Marine Fuel Cell Approved in China

China Classification Society (CCS) has awarded China’s first certificate of type approval for a marine fuel cell product to Wuhan-based PEM fuel cell supplier Troowin Power System Technology, issued by CCS’ Wuhan branch following more than a year of reviews and on-site tests.

The approval marks a major milestone in China’s pursuit of commercially viable alternative fuels and provides a new channel for the use of hydrogen fuel cells on ships. The next phase of hydrogen development will see CCS undertake a series of real time tests on a purpose-built 2,100 dwt bulk carrier. The ship is currently at the design stage but is expected to be powered by four 130kW hydrogen fuel cells.
