A project exploring the possibility of launching a green hydrogen-fuelled autonomous submarine between Scotland and Northern Ireland has been named as a winner in the UK Government’s Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition.
Led by Oceanways Technologies, the modular submarines would be able to perform multiple marine missions, but the first target market will be to ship cargo with 0kg CO2 emissions within the UK and between its trade partners.
Named as one of 55 winners in the competition, the project could help cleanse the oceans of toxic pollution by collecting microplastics on its pilot route between Glasgow and Belfast.
The £23m government-funded competition will support the development of innovative technology to propel the government’s commitment to have zero emission ships operating commercially by 2025.
