Agreement announced for ship that produces hydrogen at sea

A joint development project (JDP) agreement has been signed to develop a new bulk carrier ship using an innovative fuel solution of LNG and hydrogen produced on demand, on board, which is hoped to meet the International Maritime Organisation’s (IMO) 2050 targets.

Class Society RINA revealed the JDP with Maran Dry Management and Shanghai Merchant Ship Design & Research Institute (SDARI) will see the design of a 210,000DWT bulk carrier, which will be based on a propulsion arrangement to reduce the running machinery at sea and combine the ship’s fuel (LNG) with steam to produce hydrogen and carbon dioxide.

According to the project partners, the solution addresses existing LNG bunkering facilities, requiring no onshore hydrogen infrastructure with no need for supply and storage of hydrogen on board.
