South Korea: Doosan Fuel Cell & KSME to jointly develop eco-friendly marine fuel cells

22 Mar 2021

South Korean clean energy company Doosan Fuel Cell (Doosan) and Korea Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (KSME) on Thursday (18 March) entered into an agreement to jointly develop an eco-friendly fuel cell for use by vessels.

The marine fuel cell is expected to be able to generate electricity from raw materials such as hydrogen and liquefied natural gas (LNG), and can increase the power generation efficiency by about 40% or more when compared to existing marine engines. 

“The fuel cell for ships can replace not only the existing power generation engines but also the main propulsion engine, and through an energy management system energy efficiency can be improved,” said Sang-jin Moon, Managing Director of Doosan Fuel Cell.

“Doosan Fuel Cell will strive to develop fuel cells that can be used in a variety of applications in addition to power generation and ship use.”
