About The Webinar
The understanding on hydrogen safety is getting more important than ever. Hydrogen technology is being developed worldwide in the push towards a low-carbon society. Hydrogen may be a solution to various critical energy challenges associated with the storage and transport of energy (especially that from renewable sources such as wind and solar), but the use of hydrogen brings its own challenges. Even though hydrogen has properties that make it safer to handle and use compared to other fuels, such as its non-toxic nature, other properties might be require engineering control to ensure its safety.
During this webinar, Geirmund Vislie provided an overview of hydrogen safety, started with details of hydrogen properties, and what makes it different from handling other chemicals, through to practical information on current best practice design approaches relevant across multiple industries (such as transportation, energy, and manufacturing). Lessons learned from recent incidents were also discussed.
About The Speaker
Vice President Hydrogen Safety of Gexcon AS
Geirmund has been involved in many hydrogen-related projects. His latest achievement was his involvement in the investigation of the incident that occurred last June at the Kjørbo hydrogen refueling station in Sandvika, Norway. He was also involved in a number of projects concerning the use of hydrogen as a fuel in maritime applications, featuring both liquefied and compressed hydrogen.
