Hydrogen in Marine
Hydrogen has a role to play in decarbonizing transport since shipping contributed approximately 2.6% (938 million tons) of the world’s total CO2 emissions in 2012. H2 provides a promising alternative for shipping because of its high ratio between transported weight and average mileage per day/trip, which is approximately 6000 tons and 750 km per trip.
Hydrogen is odourless, colourless, and tasteless, but by using specialised sensors means the detection of leakages is not a problem. To achieve a successful implementation of hydrogen technologies, more effort is required in:
• Infrastructure Development
• Reduction of Cost
• Increase of Lifetime
• A history of Safety Operations
• New regulations, codes, and standards by the International Maritime Organization and Classification Societies
