development project incredibly exciting," says Vestre.

The support has been granted by Innovation Norway -
https://www.innovasjonnorge.no/en/start-page/, which is the Norwegian
government's most important instrument for innovation and development of
Norwegian enterprises and industry.

Highest amount awarded to one single project so far in 2021 

The funding Innovation Norway has now awarded to TECO 2030 is the highest amount
it has granted to one single project so far this year.

The funding will go towards the development and testing of the TECO 2030 Marine
Fuel Cell - https://teco2030.no/solutions/teco-marine-fuel-cell/, the first fuel
cell system in the world that is specifically designed for use onboard ships and
on other heavy-duty applications.

"Our support to TECO 2030 is one of several contributions to the green
transition in Norway," says Håkon Haugli, Chief Executive Officer of Innovation

"At the same time, we see that their project could in the long run create a
significant number of jobs in Narvik. Our task is to contribute to business
development throughout Norway, and we believe that TECO 2030's solutions have
great potential, both in the Norwegian market, and internationally," says

Green value creation in northern Norway

TECO 2030 will produce fuel cells at its new combined factory and innovation
center in Narvik in northern Norway, the TECO 2030 Innovation Center -
17911557. The plant will become Norway's first large-scale production of
hydrogen fuel cells.

"We are absolutely thrilled that Innovation Norway has decided to support our
work on developing hydrogen fuel cells. This clearly shows that the Norwegian
government believes in our technology and our plans, and we are very happy and
grateful for that," says Tore Enger, Chief Executive Officer of TECO 2030 ASA.

"With support from the Norwegian government, we will continue our work on
developing fuel cells and establishing a factory in Narvik where these will be
produced. This plant will contribute to economic growth and the creation of new,
green jobs in northern Norway," Enger says.

"The fuel cells we will produce here will help to reduce the environmental and
climate impacts of ships and other heavy-duty applications and enable them to
cut their emissions to zero," he says.

A prerequisite for receiving the support from Innovation Norway is that TECO
2030 raises around NOK 160 million in additional funding from other investors
before the end of March 2023.

TECO 2030 has already been granted up to NOK 5.4 million in indirect government
support in the form of tax deductions for developing the plant's first
semi-automated production line, as announced in September -

Will create up to 500 new jobs in Narvik

Over the next ten years, TECO 2030 expects total investments in the plant to
amount to up to NOK 1 billion. During that period, up to 500 new jobs may be
created in Narvik within development, pilot production and full-scale

TECO 2030 expects to have around 40 employees at the plant already before the
end of 2023, and about 100 before year-end in 2025. The factory is planned to
have an annual production capacity of 60 MW in 2023.

The capacity will be gradually scaled over the following years, and the goal is
that by 2030, the plant will be able to produce up to 1,200 MW of fuel cells
every year, which could lead to several billions of NOK in annual turnover.

Will cooperate with research communities

The production of fuel cells for use within the maritime industry is still in
early stages. TECO 2030 will therefore seek to cooperate with universities and
research organisations with the aim to increase competence in Norway in the
production of fuel cell systems.

TECO 2030 has signed an agreement with UiT The Arctic University of Norway -
5 - which has a campus in Narvik - to cooperate on enhancing research and
education in Norway on hydrogen and fuel cells. 

As part of the agreement, TECO 2030 will in cooperation with UiT give research
communities the opportunity to use the fuel cell element testing facilities at
the TECO 2030 Innovation Center during periods when they are not used in the

Will produce the engine of tomorrow

TECO 2030 is developing fuel cells together with the Austrian powertrain
technology company AVL. Hydrogen fuel cells are the engines of tomorrow and
convert hydrogen into electricity while emitting nothing but water vapour and
warm air.

By installing fuel cells, ships and other heavy-duty applications that are
powered by diesel engines or generators can switch from fossil fuels to hydrogen
and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to zero.

With hydrogen fuel cells, ships can sail emissions-free either on the whole
journey or on shorter distances, such as when sailing into and out of ports.

Hydrogen fuel cells can also be used during port-stay, loading and discharging,
enabling zero-emission operation at berth, without having to connect the ship to
an onshore power supply. 

A zero-emission alternative to batteries

Hydrogen fuel cells offer a zero-emission alternative for applications for which
batteries are not a good option. Batteries are large and heavy, have a limited
range and take a long time to charge. This is not suitable for all ships, and
fuel cells may therefore for many be a better solution.

Fuel cells have a longer range, weigh less, and take up less space than
batteries. They do not need to be recharged and can instead be refuelled with

TECO 2030 plans to test pilot versions of its fuel cells on the new
hydrogen-powered tugboats and transport barges of the Dutch shipowner Chemgas
Shipping, which will operate on the Danube, the second longest river in Europe.
The first delivery is scheduled to take place in 2023 -

Green transition in the maritime industry

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) aims to reduce carbon intensity in
international shipping by 40% by 2030, and to cut the total annual greenhouse
gas emissions from international shipping by at least 50% by 2050 compared to

Ship-owners across the world will therefore have to do something to make their
vessels more climate-friendly, and TECO 2030 will help them with that.

TECO 2030 is delivering technology - https://teco2030.no/solutions/ that helps
ships to reduce their environmental and climate impacts. In addition to hydrogen
fuel cells, the company is developing carbon capture and exhaust gas cleaning
systems for the maritime industry, which will enable ships running on fossil
fuels to reduce their environmental and climate footprints.
