LNG and hydrogen are viewed as frontrunners to be the fuels that will help maritime achieve the IMO decarbonization targets, according to a new ABS survey.
A new project in Australia eyes development of the world’s first compressed hydrogen ship design (H2 Ship) to transport clean, renewable energy, in line with the country’s National Hydrogen Strategy.
MSC is considering the use of hydrogen and fuels derived from it as a potential fuel source for the future for container shipping.
Danish offshore wind company Ørsted and Japanese fertilizer Yara have joined forces to develop a project aiming at replacing fossil hydrogen with renewable hydrogen in the production of ammonia.
Matthias Flies, Offshore Applications Manager at SAACKE Marine Systems, explains how to ensure safe transport of liquid hydrogen, providing the example of the first worldwide LH2 tanker which relied on his company technology.
A new report by oil major Shell highlights the important role that hydrogen and fuel cells could play in achieving a decarbonised shipping sector and calls for the IMO to adopt a clear trajectory to net-zero emissions by 2050.
In its recently launched Energy Outlook, BP forecasts that the fuel mix for decarbonization in the shipping sector up to 2050 is able to diversify into hydrogen, either as ammonia or in liquid form, and LNG, as well as biofuels.
In its recently launched Energy Outlook, BP forecasts the use of hydrogen as an energy carrier increases significantly in the two of its three scenarios, as the world transitions to a lower carbon energy system. The hydrogen can be used either directly or combined with (bio)carbon or nitrogen to make it easier to transport.
In the main scenarios of this year’s BP Energy Outlook, global energy demand continues to grow for at least part of the period to 2050. However, over this time, the structure of energy demand fundamentally shifts, with a declining role for fossil fuels offset by an increasing share for renewable energy and a growing role for electricity. Decisive policy measures, such as significant increases in carbon prices, are needed to deliver a lasting reduction in emissions from energy use.
Netherlands-based energy company VoltH2 has signed a cooperation agreement with North Sea Port, in order to build a green hydrogen plant in Vlissingen. The plant will produce up to 3.6 million kg (3,600 tonnes) of green hydrogen annually.
