FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR A VESSEL POWERED BY HYDROGEN USING THE LIQUID HYDROGEN CARRIER HYDROSIL
The project sets out to study the technical and economic feasibility of powering a passenger ship with hydrogen electricity using an inorganic liquid carrier called HydroSil as the energy vector. The project has been divided into two parts:
- A first phase that involves comparing the different energy vectors available for the zero-carbon propulsion of a NepTech 100-passenger ferry: electric batteries, gaseous H2, liquefied H2 and HydroSil – a solution developed by HySiLabs
- A second phase to validate the performance of the HySiLabs hydrogen release system operating in a marine environment.
