Advantages over other technologies
The technology has clear advantages over other low and zero carbon alternatives.
- Cost : Optimized balance of maximized emission’s savings while ensuring that the extra required CAPEX is minimal.
- Reliability : combustion engines are robust, reliable and have a long operational track record
- Zero carbon : ICE monofuel engines reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero, ICE dual fuel engines reduce emissions by 60 to 90 % depending on the load and the engine type
- Available today : large marine and industrial applications can be converted to H2ICE today
Dual fuel engines offer the added advantage of full diesel back-up in case hydrogen is not available or too expensive. This is a very important added benefit for industrial and marine operators.
