Implementing fuel cells and Hydrogen technologies in PORTS
H2Ports project is an Action aligned with the needs and objectives of the European Commission and the port industry. The objective is to provide efficient solutions to facilitate a rapid evolution from a fossil fuel-based industry to a low carbon, zero-emission sector. Hydrogen has been tested in other sectors of logistics and transport as a solution for feeding machinery and vehicles, so the action proposes different pilots to bridge the gap between prototypes and pre-commercial products:
- The first prototype will consist of a reach stacker vehicle powered by hydrogen and tested in a real test in a port container terminal.
- The second prototype will consist of a yard tractor equipped with a set of fuel cells for testing in the loading/unloading operations of a Roll On-Roll Off (Ro-Ro) terminal.
- The third prototype will consist of a mobile hydrogen refuelling station, which will provide the necessary fuel in the appropriate conditions and quantity to ensure the continuous operation of the abovementioned equipment.
The H2Ports project also has as a transversal objective the realization of adequate feasibility studies for the development of a sustainable hydrogen supply chain in the port, coordinating all the actors involved: customers, hydrogen producers, suppliers, etc.
