Odegard joined Corvus Energy in 2018. He was responsible for the North American market and was president of Corvus USA until 2022, when he took a global role as SVP business development, fuel cell. He holds a degree in electrical engineering with a major in marine electrical systems through Aalesund Maritime College and Western Norway University of Applied Science. Odegard has been working internationally on large and advanced maritime projects with a focus on the electrification of maritime systems, a transition that includes power distribution grids, power management systems, energy storage systems and fuel cells, from both a technical and commercial point of view.


Extending zero-emission operations with energy storage & fuel cell systems

Combining energy storage together with fuel cells, plus a green fuel, such as hydrogen, takes zero-emission technology one step further. It provides an efficient solution to expand the range and flexibility of zero-emission operations and enables new emissions savings for longer-route and larger vessels that previously were not achievable. This presentation will outline benefits of the technology and share insights from the multi-year development and testing of a marine fuel cell system.
