NEXT GEN Marine HYDROGEN - October 2022

Back to all news


NEXT GEN Marine HYDROGEN via Zoom - 18 October 2022

With safety always front and centre, NEXT GEN Marine HYDROGEN brought end-users and industry together to address the burning issues and opportunities that hydrogen will bring.

Significant government funding on both sides of the Atlantic will rapidly build hydrogen infrastructure. Much of this will be around ports, leading to a ready supply of hydrogen for marine power and propulsion.

Workshop Lead John Haynes said, 'Since running the first edition of NEXT GEN Marine HYDROGEN in October 2021 the world has changed. Energy security and the drive for alternative fuels is now urgent. Obstacles and barriers to hydrogen adoption are rapidly being removed. For marine it is now essential to establish which fuels could cater for each sub-sector and what infrastructure will be required to support these changes.'

Expert presenters and dyamic panel discussions examine the facts behind the transport, storage and use of hydrogen. As innovative technology reaches high readiness levels and projects move from concept to application - how can we integrate this with operations at sea and when will it be available?
