Guidance for 2022
Due to the technical design complications related to the HyProvide® A-Series platform announced 12 April 2022 (company announcement 04/2022), the guidance for 2022 has been suspended. The guidance will be resumed when a firm plan has been established.
Sebastian Koks Andreassen, CEO of Green Hydrogen Systems comments:
”2022 started out on a positive note with several new customer orders. Unfortunately, in April, we faced certain technical design complications on the A-Series product platform, which made us temporarily halt product deli- veries and as a consequence thereof we had to suspend the guidance for 2022.”
“Our testing and technical reviews had identified certain technical design issues related to the initial A-Series products of our Mk1 version. Despite our disappointment in detecting these issues, each of the identified tech- nical issues are assessed manageable and relate to plausible complications in an industrial process of driving innovative technology from the initial Mk1 versions to serial production. That said, the full range of issues requi- res us to correct certain product components and functions and to allow time for recalibration and validation.”
“We are working intensively to confirm our plan for these technical corrections, and thereafter to confirm our adjusted delivery schedule and revised guidance for 2022.”
“Despite this temporary technical setback we have full confidence in the competitive advantages and potential of our innovative pressurised alkaline electrolyser technology. The development of the future X-Series platform remains high priority and is progressing as planned.”
“We are observing a positive market momentum and outlook. The EU has recently announced initiatives to significantly accelerate the production and use of green hydrogen in 2030 by 400%. The expected production can be translated into global electrolysis capacity of 320-400 GW providing a significant potential for us to supply the market with the X-Series electrolyser platform from 2023.”
