Norwegian shipping company CRYO Shipping has secured government funding to develop hydrogen as a bunker fuel.
Established as a supplier natural gas, the company said it is now focusing on even greener energy sources such as hydrogen and biogas.
CRYO Shipping said it has received government grants for developing suitable infrastructure solutions for supply of fully renewable energy as marine fuel.
The company said it is now cooperating with major players in the hydrogen industry and initially serving the bold Norwegian shipowners who are taking early positions as consumers of fully renewable marine fuels.
“Hydrogen as marine fuel is in an early phase, and that we still have a way to go with regards to developing suitable concepts, technical solutions, regulations and operational requirements,” said Are Magnussen, CRYO Shipping Partner and Project Manager.
