It is possible to choose zero emissions right from the start. Hydrogen fuel cells are already fitted to several ships and many other applications: buses, trucks, trains, stationary power, the list goes on. By choosing fuel cell technology there will be no need to re-invest in retrofitting during your ship’s lifecycle. You will be at the forefront of technology and operationally secure for the next 30 years. The perfect alternative to diesel or batteries You are probably aware that diesel is the problem and BEV (Battery Electric Vehicles) is not the solution to all problems. For diesel the drawbacks are high maintenance costs, noise, smell and CO2 emissions limiting potential sailing locations. Batteries, although emission free, have a low energy density and therefore take up too much space. And the time needed for charging limits operational usability and puts a strain on local electrical grids. A hydrogen fuel cell setup, including electrical engines, takes up little space, produces almost no noise or vibrations and requires limited maintenance. There is also hydrogen available today that no one uses, e.g. from various industries. That way you can drastically lower GHG emissions right now and move to true zero emissions when hydrogen production from renewable energy sources is more developed.
