Everfuel will plan, install and operate an optimised, scalable hydrogen fuelling solution for a brand-new zero emission ship which is expected to consume approximately 1,000kg of hydrogen per day.
The Denmark-based company today (8th April) said it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with an undisclosed German-Norwegian shipping company for the fuel supply.
“Today, ships are mainly propelled by maritime diesel engines, which are highly pollutant. A single large container ship or a passenger cruiser can emit as much sulphur emissions to the air as 50 million cars in a year,” explained Jacob Krogsgaard, CEO of Everfuel.
“Switching to zero emission solutions will make a significant difference. We look forward to this cooperation on pioneering green shipping fuelled by hydrogen from Everfuel.”
Unveiling future plans for the collaboration, Everfuel said they intend to establish firm contracts for long-term hydrogen supply and offtake to projects under development by the undisclosed partner.
