Fuel cell developments for maritime shipping

Freudenberg Sealing Technologies has partnered with the Pa-X-ell 2 project to develop a new generation of fuel cells for use on seagoing vessels.

Project Pa-X-ell 2, led by Meyer Werft, aims to achieve sustainable, carbon dioxide-free mobility at sea. Freudenberg Sealing Technologies aims to achieve this with Meyer Werft by setting goals to equip all future generations of cruise ships with fuel cell propulsion.

As part of the project, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies will investigate the use of fuel cells with integrated fuel reforming on board future passenger ship generations. The fuel cell used is powered by hydrogen, which is reformed from methanol.

The first practical tests for the solutions will take place on the AIDAnova cruise ship and are planned for as early as 2021.
