Power generation for propulsion or auxiliary needs.

Lower greenhouse gas emissions are on everybody’s agenda. The Paris agreement places demands on all industries and legislators as well as industry organizations have responded with stricter regulations and tough targets. The International Maritime Organization, IMO, have set a target for the marine industry to cut emissions by 50% by 2050. To meet this target all marine sectors have to find new solutions - the pressure is on to choose a future fuel. One that will last the lifetime of upcoming builds, be competitive in the low carbon transport landscape and energy efficient to meet squeezed margins. Hydrogen is the best choice.

Future-proof marine power and economy

A hydrogen fuel cell system-based setup, including electrical engines, takes up little space, produces almost no noise or vibrations and require limited maintenance. As residual hydrogen, a byproduct in  various industrial processes is readily available you can drastically lower GHG emissions  already today and be ready to move to true zero emissions when hydrogen production from renewable energy sources increases. 

You are probably aware that diesel is the problem and that an electrification using batteries is not the solution to  all problems. For diesel the drawbacks are high maintenance costs, noise, smell and CO2 emissions limiting potential sailing locations. Batteries, although emission free, have a low energy density and therefore take up too much space without being able to provide the required running time. And the time required for charging limits operational usability and puts strain on local electrical grids. 

Supporting our customers in all steps

The maritime industry face complex challenges but rest assured, PowerCellution’s offer ranges the complete value chain of a fuel cell power system. With world-leading marine innovators and integrators the solution can be turn-key, including hydrogen production through electrolyzers, storage, the fuel cell with power electronics and of course propulsion.
