As all other sectors as well as society the shipping industry is facing the major challenge of decarbonization resulting in a major reduction of GHG and other emissions. The use of hydrogen as a fuel is promising as well as challenging and requires a major shift in shore infrastructure, on board fuel storage and overall ship design. In the midst, PEM fuel cells can be used for clean, zero-emission onboard power generation at a very low noise level. In this webinar, we will zoom in on the PEM fuel cell technology in general and how to integrate as main power generators in ships.
