Fuel cell solutions for marine applications
With future regulations on the horizon, port authorities and ship owners/operators are looking at alternative propulsion to reduce emissions. Fuel cell technology provides an attractive zero-emission solution to generate electric power on board using hydrogen as a fuel. This presentation will review the fuel cell value proposition for marine applications, and will discuss product design and development considerations including system architecture and safety as well as hydrogen supply and onboard fuel storage. We will also present some of our current marine projects with major marine industry stakeholders, as well as the opportunities and challenges for the adoption of fuel cell technology.
