Antwerp maritime group CMB pioneers environmentally friendly shipping with Latest Hydrogen-Powered Vessel.
The Hydroville is a pilot project for the use of hydrogen technology on large, oceangoing ships. Hydrogen can be extracted from the environment (ex. water) relatively simply, and does not release any CO2, atmospheric particulate matter or sulfur oxides when it is combusted.
As a reference in maritime safety, Ausmar has supported this project by providing the vessel with Duarry Liferafts.
The Hydroville is fitted with 16 seats that can be set up in three different configurations. Besides the commuter configuration, they can also be set up for meetings, with all the seats placed around a large central table. It will commute daily between Kruibeke and Antwerp to provide an efficient, environmentally-friendly transport. The vessel will also function as a base for demonstrating the use of hydrogen in shipping and will be sent out to attend events all around Europe in this context.
