Corvus Energy board member Sonja Vernøy Hansen has been selected to be a member of the Norwegian Government’s strategy group for Maritime 21
Maritime 21 will review Norway’s strategy for maritime research, development and innovation to help drive technology, research and development opportunities related to green shipping and digitalisation.
The strategy group has been appointed by Norway’s Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries. Norway’s Minister of Trade and Industry Iselin Nybø said “We have now brought together the business community, the organisational community and academia to prepare a new Maritime 21 strategy that will point out how our maritime industry can become greener and more digital.”
Corvus chief executive Geir Bjøkeli said “It is an honor for Corvus Energy to be part of this important work for Norway and contribute to a strategy for greener shipping. We are proud that Sonja is among the selected strategists. Sonja Vernøy Hansen is highly skilled and able to parlay her industry knowledge and experience within political and organisational work to advance and add value and excitement to any project with which she is involved.”
The strategy group consists of 15 members from industry, various universities and several Norwegian organisations and work will be led by Professor Ingrid Schjølberg, dean at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. The group will deliver a report by the end of 2021.
Corvus Energy is developing large-scale maritime hydrogen fuel-cell systems in Norway, partnering with automobile manufacturer Toyota, which will supply the fuel-cell technology and has introduced new standardised, ISO-footprint containerised battery storage – Corvus BOB.
