MoU to study feasibility of green hydrogen for BP refinery

BP, Nouryon (formerly AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals), and the Port of Rotterdam have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to study the feasibility of making green hydrogen via water electrolysis for BP’s refinery in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The refinery currently uses hydrogen made from hydrocarbons, to desulphurise products. Replacing this entirely with green hydrogen produced from...

ABB, SINTEF & Fiskerstrand test fuel cells for hydrogen hybrid ferry conversion

ABB and the SINTEF Ocean laboratory in Trondheim will assess how fuel cells and batteries can best function together for short-distance ferry operations, and how Fiskerstrand can integrate them with other engine room systems. The tests will also provide insight into the introduction of hydrogen fuel cells for future reviews of the rules covering shipboard...

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...
