Japan: NYK among first shipping companies to join the Hydrogen Council

29 Jul 2020

Japanese shipping firm NYK Line on Monday (27 July) said it is among the first shipping companies to become a member of the Hydrogen Council, a global initiative of leading energy, transport and industry companies with a united vision and long-term ambition for hydrogen to foster the energy transition.

Through the activities of this Council, NYK said it will work to build a hydrogen supply chain and promote decarbonisation through the conversion to alternative fuels to power its ships.

The company added that in the future, it will not only transport hydrogen but will also work to realise a hydrogen society, including the development of technology for utilising hydrogen as a bunker fuel. 

It noted it will also seek to accurately grasp business opportunities related to hydrogen, which is said to be the ultimate clean energy, and become involved in the entire supply chain.
