WFO launches new Offshore Wind to Hydrogen Committee chaired by DNV Hydrogen Segment Head Magnus Killingland
WFO is launching a new Offshore Wind to Hydrogen Committee chaired by Magnus Killingland, head of DNV’s hydrogen segment.
The World Offshore Wind Forum (WFO) and its members believe that hydrogen production from offshore wind creates huge new opportunities for the global offshore wind industry.
To promote the acceleration of commercial-scale offshore wind hydrogen deployments around the world, WFO has launched its Offshore Wind to Hydrogen Committee as a new, truly international industry initiative.
This will be WFO’s third committee following the successful establishment of the Floating Offshore Wind Committee and the Offshore Dispute Resolution Committee.
As an industry-led initiative, the Hydrogen Offshore Wind Committee will focus on the following key areas:
- Optimization of the offshore wind value chain PtX
- Funding, business cases and regulation
- Security and risks
The new Offshore Wind to Hydrogen committee will be chaired by Magnus Killingland. Magnus is DNV’s Segment Leader for Hydrogen and CCS in Northern Europe, advising on industry challenges for a rapid and safe energy transition.
This includes advice and verification for risk reduction investment decisions and the development of technologies and value chains for the production of hydrogen on and at sea, including ammonia and sustainable fuels, and the large-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS).
Magnus Killingland holds a degree in Energy and Process Engineering from NTNU Norway and TU Wien Austria, as well as an Executive MBA from BI Norwegian Business School with IFP Paris and Haas Business School in Berkeley, California. The inaugural meeting of the Hydrogen Offshore Wind Committee will be held on November 2, 2022 and is open to all WFO members.
Magnus KillinglandLead Hydrogen & CCS Segment, DNV said:
DNV is really looking forward to continuing industry discussions on offshore wind hydrogen value chains.
“It is time to detail the feasibility studies in plans for large-scale production of hydrogen and hydrogen carriers for decarbonization and energy security. The direct production and transport of molecules, rather than electrons, may have cost advantages for some projects at a certain scale.Joining the committee gives organizations the opportunity to explore this for a safe and rapid energy transition.
Gunnar HerzigManaging Director, World Forum Offshore Wind (WFO) concluded:
We are delighted to launch our new Hydrogen Offshore Wind Committee.
“Along with DNV and all WFO members, we will ensure that this new committee is as exciting, interactive and productive as our two existing committees on floating wind and alternative dispute resolution.”
WORLD FORUM OFFSHORE WIND (WFO) is the only organization in the world 100% dedicated to
promote the global growth of offshore wind power. WFO’s international members represent the full offshore wind value chain, including developers, manufacturers, service companies and other organizations.
WFO is registered as a non-profit association (eV) in Germany with offices in Hamburg, Taipei, New York and Tokyo. WFO’s unique profile facilitates access to government and international forums to open new markets and advocate for global offshore wind growth.
