The H2SHIPS project is proud to publish the feasibility study carried out by SYCTOM on the use of Hydrogen propulsion for their future fleet of barges in Paris.
The study confirms that the Hydrogen - Fuel Cell option will offer a technically and commercially viable solution for the water-based logictic chain linked to the new plant to be build in Romainville. Residual waste will have to be transferred to SYCTOM's energy recovery plants via the canals and the Seine Rivers. Ship transport is he most energy-efficient way for moving heavy goods - and now green hydrogen will make it low-carbon and air pollution-free.
Let us push the energy transition of inland water transport one step further!
The study can be found in our download section.
Further studies will be conducted to identify the best locations to refuel hydrogen powered ships in the Paris area. Futher results will soon follow, so stay tuned!
