Pathways to IMO 2050

Shipping is preparing to meet a tough emissions target that aims for at least a 50 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050 compared with a 2008 baseline. To meet this ambitious goal, which is equal to a reduction of at least 470 million tonnes of cargo emissions according to Dr Martin Stopford,...

New vessel design supports liquefied hydrogen bunkering

Moss Maritime, Equinor, Wilhelmsen, and DNV-GL have developed a design for a liquefied hydrogen (LH2) bunker vessel. Large-scale use of hydrogen across both the land and maritime sectors will require specific vessels tailored to transporting and bunkering liquefied hydrogen. The project, sponsored by Innovation Norway, aims to clarify challenges and find solutions for storage and...

Norway continues push for zero-emission shipping

Five cluster partners in NCE Maritime CleanTech are cooperating to develop a zero-emission fast ferry concept, powered by batteries and hydrogen fuel. Norled, Selfa Arctic, LMG Marin, Hyon and Servogear, are part of the development of the zero emission fast ferry (ZeFF) concept, which was awarded 10.5 million NOK in December 2018 from the public...

Havyard hydrogen-powered project receives NOK 104m

Havila Kystruten has received NOK 104.3 million for its zero emissions projects, which will use hydrogen to power vessels on coastal routes, resulting in vessels with up to five times longer zero-emission voyage than other vessels. The two topics are ‘Zero-emissions maritime transport 2.0’, and ‘Havyard – Zero-Emission ROPAX Vessel’ project. The funding comes from...

Construction of Golden Gate zero emission vessel begins

Golden Gate Zero Emission Marine (GGZEM) has begun constructing a hydrogen fuel cell boat that aims to demonstrate the advantages of hydrogen fuel cells for the maritime industry. Water-Go-Round is a 70-foot catamaran first-of-its-kind hydrogen fuel cell boat, being built by Bay Ship & Yacht of Alemeda. Once launched, the vessel will operate for three...

California port to vote on hydrogen fuelling station

The Long Beach Board of Harbour Commissioners is to vote on a proposal by Toyota Logistics Services to reconfigure its facility at Pier B and build a renewable fuel-cell power plant and hydrogen fuelling station. The proposal by Toyota will streamline its port operations. Currently, Toyota operates a marine terminal at the port where new...

New project examines feasibility of hydrogen-powered vessel

Sandia National Laboratories is leading a ship design and feasibility study that explores the use of hydrogen fuel cells to power vessels. The project team has designed a research vessel, known as Zero-V, to test hydrogen fuel cells. The vessel will operate at slow speeds for long distances, carrying few people and operating in voyaging...

ICS: zero CO2 fuels needed to achieve 2050 GHG target

The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) has said that meeting IMO’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions target will “realistically only be achieved with the development and widespread use, by a large proportion of the fleet, of zero CO2 fuels.” According to Esben Poulsson, chairman, ICS, this “ground-breaking agreement”, which requires shipping to reduce its emissions by...

Toyota sponsors hydrogen-powered vessel

Hydrogen-powered vessel, Energy Observer, has received sponsorship from Toyota Motor Europe. Energy Observer is powered by hydrogen, using renewable energies and a system that produces carbon-free hydrogen from seawater, emitting no greenhouse gases or fine particles. Energy Observer was launched in 2017 in Saint-Malo, France, and is now completing a six-year worldwide tour to test...

LR-led research suggests biofuel may be the best option for zero-emissions shipping

Biofuels may be the most feasible low-cost zero-emission fuel for some shipowners and operators in a post-2030 shipping industry, finds latest research. In a report prepared by Lloyd’s Register (LR) and the University Maritime Advisory Services (UMAS) for the Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI), the most likely cost-effective alternatives to fossil fuels including hydrogen fuel cells,...
