HGK Shipping and Hydrogenious have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to design an emissions-free inland waterway vessel with hydrogen carrier technology.
The goal of the HyBarge project, due to start in 2024, is to develop a scalable solution to make hydrogen available as a source of energy on a large scale.
The technology is based on hydrogen, which is bound in a liquid carrier (LOHC). The two partners are planning to develop a demonstration vessel by 2028 and then put it into service; it will be possible to propel the ship with a fuel cell, which is fed with energy from the hydrogen released from the LOHC.
