Shell’s Three-Way Partnership For Naval Fuel Cell Deployment

278

Shell has come on board a Korean maritime fuel cell project as reported by Splash247.

Commercialising solid oxide

The Anglo-Dutch energy giant is joining Doosan Fuel Cell and Hyundai Heavy Industries in a bid to commercialise the use of solid oxide fuel cell systems at sea by 2025. 

The consortium will test a 600-kilowatt system as an auxiliary power unit on actual trade routes for more than a year. The plan is to get a shipowner and a class society involved in the project soon too.

Three-way partnership

“The three-way partnership is an important starting point for Doosan Fuel Cell to speed up its marine fuel cell business and preempt the market,” CEO Chung Hyung-rak said.

Other South Korean shipbuilders including Samsung Heavy Industries and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering are also at an advanced stage in terms of deploying fuel cells on ships.
