For a period of five years! World's first liquid organic hydrogen storage project receives €15 million funding
Ship-aH2oy will apply green hydrogen from megawatt-scale liquid organic hydrogen storage LOHC technology to develop and apply zero-emission propulsion technology on board, according to a foreign press report. The European Executive Agency for Climate Infrastructure and the Environment has allocated €15 million to support the project, which will last for five years and be undertaken by 17 collaborating units.
The project uses LOHC and solid oxide fuel cell SOFC as the powertrain, which is a significant improvement over conventional internal combustion engines. The LOHC/SOFC powertrain developed by the project will be integrated into Edda Wind's commissioning/service operation vessel (C/SOV) for demonstration applications.
