Toshiba delivers fuel cell system to ship

Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation (Toshiba ESS) has delivered a 30kW hydrogen fuel cell system to a fuel cell ship.

The ship, which passed the Temporary Navigation Permit Inspection of Japan Craft Inspection Organization on 30th October, is still in the demonstration phase and being verified by NREG Toshiba Building Corporation and the Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology (TUMSAT).

The fuel cell system reduces the volume per unit power outage by a third compared to the stationary fuel cell systems due to its simplified design and package improvement, Toshiba ESS explained.

As part of a joint research project, NREG Toshiba Building Corporation and TUMSAT have contributed to the realisation of environmentally friendly hydrogen fuel cell ships and have begun demonstration tests of a fuel cell ship Raicho N with Toshiba’s 3.5kW pure hydrogen fuel cell system as of October 2016.
