Hydrogen holds substantial promise in a range of applications but perhaps the most significant of them all is in shipping. Hydrogen, and derivatives such as ammonia and methanol, could be a vital cog in decarbonising the maritime industry across the globe including in the US.
The US has several projects that showcase the significant impact hydrogen could have on the maritime sector. Hydrogen-powered passenger ferries, for example, have become a popular use for the clean fuel that’s only emission is water vapour.
H2 View spoke with three players in hydrogen maritime applications: Zero Emissions Industries, which produced the Water-Go-Round hydrogen ferry, now called Sea Change; Hornblower, which supervised the Sea Change build; and e1 Marine, which has developed methanol-to-hydrogen technology for the marine sector.
