On wednesday 30th may 2018, Ph.D. Carlos Fúnez, representing to the National Hydrogen Centre (CNH2), participated in the advisory board meeting of the MARANDA project in Paris.
MARANDA, a FCH JU funded project, will accelerate the introduction of Fuel Cell and Hydrogen in the Marine sector. This project will contribute to meeting marine regulations and greening marine activities.
A 165 kW (2 x 82.5 kW AC) fuel cell powertrain (hybridized with a battery) will provide power to the vessel’s electrical equipment as well as the dynamic positioning during measurements, free from vibration, noise and air pollution in the ARANDA ship.
A mobile hydrogen storage container, refillable in any 350 bar hydrogen refueling station will be developed in this project. Liquid hydrogen, more suited to larger fuel cells, will be taken into consideration in the business cases and go-to-market strategy.
