TECO 2030 granted compressed hydrogen fuel system AiP by DNV

Norwegian-based TECO 2030’s compressed hydrogen fuel systems design has received an Approval in Principle (AiP) from DNV.

Coming with no “showstopper conditions,” the company said the AiP “affirms the viability and safety” of its system designs.

Said to be applicable for all ship types, the design covers essential components such as a bunkering system, inert tank connection space, fuel storage hold space, fuel supply system and gas relief system.

Furthermore, TECO claims the design adheres to the IMO’s MSC 1/Circ. 1455 guidelines for the approval of alternative designs for systems onboard vessels, which it said, “ensures rigorous evaluation and compliance with industry standards.”

Without disclosing where the system will first be applied, the company will provide a complete set of documentation tailored to the ship in questions, which will then undergo review and approval by DNV.

Tore Enger, Group CEO of TECO 2030, said the new AiP validates the company’s “commitment and competence” in driving sustainability in the maritime sector, while also underscoring the potential of hydrogen as a solution for the future of shipping.
