‘World’s first’ liquid hydrogen-powered ship awarded Ship of the Year

LMG Marin’s liquid hydrogen-powered ship, which the company says is a world’s first, has been awarded Ship of the Year by Skipsrevyen.

Dubbed Hydra, the ship features an 80 cubic meter hydrogen tank that allows 24/7 sailing for up to three weeks between Hjelmeland, Nesvik and Skipavik.

The ship’s passenger lounge layout meets related to hydrogen use and storage safety rules.

Commenting on the recognition in a LinkedIn post, LMG Marin, said, “LMG Marin is proud of this result and hopes Hydra will pave the way for even more innovation into shipping.”

As well a liquid hydrogen, the ship can also sail of diesel genset.

US DOE, General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power

What does the US Department of Energy (DOE), General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power have in common? They’re all speaking at H2 View’s North American Virtual Hydrogen Event in October. Will you be joining us on October 19?

North America is in a prime position to lead efforts in decarbonisation, but it still has great distances to travel. The region has been giving chase in a race to green hydrogen dominated by Europe and Asia-Pacific. If policymakers and industry can work together and take the right steps to realise a hydrogen vision, the region is perfectly placed to expand its global energy leadership at scale and speed.

What lessons can be learned from Europe’s policymakers? What are the challenges to be overcome? What are the strengths and opportunities? How can North America go from giving chase to taking a lead in hydrogen? These are all questions our virtual event will address across H2 View’s four pillars of Mobility, Power, Policy and Technology.
