To capture the opportunities offered by low-carbon alternatives, five Singapore and two Japanese companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to study how hydrogen as a low-carbon alternative can contribute to a clean and sustainable energy future for Singapore.
US-based shipbuilder All American Marine has secured a contract to complete construction of a passenger zero-emissions, hydrogen-powered, electric ferry that will operate in the California Bay Area, under the ‘Water-Go-Round’ project.
IMO has developed an ambitious target to achieve a minimum of 50% reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050. However, to keep in line with this target, shipping industry must trust alternative fuels, that will lead it into the decarbonized future.
The 2020 GREEN4SEA Athens Forum successfully concluded on Wednesday 4th of March, at the Lighthouse at Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC), focusing on the topical green shipping issues and the challenges ahead.
In July 2019, the ICCT hosted an international workshop on zero-emission vessel technology for shipping, during which participants identified hydrogen fuel cells as a promising technology. To assess the potential, this study presents the energy demand and fuel storage space requirements of container ships servicing a corridor from China to the US.
According to BBC, the Keele University through its initiative, is boosting United Kingdom’s hydrogen revolution a step forward. Specifically, the University’s natural gas supply is being blended with 20% of hydrogen, reducing the CO2 amount that is being produced through heating or cooking.
Eoly (part of Colruyt Group), Parkwind and Fluxys revealed plans to build an installation in Zeebrugge, Belgium, to convert renewable electricity into green hydrogen on an industrial scale. The feasibility study for the project turned out positive.
A Dutch consortium comprising Gasunie, Groningen Seaports and Shell The Netherlands, revealed plans to launch the NortH2 project, foreseeing the production of green hydrogen using renewable electricity generated by a mega offshore wind farm, in line with the objectives of the Dutch Climate Accord.
DNV GL recently defined three new technologies, concerning the energy transition. In fact, new battery storage chemistries, high-temperature heat pumps and green hydrogen have among others the potential to reduce CO2 emissions until 2030, as the company reported.
Port of Rotterdam along with DeltaPort Niederrheinhäfen and E.ON join their forces to encourage island shipping in Germany and Europe to turn from diesel to battery or hydrogen. In fact, both sides decided to develop a new infrastructure in which vessels can exchange battery containers or refuel hydrogen.
