Hydrogen-powered ferry to become a near-term reality

More plans have today (8th March) been confirmed for the world’s first operational hydrogen-powered ferry, developed by Norled.

As part of a new development, the Norwegian ferry operator has signed a contract with industrial gas giant Linde for the supply of liquid hydrogen and related infrastructure.

Playing a major role in the operation of the hydrogen-powered development, Linde have said they will provide a full-service solution to the MF Hydra ferry.

Linde will also build and install onshore and onboard hydrogen storage, distribution and safety equipment.

Commenting on the developments, Armando Botello, President Europe North, Linde, said, “Hydrogen is a powerful energy carrier with proven potential for reducing carbon emissions when used in mobility.”
