Funded by the Danish Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program (EUDP), the project is a joint effort between Advent, Alfa Laval and a group of Danish shipowners.
The project will focus on testing Advent's methanol-powered HT-PEM fuel cells as an auxiliary marine power source. During the project, the fuel cell system will undergo a risk assessment by a leading international classification society.
Vasilis Gregoriou, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Advent Technologies: "The Advent team is dedicated to accelerating the decarbonization of the maritime industry. Our Serene fuel cells run on methanol — a clean alternative to fossil fuels — which is safer to handle than hydrogen gas and can be easily deployed on site. Over the past several months, we have received significant interest from the marine industry in our methanol fuel cells. This gives us optimism about the future and our contribution to the sector's net zero emissions goal by 2050. We look forward to bringing this highly innovative EUDP-funded project to fruition. and to continue our collaboration with Alfa Laval".
Jeroen van Riel, Alfa Laval Business Development Manager for Marine Energy Solutions: “We are delighted to see the outcome of this promising collaboration with Advent, an experienced partner with innovative fuel cell products already deployed in the field. We believe HT-PEM technology has great maritime potential and look forward to further exploring Advent's differentiated technology as the maritime industry moves towards decarbonization".
