The growth of maritime batteries is exceptional in the ferry sector and in offshore shipping. However, for longer routes, larger ships and/or higher speed today’s battery technology isn’t sufficient to achieve zero emission sailing. Today hydrogen is considered as the most realistic zero emission fuel for such vessel types.

In a cluster project partners in NCE Maritime CleanTech are developing a concept for a hydrogen driven platform supply vessel that can serve the oil & gas industry in the North Sea. The vessel’s zero emission energy system will be based on a combination of batteries and hydrogen fuel cells.

The project will also investigate technical aspects and evaluate safety issues, operational challenges, costs, and access to on shore charging and supply of hydrogen.

Cluster partners are Equinor, Wärtsilä Ship Design and NCE Maritime Cleantech (MCT).
