Our project partner Port of Amsterdam is currently very busy working on the hydrogen-powered vessel which is part of the pilot project aiming to demonstrate the feasibility of operating an inland port vessel with hydrogen as a fuel.
The images show first artist impressions of the new zero emission hydrogen-powered vessel. The 20-meter-long vessel will operate both in urban areas (Amsterdam’s canals) as well as in the seaport area between Amsterdam and IJmuiden. The vessel will be completely emission-free and silent, operating with a battery and a fuel cell.
Sodiumborohydrid, a familiar ingredient in washing powders, will be used as hydrogen carrier, a powder (to be) diluted in water, which should guarantee a safe storage with a high flame point.
Watch the space for the next steps in this exciting development!
