Clarksons has announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies to collaborate on a roadmap to establish a maritime supply chain for the bulk transportation of green hydrogen in chemical tankers, using Hydrogenious’ LOHC technology.
ccording to a statement, Clarksons will share its experience and knowledge to provide guidance on regulatory frameworks and facilitate solutions aligned with Hydrogenious’ key objective: to enable the large-scale use of clean hydrogen.
As a naturally occurring gas, hydrogen holds enormous potential as an environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuels – either as a power source, or for marine propulsion. Transporting it carries complexities and therefore adoption has been limited to date.
… said Gunnar Broeker, Divisional Director Specialised Products at Clarksons Deutschland GmbH
As informed, the fluid can be stored and transported via the existing chemical tanker fleet. At its destination, the hydrogen is released on demand in high purity for use by industrial offtakers, energy, and mobility.
We are excited to be working with the world’s leading shipbroker in Clarksons, and to benefit from their immense expertise in shipping, trade and energy transition. We look forward to expanding our collaboration and deepening our understanding of the challenges and opportunities within the hydrogen market.
