Binder Grösswang advised Cryoshelter GmbH on the entry of Hexagon Composites ASA into the liquid natural gas (LNG) business segment and the entry of Hexagon Purus ASA into the liquid hydrogen (LH2) business segment, in each case in the form of a minority shareholding with an option for the acquisition of all the shares within a specified period of time after the closing.

The objective of Hexagon Composites ASA and its subsidiary Hexagon Purus ASA is to aid the commercialization and industrialization of Cryoshelter’s expertise in developing cryogenic tank technologies for liquid natural gas and liquid hydrogen through additional financing. Liquid natural gas is deemed to be a possible interim solution for increasing the energy independence of Europe.
