NEXT GEN Marine HYDROGEN - April 2023
The fourth edition of NEXT GEN Marine HYDROGEN Workshop was run via Zoom on 25 April 2023. A high level industry group from 10 countries looked at the near term potential for Hydrogen, Methanol and Ammonia for maritime.
Topics included cutting edge experience of the first hydrogen vessels as they commence operations. Both Hydrogen with Fuel Cell and as a Dual Fuel in internal combustion engines.
Workshop Lead, John Haynes, highlighted global and sector opportunities for all forms of Hydrogens saying, 'We are now seeing various tipping points towards adoption, especially as barriers to legislation and classification are being removed. There will be capital costs involved with new technology, but innovative re-power solutions should mean that we can adapt existing vessels. Hydrogen, methanol and ammonia all have potential - ranging from small engines using Hydrogen gas to the largest ships in the world considering methanol and ammonia as alternative fuels.'
