PowerCell and Havyard developing hydrogen fuel cell system for ferries

PowerCell Sweden and Norwegian shipbuilder Havyard Group are working together to develop a zero emission fuel cell system that could be installed on a Havila Kystruten ferry in the future.

The system solution that PowerCell and Havyard jointly design will be based on several marinized 200 kilowatt fuel cell system modules connected in parallel with a total power of 3.2 megawatts.

“With this contract, PowerCell will be part of developing the design and the technical specifications for what will be the most powerful maritime fuel cell system in the history,” Per Wassén, CEO of PowerCell said.

“This will be a milestone for us as well as for the global efforts to reduce the emissions from commercial ships and the experience we gain from this project will benefit us greatly also within other segments, such as stationary power generation.”
