A consortium of partners has unveiled the UK’s first demonstration of zero-emission marine technology in the Tees Valley, in north England.
In a bid to show the path available for the maritime sector to decarbonise, the demonstration will convert a Lochin 33 “workboat” into a dual-fuelled vessel acting as a testbed to prove the concept of a retro-fit green hydrogen solution.
For the purposes of the demonstration, the modified marine vessel will operate at sea, though the technologies are suitable for use by inland waterway vessels. The project is expected to take seven months, with trials running in Spring 2022. [Read more…] about Small ship takes part in UK’s first hydrogen transport trials
