HAV Hydrogen to introduce deck-based containerized, modular H2 system for ships


HAV Hydrogen, a system integrator for marine gasoline cell options, is ready to launch a deck-based containerized hydrogen vitality system for ships with a view to fast-track the business use of hydrogen as ship gasoline.


The containerized H2 resolution relies on the hydrogen-based vitality system developed within the FreeCO2ast venture, which developed a maritime hydrogen-based vitality system with a liquid hydrogen tank under deck. (Earlier publish.) Earlier this 12 months, the Norwegian Maritime Authority and DNV granted preliminary approval for the below-deck system.

The containerized, deck-based system is our response to shipowners who desire a retrofit possibility that represents considerably decrease value and danger for vessels that haven’t already been ready for a standard retrofit set up under deck. Whereas for newbuild vessels it may be an answer that reduces danger and complexity for a know-how that’s new to most shipyards.

HAV Hydrogen’s containerized resolution is a stand-alone, scalable energy provide the place all help and security programs in addition to electrical energy administration are included. The answer relies on 200kW hydrogen gasoline cells modules and may, for instance, be arrange with 1,000 kW output from a normal 20-foot-long transport container. By utilizing bigger containers, or combining a number of containers, bigger capability vitality programs may also be obtainable.

Put in impact can be utilized for the primary propulsion programs, or for added energy provide on board the vessel. Output impact might be dimensioned to offer optimum zero emission energy in desired working conditions, crusing patterns and vessel kind.

Our containerized resolution might be the short path to zero emission for a lot of vessel varieties. It’s straightforward to put in and allows the client a faster route by means of the difficult approval course of for hydrogen programs and important danger discount by acquiring a turnkey resolution for a set worth. This can in flip enable us to make the most of completely different financing fashions as we consider this might be essential to get the zero-emission market up and working.

As a specialist system integrator for marine gasoline cell options, HAV Hydrogen will supply help to shipowners, ship designers and shipyards to make sure an optimum design, integration and set up course of.
