The combination of hydrogen energy and fuel cell technology is a major strategic direction of the world’s energy transformation and power transformation, and an important strategic measure to deal with global energy shortages and reduce environmental pollution. Hydrogen fuel cells can be used as both propulsion power and power supply for ships, and are suitable for ships such as ferries, supply ships, patrol ships, cargo ships and sightseeing ships. Compared with other energy solutions, hydrogen fuel cells have the characteristics of high efficiency, no pollution, and low noise. Its advantages have attracted the attention of all countries and major shipping companies around the world, and will become one of the preferred power sources after the internal combustion engine.
The hydrogen fuel cell power system is the integration of multiple devices, components and sub-systems, involving a wide range of industries. It can not only drive the ship transportation industry, but also drive the vigorous development of related equipment manufacturing and other industries.
With the continuous rise of the world oil price, the improvement of environmental protection requirements, and the reduction of the cost of hydrogen fuel, the widespread application of hydrogen fuel cells in the ship industry is just around the corner, which will lead the replacement revolution of ship power systems.
