We are delighted to announce that we have been successful in attracting the necessary funding to develop two significant hydrogen projects, helping to position the company as hydrogen leaders in the maritime sector.
The first of the projects, HyDIME, will start in July and will see Ferguson Marine working with our project partners to install a small hydrogen injection system on board an existing vessel within the next year, reducing the carbon footprint of the vessel while at the same time allowing us to learn all about the challenges involved with storing and using hydrogen gas on board a ship.
This will put us in a fantastic position to deliver HySEAS III, a much more significant project that will deliver the world’s first zero emission seagoing passenger ferry powered entirely by hydrogen developed from renewable sources, designed and built in Port Glasgow by the Ferguson Marine team.
Chris Dunn, Chief Naval Architect at Ferguson Marine, commented:
“We are thrilled to have secured the funding to proceed with both of these exciting new projects. This is ground-breaking technology that once again positions us at the forefront of marine innovation, leading the world in the race to develop sustainable and affordable zero-emission marine transport.”
Please continue to monitor our website as we will be publishing updates on the progress of both projects over the coming months.
