Revolutionizing Maritime Transportation: Retrofitting Ships with Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Fuel
Key Ideas
  • TECO 2030, BLOM Maritime, and Samskip receive a grant to retrofit Samskip's vessel Kvitnos with fuel cells and hydrogen fuel, aiming to significantly reduce emissions.
  • Samskip is dedicated to achieving net zero emissions by 2040 and sees this project as a key step in reducing or even eliminating emissions from their vessels.
  • The project involves preparing for the retrofit of Kvitnos, supported by Blom Maritime in providing the necessary documentation for approval of the fuel cell and hydrogen solution.
  • This initiative aligns with Samskip's sustainable goals, including using biofuels, shore power, and innovative vessel designs to move towards zero-emission shipping.
TECO 2030, BLOM Maritime, and Samskip have secured a grant to conduct a pre-project to retrofit Samskip’s vessel Kvitnos with fuel cells and hydrogen fuel, with the aim of reducing emissions. The vessel, currently operating on a route from Rotterdam to Hammerfest, will undergo a transformation to zero-emission hydrogen technology, aligning with the partners' commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Samskip, known for its sustainability initiatives, is striving to achieve net zero emissions by 2040 and sees this retrofit project as a significant step towards that goal. Blom Maritime's involvement in providing necessary documentation for the fuel cell and hydrogen solution approval showcases their support for sustainable maritime practices. Additionally, Samskip's efforts extend to various eco-friendly solutions like biofuels, shore power utilization, and innovative vessel technologies to ensure environmentally friendly operations. This project not only aims to reduce emissions from existing vessels but also sets the stage for future hydrogen-powered projects, marking a pivotal moment in the maritime industry's shift towards sustainability.

Our vision is to be the world's leading online platform for advancing the use of hydrogen as a critical piece needed to deliver net-zero initiatives and the promise of a clean H2 energy future.
