Hydrogen technology for shipping (H2SHIPS)
The Interreg North-West Europe project H2SHIPS demonstrates the technical and economic feasibility of hydrogen bunkering and propulsion in shipping and identifies the conditions for successful market entry of hydrogen technology. In H2SHIPS, a hydrogen-powered port vessel will be built in the Netherlands. Another project outcome will be an action plan for the implementation of H2SHIPS solutions on the Seine in Paris 2022.
H2SHIPS is coordinated by the European Institute for Energy Research (EIFER) and consists of 12 partners from 5 countries. Steinbeis Europa Zentrum supports EIFER in project management and is responsible for communication, dissemination and exploitation of the project results.
