Sembcorp Marine, Penguin International partner Shell in trial of hydrogen fuel cells for ships


MARINE and offshore engineering group Sembcorp Marine and high-speed craft builder Penguin International are working with Shell to trial the maiden use of hydrogen fuel cells for ships in Singapore, the oil major said on Wednesday.

In a statement, Shell said its analysis points to hydrogen with fuel cells as “the zero-emissions technology which has the greatest potential to help the shipping sector achieve net-zero emissions by 2050”.

“If successful, this collaboration could help pave the way for cleaner, hydrogen-powered shipping,” it said.

The trial involves the development and installation of an auxiliary power unit proton exchange membrane fuel cell on an existing roll-on/roll-off vessel that transports goods, vehicles and equipment between the mainland and Shell’s Pulau Bukom manufacturing site.
