U.S. to study hydrogen fuel

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Maritime Administration (MARAD) will provide $500,000 to support a feasibility study for the design, construction, and operation of a high-speed passenger ferry powered by hydrogen fuel cell technology and a hydrogen refueling station.

The fuel cell would provide power for propulsion and auxiliary electrical systems, while the hydrogen refueling station — which would be the largest in the world — would service the ferry, electric cars, buses and fleet vehicles, and other maritime vessels powered by fuel cells.

“This study is just one more way in which MARAD is working to find new and efficient technologies for use in the maritime industry that offer clean-fuel options to cut emissions,” said Maritime Administrator Paul “Chip” Jaenichen. “The U.S. maritime industry can play an important role in reducing the world’s carbon dioxide emissions and creating a more sustainable future for us all.”
