Tokyo-Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) is seeking new applications for hydrogen fuel and wind power as part of a new corporate-academic partnership.
Titled the Wind Hunter Project, the partnership combines wind propulsion sailing technology and wind energy and converts it into hydrogen. MOL said the project is currently working on the Wind Challenger Project to develop sailing technology.
As part of the first phase, the project applies sail technology and combines hydrogen carriers and fuel cells with hydrogen generated by electrolyser which the power is generated by power generation turbine.
The combination of sail and hydrogen technology will enable vessels to sail on schedule even in the periods of low wind and the project team plans to study about the application of supplying hydrogen generated at sea for onshore use.
