Finnish technology group Wärtsilä and clean-tech start-up Hycamite TCD Technologies have entered into a joint development agreement to enable cost-effective hydrogen production from LNG onboard marine vessels.
H2 View understands, the concept design will allow existing LNG infrastructure to be utilised and enable hydrogen production, in combination with Wärtsilä’s LNGPac Fuel Gas Supply System.
By producing hydrogen onboard and blending it with LNG, it is hoped the carbon dioxide and methane emissions from Wärtsilä’s current fuel flexible engines can be reduced. The partners have said the by-product from the process is solid carbon which can be easily stored and managed onboard.
