Alfa Laval to explore methanol fuel cells for marine power

Alfa Laval will begin the testing of a new methanol fuel cell system to help produce sustainable marine power.

The separation solutions company said it will begin testing of a new innovative marine fuel cell system in cooperation with Blue World Technologies, DFDS, Maersk Drilling and Hafnia.

The fuel cell system will use renewable, carbon-neutral methanol as fuel enabling clean operations with very limited emissions with the test period expected to be completed within one year.

It is hoped that through testing at Alfa Laval’s test and training centre in Aalborg, Denmark, the methanol fuel cell system’s potential will be explored as a means to decarbonise the marine sector by providing fossil-free auxiliary power systems.
