Future-proof hydrogen-powered 5.000dwt general cargo vessels

Our collaboration with Boeckmans signifies a shared commitment to driving sustainability in the maritime industry. Together, we’re leading the development of four future-proof hydrogen-powered 5.000dwt general cargo vessels. These vessels, designed jointly with Handelskade, will revolutionise maritime transportation and significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Boeckmans’ expertise and industry reputation make them an integral part of our mission to transform maritime transportation for a greener future.

The ship’s primary design philosophy is to achieve lower emissions through hull shaping, innovative design and the application of the latest technologies. We succeeded in reducing emissions by 40% compared to traditional general cargo vessels in diesel mode. This can be reduced even further by implementing new sustainable propulsion systems and create storage space for fuels such as hydrogen. The ship’s diesel-electric configuration simplifies the integration of new systems into the power grid.

Antwerp Terminal Services (ATS) and CMB.TECH launch World’s First Hydrogen Dual Fuel Straddle Carrier

Antwerp Terminal Services (ATS), a joint venture between MSC PSA Europe Terminal (MPET) and PSA Antwerp (PSAA), today officially launched the world’s first H2 dual fuel straddle carrier in the Port of Antwerp during a brief ceremony. Using state-of-the-art H2 dual fuel combustion engine technology, developed by cleantech company CMB.TECH and integrated into a straddle carrier with the support of ATS, the machine runs on a mix of hydrogen and diesel. It can therefore play an important role in reducing terminal greenhouse gas emissions.
