Saipem has announced the launch of SUISO, a technological solution for the production of green hydrogen. The trademark has been registered with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).

SUISO combines various renewable energy sources such as floating wind, floating solar and marine energy in a single system. The aim is to power, together or individually, electrolytes installed on existing offshore platforms for the production of green hydrogen. The oxygen resulting from this process can be used in various areas such as aquaculture or seaweed production.

SUISO will first be applied at the AGNES project, an offshore energy hub which Saipem, in partnership with QINT'X, intends to build off the Adriatic coast of Ravenna.

Francesco Caio, CEO of Saipem, commented: “The SUISO brand is an example of Saipem's ability to find innovative and sustainable solutions to lead its clients in the energy transition. The solution is adaptable to the changing characteristics of the marine sites and to the different production needs. The know-how gained in the design and execution of infrastructures and technologically advanced plants allows Saipem to cover the green hydrogen production value chain and to be a strategic partner in the path towards a net zero economy”.
