    About

    Common challenge

    Shipping industry and suppliers must invest in low carbon propulsion systems, but facing a number of market failures, as:

    • Vessels have long operational lifetimes (30–40 years), so little incentive to retrofit or replace
    • Number of new built ships per year is low, so ROI in innovative systems for shipbuilders is low
    • Limited faith and knowledge in effectiveness of alternative propulsion technologies
    • Alternative fuelling infrastructures in ports are limited
    • Regulation, security and certification haven’t been clarified
    • Market control of traditional oil/gas companies, protecting traditional fuel systems

    To tackle barriers, challenges are:

    • To demonstrate the effectiveness of low-carbon propulsion technologies in different types of vessels
    • To demonstrate the feasibility of H2 bunkering facilities in ports
    • To develop tools/methods which demonstrate and support the transition to low-carbon propulsion systems for new built vessels and by retrofitting
