BeHydro is a joint venture between CMB.TECH and Anglo Belgian Corporation (ABC), that has revolutionized the industrial sector with their innovative hydrogen-powered engines.
BeHydro has developed a range of mono fuel and dual fuel hydrogen engines that meet stringent emissions regulations, including IMO Tier II, IMO Tier III (with SCR after-treatment system), and EU Stage V (with SCR and DPF) after-treatment system). With fuel flexibility being a crucial aspect in the market, BeHydro's engines can use various types of fuel such as diesel, Marine Diesel Oil (MDO), Gasoil (GO), dual fuel (diesel + Hydrogen), biofuel, and vegetable oil. BeHydro's hydrogen engines can cope with inpurities in the gas supply so a fuel cell grade H₂ is not required.
BeHydro uses medium-speed engines, built up to last for 150.000 running hours. They are designed with robust and proven technology, making them highly reliable and durable. They are compatible with existing drive trains, making them an ideal choice for locomotives, ships and power generation.
In 2020, BeHydro launched the first hydrogen-powered dual-fuel engine with a capacity of 1 megawatt (MW), and based on this technology, larger engines of up to 10MW can also be produced.
BeHydro 100% hydrogen engines
The pioneering BeHydro 100% hydrogen engines are the latest innovation from BeHydro. These engines deliver 100% clean energy and emit no harmful emissions such as carbon (CO₂), sulphur oxides (SOx), or soot particles. The BeHydro hydrogen engines have been developed for heavy-duty applications and have a power range from 1 MW to 2.6 MW. They are available in 6- and 8-cylinder in-line engines and 12- and 16-cylinder V-engines.
BeHydro engines provide a wide range of benefits, making them ideal for industrial applications. They do not use scarce raw materials such as lithium, cobalt, platinum, rare earths, and thus avoid environmental damage caused by the extraction of scarce raw materials. Moreover, they are non-toxic, do not cause any damage to human health, and contribute to a greener environment.
BeHydro's innovative 100% hydrogen engine range offers a clean and efficient solution for various heavy-duty applications. These engines are perfect to reduce the general carbon footprint and comply with stricter environmental regulations. BeHydro is committed to sustainability and will continue to develop engines that are eco-friendly, efficient, and reliable.

The hydrogen future starts today!
At the World Hydrogen Summit in Rotterdam today, BEH2YDRO is launching its 100% hydrogen engines for heavy-duty applications. These innovative, zero emission engines are ready to use and will allow the industry to further engage in 100% sustainable and environmentally friendly development. BEH2YDRO is a joint venture between ABC and CMB.TECH.
On Thursday, 27 October, the Hydrotug arrived in the port of Ostend. Here, the first hydrogen-powered tugboat will be further finished with the hydrogen system. Ostend was chosen because the tug can use the hydrogen bunkering facilities of CMB.TECH's Hydrocat 48 there.
