Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, MOL Drybulk and Japan Engine Corporation (J-ENG) has revealed today (Nov 9) a new agreement to cooperate in trialling a hydrogen-fuelled engine on an in-service vessel.

Mitsui has said that this will be the world’s first, low-speed, two-stroke hydrogen-fuelled marine engine.

The agreement aims to tackle the rising urgency to decarbonise the maritime sector with hydrogen technologies recognised as a key fuel to transition to zero-emissions.

In cooperation with Kawasaki Heavy Industries and Yanmar Power Technology, J-ENG will develop the hydrogen-fuelled engine, which will be the world’s first main engine for large ocean-going or coastal vessels.

Through this agreement, MOL, MOL Drybulk, and J-ENG will conduct a trial with an in-service vessel equipped with hydrogen-fuelled engine, aiming to commercialise net zero hydrogen-powered vessels and promote their wide adoption in the ocean shipping industry.
