FPS continues their journey to retrofit container vessels with hydrogen power
Work on the Zero Emission Ports North Sea projects is speeding up as FPS heads towards finalizing the retrofit of the first inland vessel, FPS Maas, to 100% green hydrogen power and now the FPS Waal will benefit from a pre-paved path towards zero-emissions shipping.
Together with their partners Koedood Marine Group, Nedstack Fuel Cell Technology and Kooiman Marine Group they are currently in the midst of preparing their first fuel cell system for its Factory Acceptance Test (FAT). During the FAT, they will simulate several scenarios representative of the operating conditions of the vessel to ensure that the fuel cells can perform well once installed on board.
