A Scottish boatyard has won a bid for EU funding toward building the world’s first ever seagoing hydrogen-powered roll-on/roll-off passenger (Ropax) ferry.
“The HySeas III project is led by Ferguson Marine and the University of St. Andrews. Their consortium also includes Kongsberg, Ballard Power Systems Europe, hydrogen fuel supplier McPhy, German aerospace agency DLR and ferry industry association Interferry. Funding will be provided under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and development program.”
