Norwegian engineering and equipment development company TECO 2030 ASA said it has completed the feasibility and concept study for marine fuel cells together with its Austrian partner AVL List GmbH.

The company is now moving over to the next phase of maritime fuel cell development, in line with its Fuel Cell Development Roadmap.

The maritime industry drastically needs to cut its emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) to comply with global climate goals. Continued growth in the sector has been accompanied by rising emissions, and between 2012 and 2018, carbon emissions from the shipping industry increased by over 9%, according to the International Maritime Organization (IMO). ​

IMO has an ambitious target of reducing carbon emissions by 40% by 2030 and 70% by 2050, compared to 2008. Hydrogen will be essential to support the decarbonization of the maritime industry and make it more environmentally friendly, TECO 2030 said.
