Our CEO, Olav Roald Hansen, has previously worked at Gexcon for nearly 20 years. At Gexcon he contributed to the development and validation of the FLACS CFD model, with significant effort towards hydrogen modelling. His familiarity of FLACS’ abilities is used by HYEX Safety to perform simulations beyond the defined capabilities of the model, for example to model detonations, tank bursts, and liquid hydrogen releases. HYEX Safety has an interest keeping FLACS as the leading CFD consequence model for hydrogen safety studies and has therefore entered into a partnership with the development team at Gexcon with the aim of supporting the development of new models and functionality to make the software better suited for hydrogen safety modeling to the benefit of all users.Gexcon.com

The Zero Emissions Ship Technology Association is an international cluster with the aim of promoting a rapid transition to zero-emisstion maritime solutions. HYEX Safety is a member of ZESTAs with expertise within safety related to hydrogen-based fuels for the maritime. We help enabling this transition by finding and documenting safe design solutions for vessels developed to use hydrogen-based fuels. We contribute to ZESTAs with our experience, participating in meetings and presenting our work at conferences.ZESTAs.org
Ocean Hyway Cluster is in Norway the leading network for hydrogen-based solutions in the maritime sector. The cluster is active in facilitating collaboration between its members and different sectors, and it is a centre for competence for the hydrogen value chain. HYEX Safety is an active member of the cluster, participating in several of the cluster projects and working closely with many of the other members.OceanHywayCluster.no
HYDROGENi is a Norwegian R&D initiative aiming to develop relevant competence and technical solutions for the implementation of hydrogen as a fuel in society. The centre, with more than 50 industry and academic partners, will receive a grant from the Norwegian Research Council of 200 MNOK over 8 years and will educate 35 PhD/postdocs and more than 100 master/bachelor candidates. HYEX Safety looks forward to contributing with our experience in hydrogen and ammonia safety.HYDROGENi article
