AqualisBraemar LOC, Longitude Engineering, Poole Harbour Commissioners and Green Hydrogen Solutions Awarded Grant to Study Green Hydrogen Production Barge
London, 15 September 2021: AqualisBraemar LOC, Longitude Engineering, Poole Harbour Commissioners and Green Hydrogen Solutions have been awarded a grant to study a Green Hydrogen Production Barge concept feasibility study for powering local marine vessels and other port use cases.
The study will look into the Hydrogen demand for replacing current activities with Hydrogen as a fuel contributing into the Poole Harbour and government ambition to reduce GHG emissions from marine operations.
“This project is aimed at providing rapid infrastructure for hydrogen production at the point of requirement. Providing ready availability of hydrogen will support its adoption as a viable alternative marine fuel and contribute to the reduction of the sectors’ emissions. It also looks at the feasibility of integrating already available renewable energy sources nearby to ports, to facilitate the acceleration of maritime’s energy transition,” says Dean Goves, Managing Director of Longitude for Marine Vessel Design.
“Green Hydrogen Solutions is excited about this project as it will prove the concept of producing hydrogen on a barge and enable hydrogen production in marine environments close to areas of demand. Most importantly, this solution is scalable and mobile, which will have global applications by allowing access to green hydrogen production in the developed and developing world,” says Ebrahim Takolia, CEO of Green Hydrogen Solutions.
Note on Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition
The Green Hydrogen Production Barge is part of the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition, funded by the Department for Transport and delivered in partnership with Innovate UK.
Announced in March 2020, and part of the Prime Minister’s Ten Point Plan to position the UK at the forefront of green shipbuilding and maritime technology, the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition is a £20m investment from government alongside a further c.£10m from industry to reduce emissions from the maritime sector. The programme is supporting 55 projects across the UK, including projects in Scotland, Northern Ireland and from the South West to the North East of England. As set out in the Clean Maritime Plan (2019), Government funding has been used to support early stage research relating to clean maritime. The programme will be used to support the research, design and development of zero emission technology and infrastructure solutions for maritime and to accelerate decarbonisation in the sector.
