Brooklyn, New York and Kristiansand, Norway – July 4, 2023 – Amogy Inc., a pioneer of emission-free, energy-dense ammonia power solutions, and Southwind, a private initiative funded by established players in the Kristiansand energy supplier market, today announced they have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). Under the terms of their MoU, the parties will establish a foundation for future collaboration, and will explore joint opportunities for mutual promotion and to advocate for offshore wind.
As the global offshore wind industry continues to rapidly expand, Southwind aims to establish Kristiansand as an operational base for offshore wind field developments and as the preferred hub for a national competence center. Correspondingly, Amogy, which expanded its operations to Norway in 2022, recognizes the potential that the offshore industry holds for its innovative ammonia-to-power technology, and the company has formed multiple strategic partnerships to explore the application of its technology in this sector.
With Amogy and Southwind’s mutual interest in offshore wind energy, this collaboration is thus an excellent opportunity to work together to promote sustainable initiatives across the industry and to advance the efforts of both parties, allowing them to leverage their respective expertise.
“Our partnership with Southwind marks an exciting chapter in our journey to establish ammonia-to-power as a game-changing solution for the offshore industry,” stated Christain Berg, Managing Director of Amogy Norway. “By combining our expertise and resources, we are confident that we can play a pivotal role in advancing the development of offshore energy and in establishing ammonia as a zero-emission solution for this industry.”
“We are delighted to partner with Amogy in our quest to revolutionize the offshore wind energy sector,” said Jonas Kvåle, CEO at Southwind. “Together, we aim to drive innovation, accelerate technological advancements, and contribute to a greener and more sustainable future.”
