  • British maritime companies Krensen, Trident Marine Electrical, and ACUA Ocean have collaborated to develop a cutting-edge zero-emission liquid hydrogen marine powertrain system.
  • The partnership combines expertise in electric and hybrid marine propulsion, electrical engineering, automation, and UK patent-pending hydrogen technology
  • The collaboration is aided by funding from the UK Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition Round 2 (CMDC2) initiated in May 2022.

The key components of the zero-emission liquid hydrogen powertrain system being developed by Krensen, Trident Marine Electrical, and ACUA Ocean include:

  1. Liquid Hydrogen Cryogenic Tank: ACUA Ocean’s novel liquid hydrogen cryogenic tank, which has received Lloyd’s Register Certification, is a critical component of the powertrain system and serves as the storage tank
  2. Hydrogen Fuel Cell: The system utilizes a hydrogen fuel cell to convert hydrogen into electricity, which is then used to power the electric motors. This component is designed to produce zero emissions and is key to the powertrain system
  3. Electric Motors: The system includes electric motors that are powered by the electricity generated by the hydrogen fuel cell. These motors are designed to provide efficient propulsion and are a critical component of the powertrain system
  4. Propulsion System: The system includes a propulsion system that integrates the electric motors with the propellers or propulsors. This system is designed to provide efficient propulsion and is a key part of the powertrain system
  5. Energy Storage: The system includes energy storage components, such as batteries, to store excess energy generated by the hydrogen fuel cell.
  6. Control System: This system manages the operation of the powertrain components, ensuring efficient and safe operation. This component is designed to integrate the various components of the powertrain system and is a critical part of the overall system

These components work together to provide a zero-emission powertrain system that is designed to be efficient, reliable, and safe.
