The shipping sector is one of the largest emitters of CO2 worldwide. Emission standards and environmental regulations for the entire maritime sector are becoming increasingly stringent. Against this backdrop, pressure is also growing to migrate to sustainable propulsion concepts.
Megayachts, ferries and cargo ships have very high power requirements. At present, these needs are met by noisy diesel engines with significant carbon dioxide emissions. Fuel cells can be used on a wide range of vessels, depending on the specific performance requirements. In fact, they are capable of supplying the entire propulsion energy needed in such fields of application. This makes silent and emission-free mobility a distinct possibility for the shipping sector.
As a specialist manufacturer of fuel cell stacks and components, EKPO offers a range of solutions ready for series production: our stacks bring together the benefits of high power density with those of compact design and low weight. Thanks to the high efficiency, hydrogen consumption is low, resulting in significant savings in total cost of ownership (TCO).
