Havyard Developing Hydrogen Zero-Emission Vessels

Source: 1/21/2021, Location: Europe

Europe is devoting extensive resources to achieving the climate goals, and the maritime industry is part of the solution. Green solutions and zero-emission vessels are in high demand in several segments.

Now, a European player has contracted Havyard to develop a new ship concept for cargo transport, and it must be emission free. The partner was first introduced to Havyard by Invest in Norway, who has been working with this company for the last 2 years in supporting their entry to the Norwegian maritime industry.

New concept – zero emissions
Lars Conradi Andersen, Vice President Sales, says that through this pilot project, Havyard will combine the company’s expertise in hydrogen energy systems and ship design to develop a brand new concept for transporting cargo between European ports.

‘The framework for this contract is to develop a ship that uses hydrogen-based fuel as its primary energy source while at the same time giving the client an effective and safe ship. The goal is to design a large ship that can sail longer distances with zero emissions.’ The new partner has taken note of Havyard’s hydrogen expertise and work on zero-emission vessels, in addition to Havyard Design’s advanced simulation tool for developing energy-efficient solutions.

Hydrogen-based fuels must be stored differently than traditional fuels, since they require more space and different security systems.

‘Havyard is the ideal partner in this regard, since our research and development work in the area of both hydrogen and simulation-driven ship design has given us unique cross-cutting expertise in how to design ships with low environmental impact,’ says Andersen.
