British engineering giant Rolls-Royce is developing cutting-edge technologies for the marine and infrastructure sectors, with a strong emphasis on fuel cell systems and the development and deployment of synthetic fuels, via a newly set up organisational unit called Power Lab.
Set up by Rolls-Royce’s Power Systems business, the Power Lab has set its sights on the use of fuel cells in power generation and marine propulsion.
“In terms of overall efficiency, the fuel cell is the undisputed frontrunner and on top of that generates ultra-low to zero emissions,” said Dr. Philippe Gorse, whose team is responsible for conceptual work on the fuel cell in the Power Lab.
“That makes it a highly attractive option for contributing to the decarbonisation of drive systems and power generation,” he added.
