Carisbrooke Shipping partners with Carnot to develop a zero-emission 50kW hydrogen auxiliary engine demonstrator
17 February 2023
Carisbrooke Shipping has partnered with Carnot whose consortium has been awarded £2.3m ($2.75m) to develop a zero-emission 50kW hydrogen auxiliary engine demonstrator.
Following design, simulations and rigorous testing, the revolutionary single-fuel hydrogen 50kW engine will be integrated into a containerised system and mounted on the deck of one of our cargo vessels for a 40-day sea trial in early 2025 to partially supply electrical power to the vessel. The core goal is to validate the decarbonising impact that high efficiency, zero emission engines can have in the maritime industry. In the future, this technology could be used to power tug-boats, ferries, cargo vessels, tankers and container ships.
Bureau Veritas and The Maritime and Coastguard Agency are also being engaged as the vessel’s regulatory authorities to ensure a safe path to regulatory compliance. This will be among the first projects to achieve Approval in Principle for a Hydrogen power generation technology on board a UK Flagged vessel.
Wartsila and MAN, the world’s top two marine engine makers, are readying their own hydrogen engine designs, to speed up the development of dual-fuel hydrogen-powered solutions for both on-land and at-sea applications.
