Cryo Shipping receives grant to pursue hydrogen as a marine fuel

Bergen-based natural gas supplier Cryo Shipping has received a grant from the Norwegian government to develop infrastructure solutions for the supply of hydrogen as a marine fuel.

The company is cooperating with major players in the hydrogen industry, and says it is looking to serve Norwegian shipowners who are taking early positions in fully renewable marine fuels.

Are Magnussen, partner and project manager at Cryo Shipping, said: “Hydrogen as marine fuel is in an early phase, and that we still have a way to go with regards to developing suitable concepts, technical solutions, regulations and operational requirements.”

Hydrogen has found plenty of backers this year with engine maker MAN, Port of Antwerp, Électricité de France, BP, Port of Rotterdam and CMB all announcing hydrogen initiatives.
