Fuel cell solution for marine applications
Electrification of propulsion system is advancing and fuel cell technology provides the opportunity to produce, on board, large quantity of power with zero-emission using hydrogen as a fuel. This presentation will review the fuel cell value proposition for marine applications, product design considerations, as well as opportunities and challenges for the adoption of fuel cell technology. The presentation will review some of the product development considerations including, system architecture and safety as well as hydrogen supply and on board fuel storage. Examples of current fuel cell ferry projects in Scotland and Norway will be used.
