In 2000, the 22-person Hydra ship was demonstrated, and in 2003 the Duffy-Herreshoff watertaxi went into service. 2003 saw the debut of Yacht No. 1, as well Hydroxy3000. The AUVDeepC and Yacht XV 1 were shown in 2004. In 2005 the first example of the Type 212 submarine, which is powered underwater by fuel cells, went into service with the German navy. In 2006 the 12-person Xperiance was debuted, as well as the Zebotec. In 2007 both the 8-person Tuckerboot and the Canal boatRoss Barlow debuted, and in 2008 the 100-passenger Zemships project Alsterwasser went into service in Hamburg. Also, in 2009 the Nemo H2 and the Frauscher 600 Riviera HP went into service. In 2013 the Hydrogenesis Passenger Ferry project went into service.
Hjalti Pall Ingolfsson from Icelandic New Energy has commented that ships are fast becoming the biggest source of air pollution in the European Union. It is estimated that by 2020 emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides from ships will exceed land-based emissions in Europe. A big issue to be dealt with would be the storage of hydrogen on ships, given that there would be no opportunity to refill them when out at sea, although one can use wind power and solar panels to generate electricity from the ocean while they are far from the shores and produce onboard hydrogen.
Bureau Veritas (BV) has launched its first classification Rules for hydrogen-fuelled ships (NR678) to support the safe development of hydrogen propulsion in the maritime sector ... As informed, BV’s Rules for hydrogen-fuelled ships aim to mitigate the risk of hydrogen leakage, fire ...
We are developing PEM hydrogen fuel cell stacks and PEM hydrogen fuel cell modules, that enable ships and other heavy-duty applications to become emissions-free ... We are developing PEM hydrogen fuel cell stacks and PEM hydrogen fuel cell modules, that enable ships and other heavy-duty applications to become emissions-free.
Plans were announced for four hydrogen-powered general cargo vessels as the Saverys continue to push forward on multiple fronts with their efforts to develop what they are calling future-proof shipping ... The Saverys look to increase the use of alternative fuels including hydrogen and ammonia in all segments of the shipping industry.
“COP is a great opportunity to sense check how wider players in the energy system are perceiving shipping, especially since the MEPC 80 outcome, and if they have yet realised it is an obvious keystone/foundation for any national hydrogen strategies,” Smith said.
Belgium’s Compagnie Maritime Belge, via its cleantech division, CMB.Tech has teamed up with compatriot shipping company Boeckmans to build four hydrogen-powered general cargo vessels ... The ships, designed jointly with Handelskade, will contain diesel-electric engines placed ...
Belgium’s Saverys family continues to push forward aggressively with its vision of expanding the use of hydrogen as the emerging future fuel for the shipping industry ... The Saverys have said they planned to add at least six more hydrogen-fueled CTVs by 2024 as well as their efforts to use the technology in other segments of shipping.
the development of 4 future-proof hydrogen-powered 5.000dwt general cargo vessels with significantly reduced greenhouse emissions ... By embracing innovative propulsion systems such as hydrogen, we are not just building ships; we are working toward a greener future for global trade routes.
Connected to this opportunity is another – green hydrogen, ... Like any energy source, of course, there are challenges – most notably shipping and handling because hydrogen is highly flammable, much more so than natural gas, propane and gasoline; this raises the costs of production.
HarbourmasterGrant Nalder said the Ovation of the Seas was preparing to berth, before the ship's captain decided it was not prepared to stay in the capital due to strong winds, and headed for Napier ...Obviously, we don't have biofuels and hydrogen as yet, but that's what the ships are being designed for.
